Traced templates

Traced templates, originally uploaded by cidellsews.

I mentioned in my last post that this is my first time quilting using templates. I’ve always been a big fan of stripping (chortle). So, for this one, I had some quilting template at the house from a bag project.

Since I am primarily a garment sewist I was searching for as much info I could about the Single Girl Quilt and there just wasn’t that much out there. So, I’m going to blog ad nauseum about my project.

The pattern comes with the 1/4 inch seam allowance added. So, I just traced with a super fine point Sharpie. That being said, I got about 1/3 of the way through tracing the approximately 40 pieces because I ran out of template plastic.

There are a slew of coupons from the Big Box Store. So, I’ll try to get down before the weekend and pick up three more sheets so I can at least finish piecing one square.
