Diced pork is done


I've finished the Little Pink Pig 2, which is what I've been calling it to myself, slightly meaninglessly. The big stitch quilting gives it a nice rumpled texture, but I'm not loving it - I find it unrestful to look at. My eye wants to follow those little pink flags all over the quilt, before collapsing exhausted at the edge.



But it was lots of fun to do, and the slicing and re-forming was a great challenge. It is much more interesting than it was before the chopping! Thank you all for your help and great suggestions.

congrats on the finish! I can't believe how quickly you got this done! I love those pink bits moving your eye around the quilt. I have a harder time with the big chunks of green that slow everything down. Your quilting looks amazing, you learned a bunch and had fun. excellent!

Oh its a delightful piece......if you really don't like it there is always a charity happy to take it.
But I think its a keeper and maybe it will inspired you to be more liberated :0) with your next quilt.

Happy Sewing
