Single Girl Quilt Along!

I've been admiring the gorgeous Single Girl quilts (a quilt pattern by the amazing Denyse Schmidt) on flickr for a while now...
like this beauty using the highly coveted Flea Market Fancy collection
this one in Anna Maria Horner's lovely Garden Party
and the darling original by Denyse.
Just too much yumminess for me to resist any longer!

I decided to do it with friends, my OKC Modern Quilt gals, as a quilt along to help me keep on truckin' once I get started. And because I haven't sewn curves much at all, nor have I worked from a quilt pattern before, I thought the collective wisdom of the group would be helpful and fun : )

It's almost time to get started...yay! I have my fabrics ready...that was a pretty big step since we need 31 (or 36) different prints. Next week we'll start cutting and see how far we get. There will be no deadlines, we'll just work at our own pace so don't worry if you don't have a pattern or fabrics yet. If you're in OKC check with Quiltworks for a pattern...Verlinda just ordered some for us for those who still need it. Any questions?

Have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend!
