WiP Wednesday {14}

It's WiP Wednesday time....

single girl progress.
Single Girl Support Group
After my fabric find over the weekend, I thought it was a sign that I should join the Single Girl Support Group.  So call me crazy, but I dove head first into yet another quilt along.  As of right now all the fabric is stacked, the templates are cut, and I have started tracing and cutting the pieces out.  It is actually really nice to have something to work on in the evenings that doesn't involve being behind the sewing machine (as if that is a bad thing). But twice last night I asked myself, What have you gotten yourself into?  Are you nuts? It is a little overwhelming, but it helps to know there are over 200 people in the quilt along going through the same thing.

Like I mentioned last week, I was having a hard time committing to a project because I was unsure if my partner would like my idea.  Her taste is a little outside my comfort zone.  So on Sunday I took the challenge head on and just decided to just go with it.  Let me tell you, I love it!  And I hope she does too, because I am going to have a hard time giving this project up.  I promise more pictures to come!

Don't Call Me Betsy's Sliced Coins Quilt Along
Somehow the weekly steps seemed to slip by me, so I played catch up with this quilt along last week.  In one afternoon I was almost able to complete the entire top, that was until I ran out of the Kona Med-Gray.  Ugh, hate when that happens!  But after a quick trip to a LQS, I got my hands on some more. Now the top is finished and the whole thing needs to be quilted.

  1. oh I can't wait to see everyone's single girl quilts. I wish I had time to join this one! And I seriously love your apron. I wish it was coming to my house, but I already got my package. I hope they do another round of sutk.

  2. I agree, it's nice to see so many other crazy people putting Single Girl quilts together along with us. Thank you again for sharing that quilt shop, I ordered some KJR for myself there, I'm excited for it to come in the mail!!! Your sliced coins top is looking fabulous, and so is that SUTK apron!!! Lucky partner :)

  3. Looking good. At least you cut into your Katie! My stack is waiting.

  4. Can't wait to see your sliced coins finished up! I'm not doing the Single Girl quilt-along....but I'm starting to regret it! It sounds like a lot of fun.
    The apron looks awesome too!

  5. I love the colors and fabrics you picked for your sliced coins quilt! So cute!!

  6. Can't wait to see your sliced coins top! I love that grey with the bright colors.

  7. All of your projects look awesome! I have the Single Girl pattern, but I know there is NO Way I will have time this year! I have loved watching everyone else's progress though...

  8. Oh I am drooling over all your projects! I think I may need to join in on that single girl quilt along too...

  9. Beautiful apron! Wow!
    And it will be fun to see your sliced coins quilt when it is done!

  10. I know, I love seeing all the Single Girl quilts in progress, especially since my SG quilt is already done! (And I will not be doing another one, thankyouverymuch.) I can just sit back and enjoy all of your progress. : )

    That apron looks super cute. In fact I almost think it should be a skirt or a dress or something, it's so cute!
