Stitching the piglet

Hello everyone, Lynley here in Canberra, Australia. I've started handquilting on my little pink pig, although I don't know if I'll be finishing it any time soon! It's nothing complicated - just outline quilting in the pinwheels in a starburst style with navy thread. The pink and green blocks are getting freehand baptist fans. And I'm using a nice bright pink thread as someone suggested.

No idea about the border yet; we can wait and see how it progresses. At this stage I'm thinking something complicated and completely unrelated to the piecing of the border - like a cable, or feathers .... but I suspect I'll be getting sick of it all by that stage and it'll end up being straight lines. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
