My friend Shannon and I decided last year that we're going to tackle the Single Girl quilt together. I've had my copy of the pattern even before I started selling them in my Etsy shop, so I thought it was about bloody time I actually make one.
This is Shannon's pile of gorgeousness. I think it's a pile Denyse herself would be proud of. She's selflessly making it as a wedding gift to a friend. I told her she'd better like her friend lots, because giving this up is going to be preeeetty tough!
Me? I'm not that big a person so I'm making one for moi! Err and the hubs gets to share it, I guess. But it'll mostly be on my side of the bed. Heehee.
fabric that Denyse gave me from her first line by Fabric Traditions with Kona Snow, but at the very last minute, I changed my mind. Not just because I'm a mega dork, but I realised that Hope Valley would probably work better since it had much smaller prints.
(Apologies for the shoddy pictures of my fabric picks... by the time we confirmed both our fabric placements, the sun had decided to go nighty night. Bleurgh.)
So I'm finally using some of my Hope Valley stash, with Kona Coal as the background. I threw in a few Konas I had in my stash to fill in the blanks, but I have no idea what they are hehe
Anyway, I don't know how long this is going to take me, but it's going to be my selfish project for the year. After I toyed with the idea of not doing custom quilts for a while, I was suddenly inundated with many, many requests. But I'm going to go at a slower pace lest I burn out, and having something to work on that's for me is going to be a good thing, I think.
