Same here, but I have heard of the Gypsy Wife and thought it interesting. After seeing Macybaby's it's a small world in progress, I'm anxious to try that.

Anael, are you PP your blocks?

Teen your fabric combos are so fresh looking!

I love Jen's patterns! I have Gypsy wife, it is right where I can see it as I finish just one more UFO.

Here is a picture of my Gypsy Wife before it was quilted. I plan on taking more pictures of it to show more of the detail.



I used all different fabrics for the strips, no repeats. I think the key to doing these quilts is a good design wall. They are not hard in the parts, but hard to keep it all organized while putting it together. I cut my strips and had them numbered, and then did all the blocks, and then put them all together.

I have always planned on doing another, and I think I'm going to go with dark shades for the strips and bright for the blocks.

My design wall is too small so I have to use my curtains No problems, I'm doing that all the time.
I copied the sections and keep track of what I did by crossing off the blocks. I will number the strips too, at least that's the plan. I still haven't decided how to tackle this one

More peeps and more awesome blocks, Anael....very cool...

jmoore & Karen....would love to see your GW. Kingwell patterns always intimidated me. But since finishing Sylvia Bridal Sampler, nothing intimidates me anymore. Lol. I've had the GW & Green Tea patterns for awhile so it was time to dive in...

lindaschipper.....I bought most of my striped fabric from LQS called The Cotton Gin in Redlands CA. Their store is bright and colorful. I think I have a yard of every polka dot they sell. Lol..

Cathy....gorgeous GW.... I can't tell with the lighting..... is that pink and browns?

Hahahaha Teen, Sylvia isn't the most complicated quilt but I'm happy you can't be scared off anymore

I still didn't get my Green Tea book. I already emailed the shop but they didn't reply yet.

Lol....My block yesterday had Y-seams and I just whipped it out.....lol...I remember waiting until almost the last on SBS to do the Y-seam blocks. And, for me, 6" blocks was intimidating enough. Learned so much and I'm grateful. You are making headway on GW so I suggest you just keep on going...besides.....I'm loving the colorway. GTSB book will be there when you are ready...

lindaschipper.....Here is the salvage info on that striped fabric you like. "A Wildflower Meadow #2964 by Jackie Robinson of Animas Quilts for Benartex LLC." Hope this helps.
