Three Single Girls

A

Here we are – three girls from the shop, cutting out our single girl pieces. It was an evening filled with rotary cutters, a lot of giggling and too many cookies. Dana is making her single girl in what she calls “creamies” along with mustard and navy prints. Megan is making her single girl out of deep purples, navy and a few spots of green. Here they are after getting a bit punchy with too much cutting.

We had so much fun! I even pieced a few of the first arc…

For more single girl fun, go here.

First Finish of 2011 – Goldenrod & Double Gauze

Here she is!  I’m happy that I did finish this quilt and had so much fun doing it!  The circles are raw-edge applique from double gauze, and the smaller circles are the tiniest of yo-yo’s, scattered about and slip stitched on by hand.  Here it is a bit more close up.

The goldenrod yellow is completely straight-lined quilted.  This took some extra patience, but so worth it to me in the end.  I really like all those lines.

So, now that I have this little number under my belt, I have got to get back to my older WIP’s!!  More posts on that later.

Also, have you heard about the Single Girl Quilt Along????  I’m joining in….are you??

It is the only quilt I am letting myself begin before all my previous quilts are finished.  Why make this quilt now?  I have always always wanted to make this quilt, but felt intimidated by 31 tiny templates(ACK! Really?  31?) as well as curved piecing.  But armed with my other quilting peeps and a bunch of other girls at the shop, I know I can do it!  I think I can….I think I can….
