I designed this pattern a few years ago, and I really like it. It’s simple and fun to make – you can probably make it with fabrics you have laying around. It’s also easy to customize and personalize. I think it makes a nice anniversary present too.

Here’s a short video of me assembling the quilt:
- 1 dozen piglets (9″ by 22″)
- 2 1/4 yards from selvage to selvage
- Craft size batting
- Thread to blend with quilt top
- 3/4 yard for backing
- 1/4 yard for binding
- 1/4 yard for border
- 1/8 yard for accent strip from selvage to selvage
Color selection is one of the hardest things about this pattern. Make sure you take your time before choosing them. Take a look at some close-ups of the fabric I used in the video.
This is a great pattern for beginning quilters – I’ve taught it in many of my beginner’s quilting classes.
You can add some pizazz by appliquéing photos to the inside of the hearts, or in the corners.
