Single Girl


the last thing i needed at the end of the year was another half finished project.

so that's exactly what i got myself.  it was a lot of fun starting it. 
i know i'll love it when it's done. 
it's just that crazy in between part . . . which also explains a few too many other piles 
in the closet!


i've got all the pieces cut, so i'll slowly plug away at sewing them together.  i'm going completely scrappy 
for the colored circle (like i just pulled scraps for most of the pieces).  the background will be a mish mash 
of light colored solids and prints.  i'm doing the twin size, which is three rings by four.  this is the single girl quilt pattern, btw.

  1. This is going to be spectacular. If I could get the backing together for mine, I would send it off and have it machine quilted....

  4. I like your take on the single girl. This is one I have wanted to make but haven't yet. Let me know how difficult it is to piece.

  6. Might have to rethink my background plans (plain white) now that I've seen what you're doing. It'll be beautiful! I just ordered the pattern finally yesterday and I'm planning to use my favorites from the last 4 or 5 DS fabric collections. I might still have to buy 2 or 3 from the next line so there won't be duplicates within a block. I'm planning to make a queen. No bets how long it will take to finish :)

  9. I love texty prints. This will be wonderful, although I'd be afraid of the curves.....
    Looking forward to seeing more ; )

  10. Love this pattern. I have some Liberty prints I am trying to find a pattern for... maybe this is it! I have heard that it is technically quit challenging, is that right?

  12. Love the scrappiness of this, and I agree about the in between part, but the payoff at the end will be amazing! Have fun with it!

  13. I love the way your quilts always have slightly different background colors (my newest favorite of yours is the trees quilt from the book). I have never seen the alphabet print before. Do you remember the name of that one?

  17. This will be awesome! The scrappiness is perfect! Mine was started in February of 2011, and I just finished it over the Christmas break. That's too long for a project to go on, but I'm very glad I did it! Have fun!

  19. *smile* New year I pulled my single girl rings (begun in 2011) and finished some blocks. I'm sure your're faster than me. I like your scrappy rings. Wished I was that clever. Maybe for a pillow? we'll see. I'm curious what it will look like, your scrappy single girl.

  20. Love your version of this quilt so much! The text-y backgrounds are going to be great! Wish I have the ambition to tackle this one--too much for my over-full plate right now. I will enjoy watching your progress though!
