Really Random Thursday


Progress on my Single Girl quilt!  Since this photo I've finished 10 of the 12 rings.  I'm loving the complete scrappiness.   And I'm here to reassure you that this pattern is NOT that hard!  It's tedious cutting out all the pieces with templates.  You really want to be accurate with this part or you might have headaches!  The rest is not too tricky though!  Sewing the rings goes pretty smoothly just because they're such large circles that the curves are not tight.


Still steadily finishing up oldies!  I'll show you more photos of this finished Hopscotch quilt soon.  This one was made with a jelly roll of Dream On by Urban Chiks for Moda.


Somehow a new project snuck in on all these finishes...  i got Sunday Morning Quilts over the Christmas holidays, and can I say I looove this book??!!  I'm gonna talk more about it one of these days.


Anyways I went digging through my scraps and put together a biggish quilt top inspired by this book.(you can see it draped over the chair in the corner.)

This is my sort of random Thursday and I'm linking up to Cindy at Live A Colorful Life!

  1. I can't get over how talented you are at picking fabrics! I love the scrappy look of your single girl quilt. I made a twin size for my daughter's bed a few years ago. It was tedious to cut all those pieces out, but a lot of fun to use a different technique too. Can't wait to see yours all finished!

  16. Oh.. I really love each ring is looking different from each other. I took your idea and went with some light printed fabric for the first single girl quilt I made for myself, but haven't finish the backing. For S' single girl, I went with sketch prints in blue, green, and orange. I am having trouble with quilting pattern ideas. I might go loops since I feel more confident with that pattern. Happy Sewing~ xc
