During the retreat last weekend, it seemed to be the rule that you MUST go fabric
shopping during the course of the whole sew, eat, laugh, and play getaway thing.
So, of course, I went shopping and of course I bought fabric.
While on one of these shopping trips, I saw a cute quilt in a fabric store and loved
the fabric and method they used to make it. So, of course, I HAD to make it...my way...
(their's had ric rac, mine has a ruffle.)
Fabric: "Monkey Around" - designed by
Bethany Berndt Shackelford for Quilting Treasures.
It has raw edges and will need a few more machine washings to get the perfect frayed look.
It was so easy (and I do love that easy stuff) and it went together really fast.
I machine bound it using that fun method with a piping look (love it!)
Linda (that amazing long-arm quilter from the retreat) suggested the wavy lines in between the rows
and the extra waves at the top. I liked her idea and so I used it. Thanks, Linda!
Now I just have to find a little girl who needs this since my Monkey Boys aren't crazy about that ruffle.
