My version of Gypsy Kisses is done. One year of planning and only two weeks of sewing. I maybe stressed over this project a little more than was necessary.
Here's a closeup of the corner background seams I mentioned last time. Some patterns use one piece of fabric for that section.
The entire time I was collecting fabric and coming up with my plan for this quilt I was worried about the background fabric being too bold and dominating the quilt. Choosing bright, bold, and large print fabric for my focus blocks did the job of taming my background fabric perfectly.
This is Lifetime Quilt Number 138
The patterns I used to create my top are Gypsy Kisses from Material Obsession 2 and Pickle Dish from Kaffe Fassett's Quilt Romance
It finished at 73" x 75"
It has approximately 913 pieces.
The background fabric is by Liberty of London.
I plan to start my Quick Curve Ruler/Sew Kind of Wonderful project on Monday, I hope you've selected your pattern and fabric and are planning to sew along with me. I think I'll squeeze in a quick no curves project before then. With all the Red Letter Day blocks on instagram I'm thinking it will be a Red Letter Weekend at my house. The pattern Red Letter Day is by Camille Roskelley for thimble blossoms and available here.
