Gypsy Wife - Completed Flimsy

I love it.  I really, really love it.  I know one shouldn't be proud.  But I love it!  Here is the top (or flimsy) of my Gypsy Queen quilt by Jen Kingwell:


It really is a lot more vibrant that these photos indicate and I think that I have captured that in some of my 'favourite' blocks below:





This orange, brown and green block above, maybe my favourite block of all.  I reminds me of a sunflower!





All in all, it only took two weeks to sew up!  Whoosh, I don't mess about you know!  I have taken a class at my local quilt shop, and am now qualified to use their long-arm machine.  The plan is have horizontal lines running across the quilt, so I am hoping it will be quite simple for my first quilting project!  And yes.  I am hooked.  I am already one third the way through another one.  Totally different this time, a controlled background and colour scheme, here are a couple of pics.



Oh, and look what arrived in the mail yesterday from Black Rabbit Fabrics - I predict some more Peg Legs this weekend!

  2. I really love it too. I like all the variety and wish I could see it close up in real life. A work of art!
