    Gypsy Wife - a few blocks

    This is a good stash raider pattern, too! I decided on a more subtle color-way.
    First is the Pershing block - using the PP template mine was 1/2 too small! So I added a 1/4" border around it. The 2nd is the blocks from Section 1. Fun to do and glad I'm using a paper piecing method!

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    very nice blocks so far
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    They look great. Did you turn the 1st one into a hot pad since it was too small?

    What are the sizes....great looking......this pattern seems like the greatest scrap buster.....so tempted to just make one of whatever kind of block, whatever size, then put together however, using whatever......and a quilt is born!

    you are pp most...does the pattern have the blocks in pp form, or did you have to draft yourself?

    Kitsie, I just bought this pattern and see you have started several threads on your process. Thanks so much for sharing your blocks, etc. I am trying to figure out what colors/fabrics to use. I just showed my 16 yo GD the pattern and her comment was..."there's a lot going on there". I agree, and I don't want mine to be all over the place either.
    Don't worry spider.
