Since some time I dream of making a gypsy style quilt. As I had not enough fabrics for such a project, I had to wait to receive them to start. My idea was to make a soft medium tunes quilt, with some strong contrasts here and there, so that it is not boring. I wanted to give it a "random style", which in fact is everything but not random! I enjoyed playing with all these varieties of values and colors but... I suffered... isnt' it paradoxical?
My fabrics arrived last friday. On saturday and sunday, in a sort of frenzy, I cut and sewed restless, so that on sunday evening my 120 blocks were laid out on the design board! Monday and tuesday I spent some time examining the result of all this frenzy from far, from close, from up the stairs, taking pictures... At the end, I believe that this last layout is the good one and that I should stop looking at it and start piecing the blocks together!You will see this top finished in my next post.
Hope you are having a great time quilting!
