Think Ruffles Blog Hop
Welcome to "In The Boon Docks" and Day 1 of the "Think Ruffles Blog Hop"! My name is Lisa and I am so happy you are here today to see my quilt with ruffles! I have to thank Madam Samm @ Sew We Quilt and Amy (Head Cheerleader)@ Sew Incredibly Crazy for arranging this great hop!
What is a ruffle? There are lots of different kinds and Madam Samm left it open to interpretation. She showed us how to make some and at the time I was thinking; ruffled bloomers, ruffled dresses, ruffled pillows. Then I saw a quilt in a magazine with what looked like ruffles! I kind of browsed through the issue of Quilt-it today, March/April 2014 issue and left it in my rocking chair and went to work. The second time I read the "Garden Path" pattern by Ann Baxter, (I had already made the quilt), it read "ruching", you don't know the horror I felt at that moment. They are made the same way! What is up with that? Then, I did some research on the internet and ruching is ruffles or plates. So, I am saved! I got my ruffles on!

On the Banks of Frog Creek
Sparrow In Flight
A quilt, not a big one, just one for Zoey's playpen she sleeps in when she stays with us. I chose a Joel Duberry kit I purchased Pink Chalk Fabrics months ago, the kit included (3 charm packs and (6) 1/2 yards of the solids) and I used every bit of all of it except (4) charm squares!
