Hi ladies.. My center was made by a board member who does not join us any longer. Eula Burgess aka "Yahootie" was one of the first friends I made on the forum. Every time I hosted a swap she always joined. This swap had 12 ladies and each one chose a month to create their design by. Yahootie chose April and the Easter theme. I have used a few of my blocks for various things over the years and I still have this one left. So it will be my inspiration for a wallhanging that will hang in my quilting studio once finished.
When Yahootie sent in her April blocks she sent me a Redwork Pig block as a thank you. It became the center inspiration for my "It's All About Pigs" round robin that some of you may have worked on. It was used on one of Nicki's Crazy Quilt RR's on the forum. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!
Carolyn painted these adorable pigs for me and added them to the piece!
And speaking of Carolyn... Here is the front cover of the magazine where I got the pattern to make Nicki's Victorian pincushion. Sorry for the blur of light in the upper corner..
