Please pass the Catch-up

Just a quick post to catch you all up with my quilting projects and share my newest quilt-along.   I expect everyone is tired to death of hearing about my experiences with the Splendid Sampler, so I am not going to say much about it, just that these are the most recent blocks completed. I am still making two sets, 1 for “Stefanie’s Splendid Sampler” and 1 “Just for Jessica”. I still don’t have a layout planned for the blocks, but ideas are churning away in my mind. Stay tuned…

And, now its all about my newest Quilt-Along for 2016 – The Gypsy Wife.  This is an amazing quilt and its been a long time since I was so excited to be pulling fabrics and piecing blocks.  The pattern comes in a 29 page booklet!!! OMG…There are nine multiple block sections. Actually its not difficult, its just a bit convoluted, because of the way the pattern is set out, versus the way I’m putting everything together. Here is what it should look like when its done.

My apologies to the amazing quilt artist who pieced this, its beautiful, but I cannot locate my source. I promise to give proper credit when I find it.

My fabulous quilt-along blog host is linked here.  Her site is called Splish Splash Stash. Go check it out if you are inclined to.  Its a great place to visit, with some fabulous links and how-to’s.

My Gypsy Wife goes together in sections. To date, I have Section 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 finished.  See…

Today, there is a huge winter storm brewing on PEI, so my plan is to finish Section 7 if all goes well (Section 7 falls directly below all these sections and when its done, I’ll be able to see the whole length together), then on to Section 6, 8 and 9.  Yippee, Hooray, the plan is coming together.

Today is a great day to have an insanely creative day.  Enjoy.

  1. I purchased the Gypsy Wife Quilt book a couple of weeks ago. Can’t wait to join the quilt along. I’ll be a couple of months behind but look forward to creating a beautiful quilt. Thanks for posting.
