WIP: More GW Blocks.
Sooo...I'm pretty sure March is going to kick my derriere, and it seemed prudent to get a head start on my Gypsy Wife blocks for March. Yesterday I made my Pershing block and one of the month's six filler blocks, and man, that Pershing block made me stop and think. Fabric choices, fabric placement, getting the corners lined up, trying not to stretch the triangles, eep! But I really like the way it turned out. I'm pretty sure it's my fave block so far! (Not that I have a huge bundle to choose from, but still.)
(Speaking of the Gypsy Wife quilt, if you're interested in a copy of the pattern, why not enter my giveaway contest? It ends this Friday.)
It's been a quiet quilty week here. Other than a start on my March GW blocks, I sewed up another strip for Anna's quilt. The gray is mostly Kona Coal, but I threw in a couple pieces of Kona Charcoal for funsies. Surprisingly, it showed up really well in this photograph, but the contrast isn't as bright in lesser light. The strip measures roughly 3" x 15". I've got a coral strip left, plus an additional section that I'm actually taking the time to draw up on graph paper. I know. Graph paper? That's just crazy talk coming from me. But the nebulous idea in my head should probably be committed to paper before I start blindly cutting.
It's not much, but it's this week's product! What have you been up to? I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!
