Single Girl is Done

She is long and skinny and only consists of three blocks because she needs to hang on my wall above a long lounge.
Instead of going for the same dotty red for the border, I chose a smaller white dot on red instead.
At this stage I have no idea how she will be quilted, still ruminating that one!
I am happy with her though.
You can see other beautiful single girls on flickr. xo

It's wonderful Cathy, I like the idea of making it to fit the space. I also love mixing up the scale of dots. I bet it'll be fabulous when you've quilted it.

This is so lovely...I want to find the pattern and go for it. It looks like a great way to use up some little scraps I've been saving! I love the dotty background...adds a lot of character and fun!

In stitches,

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

Oh Cathy! It's wonderful! I love your choice for the border...perfect! You've inspired me again! I wish it wasn't bed time because now I feel like sewing. :D

Jean said...

I too like your color choice of the white dots.
I was thinking that it seems only right that it needs to be quilted using "circles" of some sort? It sure is cute and bright!
