single girl {all finished}

My Single Girl is all finished and she is a beauty (in my humble "totally unbiased" opinion).
She is all I was hoping for and so much more. I absolutely love how scrappy and bright she is, and I simply can't get enough of all those low volume backgrounds (thanks for this genius idea Jolene).

As planned, I used this beautiful Sugar Hill flannel for the backing. It's pretty, and soft, and cozy - simply perfect. Now I want to use flannel backing for all my quilts.

From the moment I started making this quilt I knew I wanted to hand quilt it. And I did, yay! I used 2 strands of embroidery thread which worked really well and I ended up with these lovely chunky stitches.

I was a little stuck when it came to binding. I wanted something that would complement all the neutrals while at the same time not competing with the scrappy rings. So, I decided to go with this color weave in gray, I think it adds just the right finishing touch.

To sum it all up, this was not an easy quilt to make. There was a lot of template cutting, precise piecing, curve sewing, and of course hand quilting. But, I enjoyed making her more than I enjoyed working on any other quilt before. I think it's the combination of Denyse Schmidt, neutrals, bright scraps, and hand quilting that make me love this quilt so very much.

Finished size of this quilt is about 60" x 60" and I used Single Girl pattern by Denyse Schmidt.

Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me share this beauty with you. 

Wishing you all a very lovely day. Svetlana
