Single Girl Quilt... DONE!!!
I had it long arm quilted by Laura and I AM IN LOVE!!! It's beyond beautiful and better than what I thought it'd looked like. You'll have to excuse the odd light... our bedroom gets pretty much NO light and the bulbs are yellow. Boo. Anyway, I went with a baptist fan pattern because I didn't want to distract from the rings too much. So happy with my choice!
(Please ignore the headboard-less-ness... we haven't gotten round to choosing one)
The binding is Kona Coal, just like the background, because I didn't want to take away from the rings. So it kind of looks like the rings are just 'floating' there without a frame.
I highly recommend this pattern as a long term project. Do a little here and there, and it'll be done in no time. Mine would've been finished a lot sooner had I not left it on my shelf for months on end. Thank goodness I worked on mine with Shannon because I don't know if I'd finish at all otherwise. So that's another tip... maybe work on it with a friend, if only just to keep each other on track.
Speaking of Shannon, look at hers!!! She very unselfishly gifted it to her friend as a wedding gift (hmm there's something ironic about a Single Girl quilt as a wedding gift lol). The quilting is spectacular and I honestly am in awe. LOVE!! :)
