Each ring of "The Single Girl" pattern is composed of 31 different fabrics and they are each a slightly different shape. Templates are a must. I made polycarbonate templates when I cut out Anna and Matty's quilt because I knew I would want to make the pattern again. The large scale fabrics required a little fussy cutting.
When one is using this many different fabrics, a plot is a good idea.
Each row represents a quarter of the ring. Different scales, directional fabrics, and different color combinations make the rings so much richer visually.
The first ring is completed.
I've had to make a slight change in the composition after a brief discussion with Jim. Apparently, the aspect of his old quilt that most exemplifies its woobie-ness, is the flannel back. So the brown and cream fabric is out and a soft, golden colored flannel is in as backing fabric.
