Welcome to my stop on the Think Ruffles Blog Hop! I am so happy you are here today :) If you haven't been to my blog before, welcome. Please sit back and stay awhile. I've been blogging for about 2 years now, I love sharing my projects, quilting challenges, tutorials, and an occasional recipe with you!

Today, I made a cute little owl to brighten up your home. This little guy will actually end up in my quilt guild's boutique later this year. I used a tutorial that you can find here. It's super easy and would be a great gift for a little girl or boy, don't you think?
The great thing about this tutorial is that you can use scraps and bits to put this together - I didn't buy a single item for this owl, just found some coordinating buttons and ric-rack ~ I was good to go!
For making ruffles, I use my wonderful Baby Lock Ruffle Foot. Yes, it looks very intimidating, but it's not!!
It turns fabric into wonderful ruffles in a snap!
Here is a quilt I made last year, and I think the ruffle border just sent the quilt over the top :)
You can find a tutorial for this quilt here.
Since I have two little boys, the ruffle foot doesn't get much of a workout in my home, but when I get to break it out, it just makes me smile!!
And for hanging in there with me today, I've got a great...
Recently, I won some delicious Aurifil goodies through a Facebook contest. I just LOVE Aurifil, I won't sew with anything else at this point. It has minimal lint, my Baby Lock loves it and the stitches just melt into the fabric. Among some other items, they were kind enough to send me a thread color chart. I already had one on hand so I am going to pass this fantastic resource on to you guys.
