single girl progress


I can't even believe that all nine blocks for my Single Girl quilt are pieced and trimmed ( I could only fit 6 of them on my design wall as these blocks are ginormous). I'm doing a 3 x 3 blocks layout, so my quilt will measure about 60" x 60".


I love working on this quilt so very much, I even have fabric for the backing all ready to go. I got this gorgeous and amazingly soft Tanya Whelan Sugar Hill flannel from here. Isn't it beautiful? I think it will be a perfect match for my happy, bright, and colorful single girls.


And, I'm going all out and hand quilting this puppy. I'm in no hurry to get it finished any time soon, so slow and relaxing hand quilting sounds very appealing.

Of course, I will still have to decide on the binding, but I have plenty of time for that.

What have you been up to? Do tell. Svetlana

  1. Oohh its so lovely, you've inspired me to dig out my unfinished single girl quilt top and get it finished! It's so big ive put off basting it for 6 months! Its all my precious liberty scraps so i've no idea how this project ended up as a ufo! Time to do something about it, thanks for reminding me of it! Ps i wish i'd thought of scrappy backgrounds, looks amazing!

  10. It is looking gorgeous, I almost tempted to to make one apart from the fact I hate sewing curves ;-)

  12. Single Girl was one of my favorite quilts to make. Once you get past cutting out all those pieces it goes together fairly quickly! Yours is wonderful! I love the idea of mixing up the background rather than using a solid background. Fantastic!

  14. I am reading 5 posts together, so sorry to be so behind. I love your circular quilting on your quilt. The heart pillow is wonderful, I am rather smitten by all the different valentines projects this year. And the fabric on the back of that pillow is the best. These scrappy single girl blocks are great fun, they will make a wonderful quilt. It is quite lovely to see all this inspiration all at once but keeping up with you is better and hopefully I will have more time now.
