The Gypsy Wife Quilt Progress

The Gypsy Wife Quilt pattern by Jen Kingwell

I’ve talked before about this pattern and I’m so thrilled to be working on it again!  I have decided to take a slightly new approach on blogging about my progress.  I’m going to take a bit more of a methodical route.  There are a lot of different blocks that go into this quilt so let’s take a look at how I’ve progressed.


Here are the blocks I have finished so far!  I’m finding these blocks are easy to squeeze into the few minutes of sewing time I try to find each day! I’m SO going to love this quilt!!!!  With each block I’m falling more and more and more in love with it!

  1. I love all of your fabrics! I was going to comment on the music note fabric, as well! I adore it! I am making a Gypsy Wife myself, and I think it's so fun to see how the fabrics change the look of the blocks! My star is quite different from yours, but I love them both! Good luck as you continue (I know I need it!).

  2. This quilt is on my to do list someday. Love it and your fabric choices are fabulous!
