Pigs in Space

 OK, so actually the pigs went to California.  These pigs are part of the March installment of the Gridster Bee.  Elizabeth asked for pigs - you can find instructions on her blog HERE.  The one on the top is for me - for my sampler quilt.  I didn't frame it, because I don't want to run out of fabric before all the year's blocks are made.  I can frame it later if necessary.  The bottom two went to Elizabeth

As I was going through the guidelines on the pigs, Elizabeth noted that they could be standing on purple, in space.  That got me thinking about Pigs In Space from the Muppets.

Thus, I had to make Pig in Space.
This pig has a lame space suit and is in the stars.  Since lame isn't really quilt friendly I turned him into a mini quilt for Elizabeth.

Hanging pockets on the back, which I also used as my labels.
 Shiny Pig.
