This is what I decided to work on: I have made Kelsey a quilt for each of her college years. I plan on making one for her each year. She will leave college with 4 bed sized quilts. I have always wanted to make her a "Single Girl" quilt by Denyse Schmidt. I bought the pattern years ago but was to scared to try it. There are 31 pieces just in the circles, not counting background. If you want to have a twin size (and I do) that would mean 12 rings. 12 rings time 31 pieces =372 little pieces! AND it has curved piecing!
I happened to be wasting time on Flickr and came upon a Single Girl Support Group that was just starting up! I read that the cutting and tracing the templates was the hardest part. Well, I love that kinda work so I jumped in! I'm no fool though, I am making a test block before I get all excitied that I (Kelsey) will be the owner of a Single Girl Quilt!
I enjoyed making the templates. I got one Ring Quarter done. I am using all scraps on this block.
Here are my template pieces and fabric all organized and clipped together in case of a cat fit! I got great advice from the Support Group. Organization is very important!
Today I have Saturday Sewing at the church so I plan on getting some more work done on this block. I hope this takes my mind off of missing my sweet boy!
