    I was looking on line for a different paper peiced pattern and found this site. There are a lot of cute farm animals on it. http://sewhooked.com/free-quilt-patterns/

    Trying to decide if this will work for me. I don't have anymore of this fabric so will need to pick something else out. My hand applique is not real good but here is a possible addition to our quilts.

    The piggy is cute. Please make sure that any embellishments are sent in a seperate baggie attached to the quilt block.

    Oh, I know for sure, cause that is how I prefer, I just set the button on to photo so you could see the effect of the eye I was going to choose. It is a pain in somewhere to have to try and load the quilt with embellishments, then to use a pattern which may hit one, no fun for a longarmer. No worries there. Just seeing if this was a pig to be used.

    Maybe I should just stick to the fusible applique.

    Was just trying to make the little piggie smell pretty since they love to lay in the mud. This little piggie wiggie is going to the fair all dolled up for show.

    Still debating on pigs to finish all six like them, but I have finished my barns. When i get all four sets finished, will post photo. I am a week behind on things so finally getting some sewing done instead of longarm. Will be at that this weekend for customers, but going to finish my farm blocks tonight. I am going to try doubling my embroidery applique designs and make a tractor and tree or a tractor and ei ei o letters above. not sure. Maybe a farm truck and ei ei o. What think? I still have the cow in the back of my mind as well. Not sure if cow or a bull.

    Oh I no Ms. Grace, no worries girl. I was describing why I chose the floral fabric. Nothing like dressing up those little piggies. Seeing how they can ride in cars screaming wheeeeeee all the way home. LOL.

    I am finishing up the last of my swap blocks. If I finish all the piggies, then I will be four sets otherwise I do have three finished. Will post photos tommorrow before I mail to you. I know you gave me your mailing address so I have to look up my wonderful PMs to find it again.

    They look even cuter in person. The tractors are all of a green and yellow plaid, thought of John Deere when made them. Yep, had to dress the pig up with pink painted toe nails. I doubled up on designs with the tree and tractor and the cow and eieio! letters. It came to me after I did the barns and thought I needed to send in larger squares. I am going to make the others for my own quilt and do the small 3.5" blocks so I can add them to the top of a 9.5 so can match a 12.5 or so the story goes. I am making a dog, another tree, a horse, a farm truck, and a chicken which are the rest of the designs in the pack for myself. Could not do them all for the swap, oh darn. I did notice that the pack does not have a cat in the mix. Hope someone is making a cat, every farm needs a good mouser, oh and there is another thing, a mouse, every farm has a nest of mice in it. Someone doing that? I am going to have to find one in my patterns to make that for my quilt if no one is making it.

    Since I am loosing it here, let me pass on a joke for you to keep the theme going.

    Why did the farm feed his cow money?


    He wanted rich milk.
