I’m not a single girl and haven’t been for awhile now but I fell in love with Denyse Schmidt’s Single Girl Pattern shortly after I started quilting. I spent over a year collecting fabrics but when I finally got to sew it together it looked horrible! I tried to just live it with it and finish it but the Single Girl Support Group was the kick in the pants I needed to pull out the seam ripper and take this quilt top from this
Back down to arcs and then reassembled to this
See how much flatter it lays now? Instead of using the edge as a guide for my stiches I drew a 1/2 in seam allowance and then stiched along that resulting in a much better fit between the blocks that form the rings.
I have 11 of of the 12 rings assembled so now I just need to reassemble the rows. It was a lot of work but it will be much easier to quilt now and I feel much happier with how it is coming together. For a quilt that takes so much time I definitely want to love it when it is done!
