A new Single Girl quilt in progress

Hello there everybody. I am back from a rather wonderful holiday in the warm sun (sorry about that...) and just got right back into teaching at the Village Haberdashery yesterday and working on a customer commission.

A while back a former student of mine asked me to make here a 'Single Girl' Quilt for her little daughter. And I was so happy to have been asked because this quilt pattern is one of my all time favorites. I have made two of them over the past years (here and here) and love both dearly. Sonya, my customer, was very taken with my originals and also wanted an all solids quilt but with a fresher background colour.

We collaborated on the set of colours to be used and decided on a rainbow style colour set but without any pinks and the background colour is the wonderful grey/blue Kona slate. 

From my previous versions of the quilt I still have the plastic templates but this is still a quilt that demands patience and one where all the cutting is done using scissors rather than a rotary cutter. Still, I love the process and that is all that counts right now.

Keep you posted
