New Pattern! Gypsy Revealed!!!!

It is finally done!  Gypsy is done!  This quilt has been in the works for over 2 years.  It was drawn, then sat and waited for its turn to be made up by me.  I know I wanted to create a pattern that I could play with the quilting design. I also knew this pattern would be a fabulous quilt to piece in any fabric choice.
So, I used V and Co's Ombre fabric for the colors in this quilt - watch for a kit soon. I used 9900-98 white by Moda for the background fabric.  The batting is 2 layers of bleached 100% Hobbs Cotton and the thread I used is Fil-Tec (HabnDash) Glide 60.  

Isn't this texture amazing?  I used a ton of thread and took over 4 months to quilt this out.  It didn't take me 4 months, but it was on the racks for that long.  I am assuming, because I didn't keep track, that there is over 100 hours of quilting on this quilt. I plan on entering this quilt into some shows to see how it does.

What I love about the quilt is the Ombre affect. I planned out to have each block be dark in the corners and go light in the opposite corner. You can see that in the picture above.

The sash was my favorite part to quilt.  The quilting design was inspired by the cross motif that I drew on the quilt top and the design developed from there. I mean, check out that center motif!  Ahhh, I love it!

The corners were fun, but severely confusing at times.  I had to take a lot of pictures of my drawings for reference.

Ooooh!  I love it.  Can you tell I am happy to be DONE with this quilt?  YAY!

The binding was a miracle in itself, I did the Ombre affect again with dark and lights. I used the two main colors of the quilt and ended up with 2 corners exactly in half. Not planned, I am not that good. HA!  I love happy accidents.

The back texture is always fun.

Okay, so buy your pattern now because it is on sale for an introductory price for a limited time! You can buy the PDF here and get working on your #gypsyquilt right now!  Or buy the paper version, here - knowing it will ship on March 5th.

I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Doctor ODUMODU brought back my husband that separated with me for one good year. Am ALENNA by name from ROMANIA. Even though i have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank Doctor ODUMODU for his help upon my life. My husband separated with me for one year and have been in pains and agony without him. So, i searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until i meant Doctor ODUMODU. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 48 hours as far that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when Doctor ODUMODU said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact
