Single Girl Quilt Planning

This will probably be the first of many posts about this quilt.  Something tells me this will be a long work-in-progress.  I'm planning the king-size version - that's 620 pieces to cut! I'm hoping to have it completed by the end of the summer; just in time for me to throw over my bed for next winter.
I have over 70 prints of Anna Maria Horner's various lines that I have been hoarding collecting for several years.  I love everything she creates.  Last night I had a dream that Anna Maria came to my house to help me organize my sewing area.  She was a little taken aback at how big a job it was.  Even my subconscious is telling me to stop hoarding fabric!  What better way to showcase all these AMH prints than in the Single Girl Quilt.
For anyone who has made this quilt, can you please share your tips/knowledge?  What things do you wish you had known about this quilt (construction, etc) when you first started? 
P.S. Sharing this post with Freshly Pieced and My Quilt Infatuation this week.


  1. somehow king size quilts usually do take awhile to complete - love the pattern

  2. I haven't tackled this pattern yet, but I'm sure you won't have any problems. It's going to look great with all those AMH prints. What color will you be using for background?

  3. What a fabulous dream :-) I haven't braved this pattern yet, but yours is sure to be amazing with all that AMH goodness...

  4. WOW, this is going to be amazing!! I have just started a small pile of AMH prints, and have no idea what to do with it. I am SO looking forward to seeing how this turns out!!

  5. Hello Stephanie,
    What a lovely colourful project... I hope all goes well and it is finished in time for next winter.
    Love, Muv

  6. Look at that amazing stack of AMH prints - gorgeous! I would love to have a go at the Single Girl quilt, just nervous of all those curves!


I love hearing from my readers - thanks for leaving a comment!
