Single Girl Quilt

I've had the pattern to make the Single Girl quilt for over a year now. I've seen several made, and they are all just beautiful. Jenn showed me the one she started, and I loved it.

There is a group starting up to do a quilt along, and they'll have pictures and help for all of us who don't know how to sew a curved seam *raises hand* This should be perfect for me.
I pulled the fabrics I want to use, all from my stash. And of course they'll be blue and green. My favorite combination. It should be lots of fun.
My husband insisted we go on a drive this morning to get out of the house. We all kind of drug our feet, but once we got to Sauvie Island, we were all wide eyed and loving it. There were birds everywhere. My new camera with the zoom lens caught this big bald eagle in a tall tree, look at how pretty he is! I love it here.
These horses were pretty too, they scared that huge flock of geese up into the air. It was a perfect morning to go for a drive. Thanks Mark :)

I like this batch that you have gathered for the new quilt. I have a bunch put aside in a bag for some unknown-to-me-yet project, that looked like that would work perfectly with what you've put together.

Just observing, the navy print in front may be hard to use. Your eye will be drawn to it every time you look at your circles, so you will probably want to be careful where you place it. I hope this doesn't sound like criticism to you.......just trying to be an extra set of eyes !

What color will your background be? White?

It'll be fun to watch this one develop. Have a ball !

And totally distracted by the fabric (happens often that way around here), I forgot to comment on your photos.

WOW ! Really great !

I'd have to blow up that eagle shot and frame it. OUTSTANDING !

I can't wait to see your progress on your SG quilt. Your color theme is wonderful. I wanted to do make the single girl quilt too... maybe I'll still do it, just not in a group.
