I finally succumbed a ordered the Single Girl quilt pattern from Cia's Pallette. I've been coveting it for a while now and I'm soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy to finally have a copy! However now it means selecting/collecting 36(!) fabrics to make it! I've been wanting to make a qult for our bed and this has been the pattern that's been in my head for a while. I'll machine peice this baby and then ahnd quilt it so I'll be at this one for a while, but I do love the look hand quilting gives.

Here are my collected fabrics so far....

I've had the Heather Ross russian dolls for a while with our bed quilt in mind. I'd really like them to be dominant in the quilt so I'll probably double up on those. I'm just not sure about the oranges or the mermaids, what do you think? Maybe I should seek out more browns and maybe a pinky/red colour to pick out the colour in the russian dolls?


  1. Hi!

    I love hand quilting. Learnt it in Japan when I was living there for 2 years. Now that I'm back in Singapore, I find so much difficulty looking for the quilting thread and other notions.
    Thank God I found many pretty cloths in Chinatown.
    Where do you get your fresh supplies of thread and all?


  2. I've been wanting this to! Isn't it just lovely? What great fabric you have so far.I think using some pinky/red will work beautifully. Depending on the size of the piece, you might not want to use the mermaid fabric. It might chop off a tail or her head if they are to small. I hope this helps!

  3. Can't wait to read more from you. Can't wait to see more of your work.

  4. Hi! Greetings from Finland! I love the fabrics! It must be very interesting to live in Singapore! Thank you for your blog! It's so nice to find other quilters from all around the world! :)
