Here it finally is, my Single Girl quilt! It has been finished for a couple of weeks or so now.
I loved making this quilt, and I truly enjoyed every step of the process. The actual pattern is fantastic, it is really not as hard as you might think. Time consuming, yes. But not that difficult. Once you get used to sewing the small pieces together, it isn't so bad. As for the big curves, they are pretty easy too. My recommendation? Use lots of pins!
I decided to go for a solid for the backing. I love the simplicity of it. For the binding, Aneela's dark pink square dot is perfect. I adore that print. It is such a fun spin on the polka dot, and I have them in every colorway. It is my new favorite. And I didn't really mean for it to be so super girly and pink, by the way. I just couldn't help myself. After having two boys, the pink is very welcome.
fabric: Sherbet Pips by Aneela Hoey, Moda Bella Solid in gray, and Kaufman Kona in medium pink
pattern: Single Girl by Denyse Schmidt
quilting: straight line quilting by me (1" apart)
Though I've been snuggling up with this quilt on these cool spring nights (you know, just a little test run, right??), it is destined for Finley's big girl bed. Yep, that won't be for a couple years, I know. It will be broken in nicely by then. :)
