    Lovely quilt! This might be a good way to use up some orphan blocks too, rather than follow the pattern exactly.

    This quilt is delightful? The eclectic placement of all the blocks gives the quilt a free-sprited air.

    My next one Dunster will definitely have some orphan blocks. I have lots of those also. Thanks y'all for all the compliments. It's the first quilt I have ever made that once I finished, I wanted to immediately start another one.

    Love it! And it's nice to read that it "took off" for you. Your enthusiasm shows in the finished quilt.

    Great finish...fun colors. How did you decide to quilt it? I haven’t been able to decide how to quilt mine so it has just been folded up for a couple of months.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    The hard way. I stay out of the ditch so I top stitched to the left of each strip all the way up and down the quilt, avoiding the blocks. Then I went in and stitched the blocks any way that seemed appropriate to the block. It's a heavy quilt. My next one will be an all over stitch even though I like the effect of the quilting. It was a long laborious process. At the end of all the tugging and turning, the quilt lay flat. I then faced the quilt after stay stitching the ends. That's where the waves occured. But, my quilts are seldom laying flat. So it's all right.

    Your Gypsy Wife is beautiful and inspirational. You colors are gorgeous and it's awesome that it is from your stash.

    I have a Gypsy Wife in progress. Most of the blocks are made and 3 sections sewn together. This is the inspiration I needed today to keep going. I have 8 more blocks to make and running out of steam. Thank you Toverly!
