A touch of Black

Just a couple more Gypsy Wife blocks made today. I added a bit of black to the mix and I think it is just what I was looking for to make things pop. What do you think?

I hope to get a few more of these done tomorrow and then will be spending 4 days watching the grandkids while Mommy and Daddy are away. These two are the sweetest little ones but it is exhausting for Grammie and Paw Paw to keep up with them. Wish us luck!

Yes, the bits of black make the blocks pop and gives them interest. Your points are perfect. Hand or machine pieced? Enjoy the sweet 'lil ones.

Love the little bit of black in the blocks because it makes the other colours really shine!

Those babies are little puddins and I'm sure you and Paw Paw will have a wonderful time with them!

The black does add a bit of class to the blocks. Good thinking!
My only advise is, take a nap if they do. That may help you keep up with them. Have fun!

Gorgeous fabric choices. My June block didn't come at right around the middle square, but it's finished. I'm still working on the filler blocks.

What precious ones. I know just what you're saying. I have 2 of my 5 here every week for 2 days and when they leave I go to bed - lol. Beautiful blocks!

The black is a perfect addition. Enjoy the grandkids....maybe you can get caught up on your sleep when they go home!
