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.

Lastly, I have an extra Gypsy Wife Pattern up for grabs. Just leave a comment on what fabrics, fabric line or colors you would use to make the quilt. I will randomly choose a winner, next Thursday @ 6pm EST.
