Many (many, many) months later I have finally completed the ruffle quilt pattern. I am very excited!
To plagiarize my own etsy shop:
"Detailed pdf quilt pattern with full color photos and video links. Pattern explains the techniques for making and attaching the ruffles as well as thorough information on assembling and binding your quilt.
Once you purchase the pattern, I will email you a full color pdf within 24 hours. Then you can print the 11 page pattern on your own printer and start sewing this unique quilt.
This pattern is easily adapted to quilts of different sizes but the description is for a twin bed sized quilt."
I needed a few more photos to clarify parts of the pattern so ended up making another ruffle quilt with different proportions. This one was really pretty quick with the wider strips between ruffles. And it's a baby sized quilt. Perfect timing as my cousin just had a baby girl a few weeks ago.
I spent a lot of time trying to describe how I bind quilts (which is a common technique but I thought it was important for the pattern to be really comprehensive).
When I was finally satisfied I took the plunge, pdf'd the whole shebang and posted it in my Etsy shop. Five minutes later, I sold a pattern. Amazing! Haven't sold one since but it was still a nice boost of confidence. $7 and I'll send it to your inbox.
Yay for checking things off the to do list.
