Mary, your Gypsy Wife is wonderful. Who knew all those fabrics would look so good together.
Mine is only 1/3 finished. I will do it after the New Year.
All I can say is “Wow”!!
Amazing quilt!! I am in awe of all that you do! Love seeing pics of all your animals as well as the quilts. Looking forward to making a rug in January!
Very interesting! Very busy! Very challenging and who would ever know if it was put together right? And who cares! It looks great, especially with all the color, shapes and streamers. Patience is a real virtue and you did it. Great job. It works. Maybe the incomplete instructions are to challenge the sewer as there may not be a really easy way to put it together?
In the meantime, back to something simple? Isn’t “retirement” fun?
Have a nice Thanksgiving. Hope you aren’t having bad weather. It doesn’t sound very good around us with blizzard warnings, etc. If you can believe the weather report, Rapid City should get just 1-2″ of snow with wind and COLD–enough snow to make it slippery. It is about 25 degrees right now, but the wind is blowing and it chills to the bone. Had to turn the heat up as the house is cool. Supposed to be colder tomorrow and Friday, but this is November. We had 60 a couple days ago.
This is beautiful and I loved all the posts with the individual blocks!
Wow!! I’m impressed and love the colors. AND, May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs:)
Wow! Well done Mary, your Gypsy Wife looks fabulous! I am still cutting strips, but this gives me hope!
Have a great Thanksgiving,
Kind Regards Fiona.
I LOVE it BUT you must be blind sewing it together. Have a WONDERFUL holiday.
I just started my Gypsy wife this week – hope it turns out as nice as yours did!! LOVE IT!!!
Wow!!!!! It came together beautifully. Wonder how you managed sewing today with all those grand dogs there.
Wow, it’s beautiful! I have gathered all the fabrics I want to use in mine, will start cutting and sewing in the New Year. Happy Thanksgiving!
Wow! Very impressive. When you first started this journey and posting various blocks I though ok..looks interesting. But now…amazing! Might have to put on my to do list next year. Love all the stories on the furry borders. What is the update on your newest kitty? Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
Big Hallelujah! It looks great! Glad you had the patience to finish it the way it suppose to be. Love looking at all the fabrics you used, it’s like fabric hieroglyphic.
You are a brave woman…..inspires me to step out of my comfort zone and get something
Looks really good, Mary!! Congratulations on getting it all in to one piece!!
Wow what a journey it is beyond a masterpiece
WOW, is all I can say!!
I love it! I’m working on mine so I’ll send a picture soon I hope!
It is beautiful. So much work!! But very pretty.
That’s is great!! I am so jealous wish my was that far. My after Christmas project.
Love the way this scrappy quilt went together. Just beautiful.
Happy Thanksgiving. Hope you are not getting all the bad weather.
I am with Becky…WOW!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! We have so much to be thankful for!
I cannot believe all those discreet and sometimes weirdly wild blocks came together so well! It really is a show piece. I loved your pinwheels when you showed them individually, and I am drawn to them again now, they make your eye travel around the quilt!
What a fun project, now that it is done.
Thank you for sharing your experiences as you worked through the sections on this quilt! This finished quilt will not quietly lie on a bed; it will insist on being examined and touched and explored and loved. Mary, you met the challenge of exceeding your comfort zone and look at the result! Beautiful! A wonderful Thanksgiving treat for all of us. Thank you!
Awesome job…..you can add one more thing to be thankful for at dinner tomorrow! I want to make one, too!
You’ve inspired me to try this one. It looks wonderful!!
Holy wow! Was it just yesterday you only had one row done? I don’t know how you do it, knowing all the chores and other things you do in a day! It looks great. Congratulations and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
Your Gypsy Wife came together so beautifully Mary.
Your Gypsy Wife quilt is awesome! All of those unique blocks came together for a fun and great quilt. Great job! Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
Your guilt turn out great and you were so worried about…..love all your posts!!!! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!!
It’s beautiful Mary, inspires me to keep collecting fabric to make my own. I love it!!
I love it! I am jealous- I am stuck on the last few filler blocks and my motivation is gone….but I was just looking at her “it’s a small world “…..next year?????
No! Not unless you’re going to be the leader, Heather! Then I might consider it.
Wow! Love it! So colorful!!! Also—Is there any other way to watch a football game other than having some animal/s snuggling on your lap???!!! Way to go Hawkeyes—keep it going!
Congratulations, job well done. Love the fabrics, now I need to get mine back on the table. You are a true inspiration. Hope your Thanksgiving day was wonderful. Thanks so much for the finish photo.
You did an Amazing Job with your Colors & Contrast! Each Block is Visible but none of them jump out & steal the show! When you get it Quilted, it will be so Cozy and just such a relaxing piece of Art Work as you & others view & study it up close! You may even forget all the Frustration that came with putting it all together! You are an inspiration!!! Congratulations on completing this challenging Quilt! Freda
