Aren't these cute? Dawn at Quilts & Pieces sent me the pattern. They look big but they are only about 11" long and 8" high. So Cute!!!
My 7 yr old grandson is raising a pig right now , known as Maverick, so I thought these would be a cute gift for him to put on the shelf in his room. Quick and easy to make from scraps.

UPDATE on Old Tobacco Road quilt. I have added the flying geese border and stopped because I am still trying to figure out what to do to make it King Size instead of Queen. Hopefully, will have that question taken care of by next weekend.

It is holiday time and we are headed to Kerrville this weekend for a visit. This is provided DH is up to it. He is having a steroid epidural on Thurs. for a sever back problem he has had for about 2 months now. We decided to go before Thanksgiving and beat the traffic and hussle/bussle of the holiday weekend.

Know everyone is looking forward to the holiday. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Center of Old Tobacco Road Done!!!

I really do like the way this is going. Still have some borders to do, but this was the most time consuming part of this quilt.

Thanks to DH a square turned wrong was found and corrected. I wasn't happy because it was right in the center, but glad he found it now instead of later. Looking forward to doing the rest of the borders.

BTW what do y'all think about piano key border to bring this to king size. I really want to give this to youngest daughter and need for it to be king size. So it will be narrow solid border, flying geese border, wide solid border and then piano keys. Tell me what you think. Too much????
