One of 100 Days of Modern Quilts

I'm trying to make a better effort to post a blog entry at least once a week.  Not much going on this week behind the sewing machine... or at least that is ready to be blogged about. 
In other news... To my shock and surprise Alissa Haight Carlton of handmadebyalissa contacted me regarding one of my quilts.  She was asking to feature my Single Girl quilt during the 100 Days of Modern Quilts - Week of Participation at The Modern Quilt Guild.  I was so honored, of course I said Yes!  Quite some time ago I took part in my first Quilt Along for Single Girl, a pattern by Denyse Schmidt.  It was a quilt I had wanted to make and finding the Single Girl Support Group in Flickr gave me the boost I needed.  You can see my finished quilt below and read a little more about my experience here.  Please make sure you check out all the other awesome featured quilts at MQG, they are so inspiring! 

There are 16 rings total, the top row is hanging over the fence.

A close up of the bubble quilting*... yum!

One lone aqua ring... love the pop of color.

*The quilting on this quit is one of my favorite parts about it.  My best friend Monica quilted it.  I'm so lucky to have her... she did a magnificent job and it was exactly as I had imagined it.  You can see more of Monica's lovely work at her blog.

  1. I have admired this quilt for a long's so creative with the use of color!! I love the bubble quilting, too! I used that same technique with mine and can't wait to make a bigger Single Girl soon :o) Glad I found your blog!
