Gypsy Wife QAL

I needed to complete one block (Hope from Hartford) to have the blocks for January complete.

Today I organized my stuff for the Gypsy Wife QAL that's happening on Instagram.  I remember I had an "out of my comfort zone" color scheme.  But now my brain is saying LET'S DO THIS!  It has been on my WIP list since 2017.  Here's what I have collected so far.  These aren't my usual fabrics.

Here's stuff I need to remember:

I can find the info for the 2019 Gypsy Wife Quilt Along at Stitched In Color blog.

The hashtag on Instagram after I made the four January blocks is #Jan2019Gypsies

The hashtag for anything related that I post on Instagram is #2019GypsyWifeQAL

January blocks are:  Color Wheel, Pershing, From the Heart, and Hope from Hartford.


  1. Nice progress on your Gypsy Wife QAL!! I once entertained the thought of making one of those, but moved on to other patterns. What else are you starting this year?

    1. Quilting Stuff:

      Sand Castles (Bonnie Hunter's new string book) RSC19

      string parallelograms (from my scrap basket)

      Temperature QA - one kite block per day colors align with the daily temps.

      Owl's Well That Ends Well - Owl quilt for the RSC19 (I'll make a block for Saturday). Pattern from a book I got at the library called "Quilts for Scrap Lovers"

      I'll definitely set aside time for the Bonnie Hunter 2019 mystery in November.

      Hand Stitch Stuff:

      Mason Jar/Flower cross stitch pattern from my friend's daughter

      Linen and Threads - Mystery Sampler SAL (free monthly cross stitch from facebook)
