Adorable!! I love it. Do you have a special foot for your sewing machine that makes ruffles?

I love this quilt. Beautiful!

Simply amazing. I would never have thought of such an idea. It is so feminine and pretty. I am sure your daughter will have long fond memories of this one of a kind piece.

I love it soooooo much!

I dont have a special foot. I folded over little bits which my co-worker tells me is technically not ruffling but tucking. Whatever ;)

I. Love. It.

You guys are so cool. I'm noticing these photos (and this post) are awful so your comments are extra sweet. Thanks ;)

I love it...it's adorable to go with the adorable little girl under it!

gorgeous! great job!

I just found your blog, I love, love, love your quilt. Would you mind explaining how you made it or give a tutorial? Did you attach the fabric to a sheet as a base? I think your quilt should be shown on www.sewmamasew.com, under "quilt of the day."

Brenda, thanks so much for the compliment! I took photos of the process planning to submit the quilt pattern/directions to Quilting Weekly (I have written a pattern for them before and actually started this with the intention of developing it into a pattern for them). But then Ive also been thinking about just doing a tutorial.

Anyway, since you asked, I did attach the fabric to a flannel sheet as a base. I tucked/ruffled a strip and then sandwiched two flat strips with a ruffle strip in between on the flannel, sewed and then folded a flat layer back upon which I stacked another row. Does that make any sense at all? Maybe if you youve sewn some ;) Once the entire top was done onto the flannel I bound the edges with a plain, flat sheet on the back. i did not quilt or tie the center which doesnt seem to be a problem even after a month of use.

Stay tuned for me to make a dang decision about a real pattern ;)

This is gorgeous!

I saw your ruffle quilt on Vintage Sheets blog - love it! So clever. Off now to read more of your posts...hey I'm a neighbor too - see ya at Thrift Town...

Warm hugs,

I love, love, love it! Did I mention that I love it? :D

Thanks, Erica. Glad you love it ;)

Saw your project in the VS blog, and thought I'd pop over and leave a comment here too. I *love* this quilt! So perfect for a little girl. Great job!
