Welcome To My New Blog!

I began blogging in 2007 under the name of Pig Tales and Quilts at the gentle nudging of my friend Bonnie Minor.  In 2009 I lost my blog somehow and had to start over.  The name for my blog came about because my husband and I collect Catawba Valley Pottery from Western North Carolina and we have tried to collect a pig from each of our favorite potters. I wanted to showcase the pottery on the blog so hence the name, Pig Tales and Quilts.

Fast forward 7 years and although I was hesitant at first to change my name to Stitch and Quilt, the reason I finally gave in was because we no longer avidly collect pottery and the "pig tales" had fallen few and far between.  It was time for a new name.

I tried to piggyback off of the old platform of Pig Tales and Quilts so I would not lose my followers but I ended up doing so anyway. And then I got locked out of my blog completely and could not sign in any longer.  I hope in time to build my audience back up to where it was as my followers find me here on the new blog.

Please come along as I share my love for family, quilting, needlework, and crazy quilting.

  1. Good luck on your new endeavor! I have a feeling it won't be long before everyone finds you. Now, while I do admit I am here because of quilts and stitchy stuff, is there any way I could talk you into showing us a picture of the pigs? I dearly love pottery and I think trying to get a pig from each potter is the coolest quest. Oh, and I love pigs, too. I have a ton of darling pigs that my students have given me over the years :) So, could you show a picture of your pigs for old times sake? Pleeeeeeeeeease :) magistra13 at yahoo dot com

  3. Thanks for letting me know about the change. I have signed up here and will unsubscribe at Pig Tales and Quilts. I did not know how the name came about. One of my sisters collects pigs; one of my brothers, frogs. I have some frogs, some cats but mostly spiders.
    I second Beth for a look at your collection, even one at a time with the potter's name.
    Thanks.
