Have I mentioned how much fun I had making my Single Girl Mini Quilt with the Single Girl Support Group on Flickr??? Oh yes, probably at least a thousand times right ;D
It makes me really sad when I hear people say that they hate sewing their quilt tops, that they just like the finished product. For me, its all about the process.
I just love fussy cutting the fabrics, making the arcs, and sewing the curves for this pattern...sigh. I wonder how many more of these Single Girls I'll make? Fun, fun!
Earlier this spring I won a little giveaway over at Kerri's blog Lovely Little Handmades, which included a fat quarter of Rabbits Trellis and Lambs in Park from Laurie Wisbrun's Etsy Shop Scarlet Fig. Thanks Kerri! When I opened Kerri's package I was thrilled with the gorgeous colors of these fabrics! Poking around in my stash I found a couple of Ann Kelle and Saffron Craig prints that looked lovely paired with them and then I thought to myself, "Self, these would be so sweet made up as a Single Girl baby quilt for your soon-expected Niece Brooke!" Off to Kerri's Etsy Shop Sew Deerly Loved to find some more fabrics for the arcs and let's just say she has no shortage of inspiring fabrics and I ended up with more than I actually needed, ha ha. Using my Kona color chart (only the best thing ever!) I decided to go with PFD White for the background.
To pin or not to pin was the question with these curves...ultimately I ended up going with pinning. I must be odd (or a perfectionist, ha ha) because I actually enjoyed pinning these.
Quarter 1 of my rings are almost complete and don't they look sweet? Now I just need to get working on those other three quarters so that I might get this finished before Brooke's birth day. (Not likely since she should be arriving in the next couple of weeks, but a little motivation never hurts now does it?)
