As my soon to be born daughter will be born in the year of the Pig (according to the Chinese horoscope), I made her a quilt with little piggies!





Here it is hanging over the crib:


Before I started, I went around searching for ideas and really liked this quilt (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=173624.0), so I copied the pattern & colour combination, but enlarged it (my quilt is 33" square).

I had a terrible time with the red binding, because the colour of the fabric ran ALOT (I prewashed it many times) and I ended up handsewing the binding as the fabric layers kept slipping on my machine (I used a regular industrial sewing machine). This is my 2nd attempt with patchwork/quilting.
 
*edit*
thank you for all your kind comments, and colour run-prevention tips! and yes, I knew when I started that I didn't want a pastel-ly or pink quilt.

This is gorgeous! I had fallen in love with that doll quilt as well, but never thought to enlarge the pattern into a baby quilt. I love your colors, fabrics, thread choice and everything else about this quilt! I'm sure baby will love it, too. Smiley

Your quilt is gorgeous - and a great idea too!  When/if you have to wash this quilt, and if you're still worried about the colour running, then try using a colour catcher, they're really good for preventing colours running into other colours.  My grandma uses them so she doesn't have to run a whites and a colours wash, and they work well.
