another mini baby quilt


more fun with the ruffler!  tomorrow is my birthday and josh asked me if I wanted a day of pampering and I told him what I really wished for was a morning with no kids to just sew all I wanted.  and being the delight he is, he agreed and took the boys all morning and afternoon.  I have to admit I was a little befuddled at first when he left as to where to start but eventually got to working.    mostly I wanted to play with the ruffler so I put together another little mini snuggler.

I wanted to play with batting and fabrics.  I didn't use any batting for this one to see if the minky was enough.  I put it through the wash already to see how it would shrink up.  

And now I'll add it to the shop!

A New Mini-Quilt

It also inspired me to go out and buy myself a ruffler foot for my birthday.   It is so fun let me tell you.

The fabric design is a log cabin quilt pattern without all the sewing.  I loved it.

But there was also this fabulous yellow fabric that I couldn't say no to.  

I loved the combination of the three of them together.

The final product for my friend's baby will have minky on the back but I wanted to quilt it up just to see it together.  So I'm calling this a mini quilt and a doll quilt and putting it in my etsy shop.

Today I liked up with:
