Single Girls Unite!!

I have loved the Single Girl quilt pattern by Denyse Schmidt from a distance for a very long time.  I put it off because it involved templates and curved piecing.  Leave it to Katie, Megan and Nova to encourage me to buy the pattern and give it a go.  These three ladies have put together a support group for this pattern. Everyday someone is adding another fantastic version.  It was just the kick in the booty I need to go ahead and buy the pattern and try it.  The Single Girl flickr group is 238 members strong (and counting).  

I'm using my favorites prints from City Weekend by Liesl Gibson for Olive & S.  I adore this color combination.  It feels so fresh and vibrant.

  5. You've gone quilt-a-long-crazy! That color palette is great. Are you using white background? That tiny blue polkadot would also be a lovely background (as it is to your blog!)

    I was tempted by the pickledish quiltalong a few months back but didn't get my stuff together. I'm not sure it's the traditional pattern, but they used a geometry/vibe similar to the single girl, with a double ring.

  7. I love these colors together, too! I have not seen this line...so I'm glad I did! I'm seriously considering making SG for myself, but I am so inexperienced! Still thinking of it, but loving checking out everyone else's!

  17. You know I want whole lines of many different fabric lines, right? The colors in this line are great! I have a few of them, especially the dots. Can't wait to see your progress. I hope this comment allows you to reply!

  18. Totally behind on this, but I've been putting it off too! I think I'm daunted by the 30+ different fabrics I have to choose. But, it looks like you are using fewer than 30 (32? 35?) - Did you just repeat a fabric more than once? What was your method? And how's it coming along?? :)
