Pig Day and Pig-Give-Away from Made By Marney

After reading Kathy’s Quilts cute post on “National Pig Day” on March 1(who ever knew?), I realized there must be many more people who have a pig obsession besides me!

Her pig pattern came from Kelli at Seriously I Think It Needs Stitches, where Kelli shares this Pig Block tutorial. This has motivated me to also have a PIG-GIVE-AWAY.

After reading Kathy’s blog about Pig Day, I started thinking about how many times I have created pig related patterns…
