Gypsy Wife quilted

Recommended Posts

This is Gypsy Wife, retitled "Gypsy Critters" by the maker. It was a BOM at the LQS and she used a lot of her own fabrics (that had all kinds of cartoon-y animals) combined with some from the packets that were given each month. There's a lot going on and it was built in segments with partial seams. There are pieced blocks of many different sizes and complexities, plus strata of vertical piecing that runs from top to bottom, interrupted by blocks but reappearing farther down. It is bright and "noisy".

And how to quilt it? She brought me a photo of a modern quilt with huge, close-together concentric circles. I don't have a computer and while a pattern board of circles would work, all the starts and stops would have pushed it way past her budget.

We opted for thin blending thread (gray) and she left it up to me--I liked the circle idea but not a million of them. Here's the link and a detail shot. She loved it. 

Thanks

Your work is always so amazing.  Your designs always seem to fit the quilt and the designs always quilted to perfection.

 

Thanks for being an inspiration to us all.
