Gypsy Wife Quilt Along Schedule + Giveaway

This week, we announced the Gypsy Wife Quilt Along. Are you looking for a replacement QAL for the City Sampler? Then this is perfect.

It took some revisions, but I think we finished an initial plan for the Quilt Along. The schedule for finishing the quilt in December is below, it is never too late to join us over on flickr.

    This looks like a very interesting QAL. I would dig into my prodigious stash and make some headway on it – then have to go shopping to find just the right add-ins! Thanks for the chance to win the pattern – if I do, then I’ll join in for sure!

    I have been “out of it” for awhile because of radiation treatments & NO energy or interest. I’ve stumbled on your site & “Gypsy Wife” quilt. This is new to me–I don’t think I have ever heard of it–of course, my memory isn’t what it was–I will be searching the quilting web to see if I can find it. I may get lost & forget what I’m searching for–believe me, it happens! I am repeating “Gypsy Wife” over & over.
