Gypsy Wife Section 8

Hi everyone!
How are you getting on with your Gypsy Wife??
I have finished section 7 but I still have quite a bit to do on section 6 so I am relieved to see that section 8 is quite a small section!

Three big blocks, a square in square and some strips - entirely doable! I started with From the Heart. Last time I made this block I felt the shape got lost a little bit because of my fabric choices, so this time I have kept it quite simple and gone for high contrast light and dark.

If you have just discovered this quilt along - welcome! Don't worry if you are ahead or behind, its a go-at-your-own-pace kind of affair. Check out Hydeeann's blog for lots of tips and her really useful spreadsheet which will help you keep on top of all those strips and pieces!

Happy sewing everyone. I hope that I can report that I have finished section 6 next month (fingers crossed!)


  1. Looking good! I have checked out your finished quilts page and must say I love the range of designs you've created!

  2. I want to thank you for continuing to do this! I am finally picking the quilt along back up (currently on last block for section 2). I am not going to lie, I am hating the booklet! It doesn't list what size block is for which section and whatnot. I know I will be making educated guesses in the future (beginning with section 5) and that bothers me a lot! It eases me a little bit know this is still going on. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

  3. Wonderful contrast! THe shape is crisp and clear.
