Think Ruffles!

Another blog hop is beginning, and I had to stop working on my Delightful Stars Quilt-Along to get something made!  Never fear.  I will be back on schedule this week.

I've never been big on ruffles.  Mostly, I have added them to pillows.  It's not that I find them difficult; I just don't particularly like to do them.  That said, I haven't participated in the last couple of hops and wanted to get back in the loop.

I had bookmarked this apron pattern from One More Moore some time ago, thinking it would be really cute to make.  I made one, then I altered the pattern to make aprons for my 2 granddaughters.  I was happy with the outcome.  It is a quick and easy pattern.

They are all 3 very bright and will look great on my granddaughters, Julia and Lauren.  I am planning on giving the peach and black one to a friend for a benefit.  I made a ruffled dish towel to go with it.

  I thought they looked cute on the clothes line, but I am a retired science teacher--today I was subbing at my old school and went looking for a model.  I found the perfect one!

           Here she is modeling the apron and the dish towel--this is where you can usually find mine.

                       Then, I asked her to model all 3 for me.  She was very agreeable!

That's it for this hop!  Please visit the other ladies who are ruffling today!  Thanks Madame Samm and Amy for all of your time and talent organizing this great hop.  Who knows what great project I might find: I just might continue ruffling.  I guess making ruffles isn't all that bad.  These aprons went without a ruffle--well, with ruffles, but without a hitch?  Today's schedule:

Just Quilt It -- you are here
