Gypsy Wife March + Fussy Cut Swap

by Julie Hirt

Here are my March blocks for the Gypsy Wife Quilt Along.

I’m forcing myself to work strictly from my scraps (I need a reason to keep them), so it’s pretty hodgepodge.

A little rant…  If I’m going to be honest, I have to say this quilt pattern is kicking my ass.   The block sizes are for ‘finished’ blocks, which I could care less about.  I really need to know the size the blocks should be when I’m making them.  After it’s all put together, I don’t really care what size they are (finished).  The pattern seems to jump all around and I just can’t follow it very well. Hmph.

That being said, I think it’s totally worth doing because the end result looks insanely awesome.  I’m sure other people can follow this pattern perfectly; my brain just doesn’t mesh with this one.  I will say, it’s definitely making me think.

The Pershing block may be my favorite so far.  It was really fun picking out the fabrics.

 

Fussy Cut!  I love this swap.  It’s hosted with Amanda at What the Bobbin and I believe it will be an ongoing monthly swap with different themes.

The theme was woodland. I may have missed the mark a little but fox live in the woods!  Probably not *these* fancy fox, but still.

I think they look dapper.

I’m also participating in a really fun Birthday Bash Swap with Stephanie at Quarter Incher.  I’m the first recipient and it’s freaking FANTASTIC!  I’m blown away by the generosity. I’ll have a separate post with all of those goodies.

Let’s see, what else…

  • Just finished up a small project for Moda Bakeshop and have another to work on. I think they’ll be published in April.
  • My design wall is –blank–.  Woot!  Which quilt to make next? I have a few ideas.
  • I need to make the April Birthday Girl her present.
  • Need to quilt a top I made last year, that I’m just not feeling.
  • Oh!  I still need to make my Scrappy Trip blocks for my hive. Yikes
  • A wall flag thing for my brother…

The list goes on but I’ll stop there.

So what are you working on?  Did you anything fun for Spring Break?
