I had ambitions of making a few of these for Christmas gifts… but with writing deadlines and preparing to leave for Thailand in 2 weeks (yikes! actually, it’s only 13 days left!), well, I’ll have to save this for next year.
I love it and it was easy-peasy to make!
I used one of my favorite Amy Butler “Midwest Mod” fabrics for the lining:
I haven’t used it yet. Guess I’m being a bit too precious. :$
So when waiting for love to knock on a girl’s door, what to do?
Why quilt of course!!
I finally found a pattern for the charcoal stash of fabric I started collecting in the summer. I’m very excited about this! I wanted something fresh but with a scrappy feel. Scrappy quilts are my absolute favorite, and way back when I thought I’d do a scrappy nine-patch for my bed.
But then I found this at The Workroom (my fav hang out these days. I know, not so good for meeting men.)
"Single Girl" quilt pattern by Denyse Schmidt
And here is a reminder of the fabric stash I’m going to use (I’ve added about 20+ more fat quarters to it since taking the photo. Lots of blacks, whites, greys, a few more hits of teal, etc.):
This is my bedding, and if it all comes together, I think the “Single Girl” quilt using my grey stash will be a fantastic compliment to my room. Fingers crossed!
I’ve read the pattern, and this promises to be the most complicated quilt project I’ve taken on to date!
Wish me luck!
