Chasing orange piglets

Finally orange!
That orange fabric transfusion has really made it easier to make orange piglets, I'll tell ya!  I'll get back to my stash of orange scraps in a week or so, but in the meantime these spiffy fat quarters are making me smile.
I started this little piggie yesterday, as a leader/ender while making those itty bitty 365 Challenge blocks, then finished it up today.


And his little friend was also part of today's playtime.


And since I didn't get to flash any orange last Saturday for RSC, I figured I'd better make up for lost time.
A Jacks and Sixes (aka Hovering Hawks, aka Charlie, for all I know)


and a couple of Buckeye Beauties.


Though technically I'm in Maryland, not Ohio, so should they be Crabby Beauties?



Linking with So Scrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday, where I'll be happily hanging out with my fellow scrappers.  Come see all the fun!

Maybe you can have a piglet party when you get home and show them all together. I'm impressed that you're almost as prolific on vacation.

We promise we won't tell the quilt police about the fat quarters. The piggies are so worth it with those darling prints.

I'm not a huge fan of orange... but orange piggies are pure perfection!

Angie said...

Oh such yummy oranges! I'm all for Crabby Beauties - but shouldn't they be blue?! (or are they boiled already?)

I broke down and bought a few orange fat quarters, too - will have to cut into them next week. Those pigs are so bright and happy! Orange has turned out to be a fun color choice!

Cathy said...

Oh, yes. I can see that you love orange. My what a lot of lovely oranges you have! Sewing on vacation?
