Little Socks

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

for my laundry room.
Every sock has a match [except for the middle one].
Isn't that usually the case? 


Side note ~ I found this cute little chalkboard for $2.99 at a little bakery here so I had to pick up a couple.  I think I'll have fun playing with them.


Most of the fabrics in this quilt are from Sweetwater's
Hometown line for Moda.


I had to do a little machine blanket stitching around the toes and heals.


Gray ric rac in the binding.  I love ric rac in bindings.  So sweet. 
The whole thing is bound in this red and cream ticking stripe [except for one little patch where I was short].


Here's a little sneak peak of the backing.  It's flannel. 


Do you know that I love this little swirl design for the quilting?  I use it often.
I know this quilt is a little silly but I love the homespun feel of it.


Oh, there's the little star that my quilter hid in the quilting!  She always quilts in a little surprise for me to find.  Kinda fun.  Her name is Jen Ostler.  She is great and I love the hand guided look. 


[The sock pattern can be found HERE.]

  1. What a perfect quilt for the laundry room! Maybe one could grab one of those socks for all of the mismatched socks in the "for real" laundy.

  16. Jennifer,

    I wanted to reply back to your question through email but you are a no-reply blogger so I can't. I hope you get this...

    Jen's number is 801-772-0166. She is great. I heart her.

    Happy quilting!
