Little Socks

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.]

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.

I've been quietly peeking over your shoulder watching your progress on this cute project. I absolutely love it. What a delightful idea for a quilt to hang in the laundry room.

I love it! I actually like the way your socks are going compared to the original. I wish I had a nice laundry room instead of a dark basement. lol

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!
