One of my favorite McKim crib quilt patterns is The Three Little Pigs, though I prefer to call it The Big Bad Wolf. I guess I just think a wolf is more exciting than a pig so why not give the wolf some air time? (Click here to read my in-depth blog article about Ruby McKim.)
The embroidery work on this Big Bad Wolf quilt is particularly delightful. I am constantly amazed at the variety found in this pattern, which of itself seems so straight forward.
A bit of trivia about this quilt. I counted today----there are 74 different fabrics in the circles in outer border; 52 different fabrics in next border; 30 different fabrics in the blocks. Not one fabric is repeated in the circles and only the fabric in the houses is repeated within a block!
