Olivia, that crazy pig!

I went fabric shopping a few weeks ago with a good friend.  At the second quilt shop that we stopped at, we found some adorable Olivia fabric.  I remember when the first Olivia line came out.  Everyone was crazy about it, but I didn't love it.  The new line is too cute, though!  And as a bonus for those with boys who love Olivia, they printed this line in a green and blue colorway too!  I can't help but think, "man, that was a smart marketing decision!" :D

For my quilt design, I wanted a simple quilt that Addy could snuggle under and I didn't want to cut up the prints and lose the design.  The center of the quilt is a 42" square.  I added two borders, the first one is a 2" strip of the cream with red pigs.  The second border width was dictated by the fabric repeat - I think it's about 6.5" wide?  I used every last inch of that print-I was hoping to miter the corners, but I was short by several inches.  So I used my second favorite border design with y-seams! :)

For the binding and back I chose a creamy brown kona.  It's a very close match to the brown pig, who Addy has informed me is named Julian.  I just love how the creamy brown looks with the bubblegum pink!  Reminds me of some sort of chocolatey dessert involving strawberries......

For the quilting I used pink thread and quilted an all over loop design.
I love this fabric so much, it almost makes me want to watch the annoying tv show!
