I tried to hold out, I really did. I told myself I didn't need a QAL this year, I have enough going on with two very different bees and the other projects I need to finish. I also have a couple of non-quilting, non-crafty projects that will be soaking up a substantial amount of time this year. (More on those soon.)
But even with all of the very good reasons why I shouldn't start another complicated quilt, I couldn't help myself. This morning, I bought Jen Kingwell's Gypsy Wife quilt pattern, which I have been ogling since I first saw it on Lily's Quilts several months ago.
I'll be making mine with AMH fabrics because the moment I saw this quilt, I knew I wanted to make it with AMH. (I'm using my fave prints from Dowry and the entire True Colors collection. Fat Eighths, I love you.) And I am super duper excited, even if I do not have time for this. At all. I will be sort of participating in the QAL, but I told myself that I don't have to finish it with everyone else. I want to really enjoy the making of this quilt instead of trying to fly through it.
So let's talk. Are any of y'all joining in the Gypsy Wife? What fabrics are you using? Are you participating in the QAL?
