gypsy wife WiP

trying not to overthink any of these darling little blocks
but the teal triangles in this one constantly annoyed me,
so I unpicked & reset them!

ha-ha, these little blocks are so addictive ... if only I didn't have anything else to do!

a bit more #11
I have been thinking about the name - Gypsy Wife quilt - as I've been sewing.
It seems like maybe the concentrated cluster of blocks over the top part of it
are a lovely colourful shawl

and the long thin strips are the fringing!


  1. Wow, you're making speedy progress. I don't know about the Gypsy Wife name but I do like the long 'fringe' parts - I like the way you have described it.

  2. You could be right about the shawl idea. I always think of gypsy things as bold patterns, rich bright colours and clashing (not coordinated).
