April GW Blocks.
There was a brief moment this month when I looked at my copy of the Gypsy Wife pattern and thought, "Meh. I totally don't want to make these blocks this month." Because it's only APRIL, and the QAL goes through DECEMBER, I figured I better suck it up and get some work done. And I really am thankful I got them done.
I love that heart block, but I think my absolute favorite is the Courthouse Step block in the lower left. I picked the center based on scraps I had and cut logs around it, and it's wild. It's full of pattern. It doesn't afford the eye a place to rest. But I wish the whole quilt was exactly like it. Though I will admit I have a soft spot for the CS block in the top middle. I had to sneak in some Tula (Topiary from Parisville) and while it's much more subtle than my fave, I love it anyway.
And these are all of my blocks so far. It's a chaotic mess, but I think (or rather, I'm hoping and praying) that it will all come together in the end. It will, right? Seeing them all together, that orange block still really bothers me. I think that bad boy is getting a new set of corners...maybe next month?
