Sophie’s Ruffle Quilt

Sophie Ruffle 3

Ah, I love this quilt. If I had little elves that would appear after I went to bed and quilt for me I’d make a big one for myself. But alas – just me and my wimpy arms.  These arms are only barely capable of quilting baby quilts.

I’m a little late. Baby Sophie is already 1 month old.

Fabric – Front and Back:  Heather Bailey’s True Colors – Olive and Dove Dots

Fabric – Ruffle:  Heather Bailey Lottie Da – Olive

I monogrammed her initial on this quilt, then when it was all done I realized that I haven’t seen much monogramming around lately.  And then I realized that *gasp* it might not be cool anymore.  So tell me, please, is monogramming still cool?

    Monogramming is super cool because you don’t see it anymore. Everyone that I have given monogrammed things to (towel to a very young hip couple for their wedding, crochet baby blankets, etc) loves them. That blanket will be a hit!

      Thanks so much, for your kind words, Nicole. Sometimes I realize I’m so absorbed in my own world that I don’t realize what is going on around me! Ha!

    Love the monogram! Super adorable quilt! Did you quilt this after sewing the ruffle on?

      Thanks, Stephanie. This quilt actually has 2 layers of batting so quilting took place before the ruffle went on. Took me a while to figure out how to do it this way so even though it is more work I got the result I wanted.

    I love the monogram! But even more, I love the two dot prints. The dove color almost makes the olive dots seem like they are showing through translucently – make sense? Super pretty! Will you out out a tutorial?

      Thanks, Karla! I’ve been thinking about a tutorial…maybe a mini tutorial. I’ve just been so short on time lately.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity while taking care of my family. I homeschool my three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16), am a quilter, a bagaholic, and pattern designer.  Oh – and I also like taking pictures.
