You get a bunch of these -
Then if you make them run uphill
and give them a nice meadow to play in,
you end up with a top that looks like this.
Now just throw in some bacon (because according to my dad, I add bacon to everything) (can't argue with him there) (because bacon)
and add some whooshing lines of quilting,
and a nice confetti binding,
and you get a perfect quilt to give your dad for Christmas. (He raises pigs. He knows a good pig when he sees one.)
He loved it, by the way. I had a feeling he would. And he got one right big chuckle out of that bacon fabric on the back, as did all family members who've seen it since.
And I got a big chuckle when he asked me if I'd put it on the internet. See, he doesn't read my blog, so I got to tell him "Dad, there were people all over the world who knew you were getting a piggy quilt for Christmas, and you had no idea..."
Thanks, Angela, for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Without the RSC to get me and keep me going with this project, this Higgledy Piggledy quilt of mine never would have happened.
Oh, and Dad thanks you, too!
