Inspired by the progress being made by members of the "Single Girl Support Group"I have decided to start a single girl quilt of my own. I don't plan to formally join the group, since the warning that it is for "serious single girl quilters only" made me feel a little unwelcome. Work is likely to get in the way of me keeping up, and I am already a long way behind schedule. Anyhow, I am planning to make a queen sized quilt for our bed out of red and white fabrics leftover from another quilt I made a few years ago, along with some other cute red and white prints that I haven't been able to resist buying. The background will be natural linen which I have ordered from the US, and hope will arrive this week.
After all that marking and cutting, and a walk through a sunny (if somewhat chilly) Wigan, Mr Q and I settled down to scones, jam, cream and tea/cappuccino in front of the fire. Pure bliss.
