    I'm just loving all the great little DQs. I started quilting last night and didn't like the thread color so I pulled all the stitches out and will start again tonight. I dislike the actual quilting part the most.

    Defiinitely "This little piggie went to market, this little piggie stayed home, this little piggie had roast beef, this little piggie had none." It's there in all of the pictures of the little piggies. So cute.

    I have loved looking at all the wonderful doll quilts this month. Here is a little preview of mine for Jean D. I start quilting today. Hopefully bind tomorrow. We'll see how that goes. "The best layed plans of mice and men-----."Name:  Sunbonnet Sue 012.JPG

    Kitsey, I laughed so hard because before I actually read your post I saw the sliver of photo and thought my iPad hadn't downloaded it correctly, so I kept reloading the page.....to no avail! THEN...... I read your post....oh, duh! It's a sleek peak. Lol. Looks pretty cute! Will be anxious to see it.

    Well, Cogito, I am very patient sitting here waiting for it to arrive, haha.

    Oh, now I need to go look at the little pigs fabric again. I obviously jumped to conclusions when I saw two pigs and one pig! 2 + 1 = The Three Little Pigs, or so I thought. Guess this is the second time I've been wrong in my 72 years! Just kidding! LOL! I like QuiltyMom's Eagle quilt from Tesspug. I have some of the baseball fabric, I think.

    Okay, Kitsykeel, so where's the one 'wee-wee-weeing all the way home?' Enquiring mind wants to know!

    I saw the one who stayed home (reading a book) I saw the one with roast beef, I saw the one with none and I saw the one going to market to sell his birthday cake but I didn't see #5. Oh well, just gave me something to tease you about!

    Berryberry you sure found a treasure!
    Bertie you are such a kookaluke! (That's what my dad used to call us when we were being silly). Clearly the little piggy reading the book is also sitting on the potty. LOL. Two for one!
    Tesspug that is a cute log cabin!
    Cogito, I though Kitsy's sneak peak didn't load too.
    Okay, enough chit chat from me. I need to get back to working on your quilt Krystyna. I hit a bump in the inspiration road and took a break while my subconscious sorts things out.

    Au contraire! BuzzinBumble -- that's a regular lil chair -- no container underneath to catch outgoing.

    See how little I have to do today? Laughing WITH you!

    The original English version of the song said, "this little pig went crying all the way home." Another version was "this little pig cried wee, wee,wee, all the way home." One of the little pigs is crying. The pig reading the book is staying home. Do you think that quilters and Kindergarten teachers are the only ones who would analyze a piece of fabric to determine which pigs are which? I ask my DH what he saw and he said, "Some pigs."
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    OK Bertie, here we go. The little pig who had none is sitting next to the one who has a plate of food. The one who cried "Wee,wee,wee" all the way home is the one walking alone with tears coming from his eyes. Love to be teased, it makes for great fun. You seem like a great gal and I love all of your posts. You really keep things going on this QB and that is "a good thing" (to quote Martha.)

    Boy did I get that nursery rhyme wrong. I though the wee wee was ... well you know. Here I was looking for one on a potty.
    Okay, okay... I'll get back to work.

    You are all NUTS but such fun. I love all the little quilts that are arriving! Mailed to Anna today .. it is supposed to arrive on the 20th (same day she is due home from vacation!). How much fun to have a doll quilt from your childhood! I was the oldest so my younger sister pretty much used up anything I saved. Oh well, I loved her dearly and miss her every single day!

    Fifth Little Pig Mystery Solved: The last lil pig has been identified by Kitsykeel! I concede to her sharp eyesight. But since I always heard he WENT wee-wee-wee all the way home, I was like BuzzinBramble looking for proof, haha. Since he cried wee wee wee all the way home, the tears certainly make sense. Now if I had any, we wouldn't have had near as much fun today. And Tesspug my DH would have said exactly the same thing yours said if I had asked him what he saw. It is really cute fabric.

    Ok, I have to laugh cause I read this the other day after you posted and I swear I thought you said you miss sitting on your couch with your son and spitting seeds. LOL! I thought when I read that "wow she was really laid back to let him spit seeds in the living room ". Hahaha well tonight I re-read this post and now it says porch! Eyes are playing tricks on me.

    Laid back? Um, try disgusting! House rule: No spitting indoors. And actually, with the exception of watermelon seeds, no spitting at all. Blechhhh.

    Glad you like the DQ, Jan! I had fun using the modern dresden plate template for the first time. At first the quilt was square, but then I thought it begged to be a circle!
