This Gypsy Quilt was made for the new owners of our Houston house. They put a contract on it and they kindly agreed for us to lease it back until the end of the school year so our boys could have some sort of routine before we moved to Salt Lake City in the summer.
I chose this kit from my stash because it had so many pinks and purples and screamed "GIRLS". Ironically. Our house was trading 4 boys for 4 girls and this was perfect for them. I don't normally buy a ton of kits from Joann fabrics, however, this one was on clearance when the store moved from small store to their super store. It had 14 fat quarters and was a whopping $3.99.
Really. How could I resist?
The blocks were quick and easy to construct.
It was all about making each one as scrappy as possible.
|I really don't miss having my machine in the garage!!|
Since I was going for "quick" and easy. I loaded it up and chose the Daisy Galore pantograph.
The backing was also from my stash. A hot pink floral and stripe from Joann's circa 2007.
I framed it out with a purple floral binding from my stash.
|Excuse all the wrinkles. I had it all packed away so the movers didn't misplace it before I left it behind.|
When asked why I felt the need to make the new homeowners this quilt? I simply say that I was every grateful for them to be so accomodating. We were able to host After- Prom night for our oldest son's "last hoorah!" We were able to have our families from afar and come celebrate our oldest son's graduation.
