More Gypsy Wife

Well, we survived our time with the grandkids and after a day of rest I got back to the Gypsy Wife. I love sewing these blocks but fabric selection is something of a challenge. I decided that my first few blocks were looking a bit controlled so I am trying to go a bit more random with these next ones.

I found the fabric selection especially difficult in these Old Maids Puzzle blocks.

I also spent some time cutting some of the strips that are used to set it all together. I love how they look together so hopefully that will translate to the finished quilt.

And here are all the blocks so far. I am really missing my design wall!

As a grandmom I can understand why some rest was needed afterwards ! :)

These are looking great! The hardest thing for me is color, believe it or not. I can see glass but not fabric. You'll have this done in no time!

These blocks are looking fabulous. I agree with Carla - you've nailed the combination on the pink X block.
