Slowly but surely, I gathered my fabrics for my "Single Girl Quilt," I bought some Kaffe Fassett, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman's Metro Living fabrics. I added a couple of Heather Ross Mendocino from my "precious stash" section, and a splash of forgotten scraps. They all seemed to work well together.
Katy said that the cutting of the ring pieces was the most tedious part of the whole project, and I'm glad it wasn't too bad for me. It took me two mornings to finish cutting the pieces for the twelve rings for a twin size quilt. Why a twin size? Well, in this house, at least three people want to cuddle up under the same quilt, sometimes four if the mama is there already.
After petting each fabric and preparing it to be cut, I imagined the other hundred possibilities for each of them. It took me two whole school mornings, two movies, and one documentary. Consequently, I found solace in my own thoughts, plans, and memories: the perfect sound of the rotary cutter, and the snip-snip ot the scissors are such pleasant sound. The idea of taking such a pretty quilt out of the dryer for the first time, and spreading it on a freshly made bed makes my heart feel elated... you get the picture, right?
I finished the first task of this quilt along. I'll be working on it at the schedule pace, which I think was perfectly planned to fit the making of this quilt in 'real life time.'
Here it is, waiting for tomorrow's post, while I wait for the snow to stop, and for Spring to come.
