Pins

What I will remember about making my Single Girl Quilt
I think this is what I will remember the most about making my Single Girl quilt.
I've been repeating the process of pinning and stitching all weekend.
Pinning the Single Girl Arcs
And I'm this close to having a finished quilt top!
Just a few more borders to stitch.

Oh wow! That's a lot of pinning, but I KNOW that it will be amazing when we get to see it all together!

Hang in there and good luck with that! I can't wait to see your quilt finished! I think one of my first posts on my blog was a Single Girl quilt - if you want to check it out, it may give you that last push of inspiration you need.

The pins in the lighting look like Christmas balls. I am impressed with everyone doing the single girl quilt. Great job!

I love those pins! I've never pinned as much as I have for that quilt. It is time consuming, but so worth it! Makes those curves so easy to sew. :)

The Aussie woman who taught me to quilt always said, "Pin, pin, pin and more pins!" She would love this! Can't wait to see your finished top!

Wow what great photographs...who knew pins in a quilt could be so pretty :o) As a side note this makes me wonder if I pin incorrectly...my pins face the opposit direction. Maybe this is the reason my edges don't always line up very well after they have been sewn together?

Blue.Ridge.Girl - Hmmm... I wasn't aware there was a correct way to pin? I just have always done mine that way and it works out well because I like to take them out with my right hand while sewing.
I think you should just put your pins in whatever way you like! Maybe you could try putting them in a different way and seeing if you like the results. ;) ~Jessica

your Pin pics are a lovely evidence of devotion to beautiful productions.

Have you ever tried glueing your curved edges instead of pins? I recently did a pickledish block, used glue and it worked so great! I was pleased.
