Denyse Schmidt's Single Girl quilt has been on my bucket list ever since it first debuted. The curves always intimidated me, so it kept moving to the bottom of my to-do list. When I finally got comfortable with curves while sewing the Glam Clam Quilt, I had more confidence to tackle this project.
I pulled together an assorted rainbow of prints and paired them with a Moda Bella Solid grey. The biggest timesaver for this project was purchasing a set of template plastics from Custom Plastics on Etsy. These templates made the cutting process so simple and were worth the money.
I pieced this top during the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild retreat in January. It was super tedious to piece each block and I was thankful for the great company because it helped me to plow through the task at hand!
At the end of the retreat, I sent it home with Kathy Koch of Threadbear Quilting for longarm quilting. She is so great to work with and ended up creating a custom quilting pattern based on the hand quilting template included in the Single Girl pattern. When I first saw the finished quilting I was in shock at how amazing it looked.
My favorite detail on the quilt is the navy architextures text print on the binding. Koko also approves!
This quilt is happily living in our guest room on this vintage bed frame my mom found while thrifting. It's so nice to be able to display these large scale quilts in our home.
