April Gypsy Wife Blocks

The QAL schedule for Gypsy Wife is suiting me very well at present. I seem to have limited sewing time but these little blocks are very do-able in short bursts. Well, unless you take forever to choose fabrics, like me :-)

Without further ado, here are my April blocks:


They look a bit of mish-mash of colours here, but I'm hoping when all the blocks are done, they will play together nicely. Otherwise they will be banished to the naughty step for a long time-out (also known as the Dark Cupboard From Whence There Is Sometimes No Return). That little one on the lower left is bothering me with its spidery attitude so there is a good chance it is up for a remix.

There are all sorts of fabulously colourful blocks appearing on Flickr, no two quilts will look even slightly similar. Link-up if you are quilting along - this month's giveaway is a $25 (USD) from the Fat Quarter Shop, a hearty New Zealand kia ora to them for their support.
