the single girl.

I LOVE this pattern and have for a very long time.

 

 

There’s a lot to love–the traditional reference, the Denyse flavor, the shout-out to the single girl…

 

and it also just looks cool.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SO, it was with great pleasure that I ran into it at a quilt shop recently, and I’m thrilled to get started. I’ve decided to bypass the tedious-ness of cutting out the 30+ different shaped pieces and am instead paper-piecing this bad boy. That way I can a) be lazy with the cutting b) pick fabric as I go (and on the fly, my fave), and c) jump into this project a whole lot faster than I would be able to otherwise. But to each his own in terms of technique.

So here are my first ring-lets! My approach is the more the merrier in terms of color and print. Reproductions, kaffes, shirtings, and whatever else are all fair game. My hypothesis is that the single girl will allow for a lot of variety and still look cool so long as you pick a nice fabric for the background. We’ll see…

 

Right on Denyse.
