WIP Wednesday - Single Girl blocks


I'm not sure if this is a WIP or a finish, because although it's not a quilt top yet it sure feels like I've crossed a finish line!  I first wrote about this quilt last October, so it's almost taken me a year to get these blocks done.  After I finished a quilt about two weeks ago, I decided to get serious about piecing the blocks.  I counted and realized I only had half done - a measly 8 blocks!  So I set a goal of doing four quarter blocks a day - one full ring - and I did it!  Now I have all 16 rings done, all Anna Maria Horner and low volume fabrics.
This is going to be a nice, big queen size quilt for our bed.  There's no way I could give this one away after all the time I've spent on it.  Right now I'm trying to decide whether to use cotton or wool batting.  Do I want a summer quilt or a winter one?
I don't usually make quilts with so much negative space, so I hope I love it once it's done.  If Jolene's is anything to judge by, I definitely will!
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This will be so fun to see finished! I love AMH fabrics, and every time I work with them, I get the sense that this woman really gets it on a deeper level, how to design fabrics that will make great quilts. I too have not yet done any quilts with a lot of negative space in them, which means that I'm also a little clueless as how to quilt so much open space. Congrats on your block finishes!

  7. It's going to be fabulous! Once you use wool batting, you might never go back to cotton. :-)

  11. It's going to be lovely, Ann. I've admired those quilts from a far, but don't think I have it in me at this point to make one. I look forward to seeing your finish.
