new quilt project

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.)

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!

Yikes.

Wish me luck!
