Gypsy Wife Amitie BOM

The new Amitie BOM has kicked off and my first block is made. Jen always starts off these BOMs with a nice easy starter block. I love to use these BOMs to play with my stash a bit too so I've used some of Jen's fabrics in this block and some of my own too.  My husband may come and leave a rude comment on this post because he thinks it's funny when I saying I'm going to play with my stash; he thinks it's a euphemism. 
Gypsy Wife Amitie BOM by Lynne @ Lilys Quilts

For anyone wishing to play along, there is a Flickr group here. The Circle Game BOM is also being re-run at the moment and for information about that and this BOM, go to Amitie Textiles website and they will get you enrolled. And the best piece of news for those of you who, like me, missed the Green Tea and Beans BOM, a book of that BOM is coming out soon and I am planning on it being my big summer holiday hand sewing project. Can't wait.  Oh and here is the picture of the finished Gypsy Wife quilt in case you were wondering.

  5. I may seriously have to check this out, though I just started Camelot (due in part to my love for your Circle Game quilt - that's another I'd like to try). And this Green Tea quilt? I'll have to look it up. Anyways, your first block is fab. May I ask where you got that daisy fabric? I have it on red but can't find the other colors anywhere.

  6. Hand sewing - you can do it ;o)
    It's great to have a mobile project for holidays.
    Looking forward to seeing you develop this BOM project - next time will it be the Camelot quilt or the Georgetown / Georgetown Turnaround quilt

  9. This is going to be a fun BOM to watch. Do you have a color theme or is it totally scrappy?

  20. ooh he's a right one your husband isn't he? Personally I think using your BOMs sounds euphamismy.

  23. I got my Gipsy 2 days ago, a well as the aunts quilt, now I need time, lol

    but Jen's designs are wonderful

    where did you get the info about the GTSB book?

  24. Hooray for green tea and sweet beans! I can't wait to get taht book!

  25. i love this block and i pinned it to audition it as an extra block for my farmer's wife quilt. is this an original design by amitie? or is it a traditional design? i'm drafting my blocks by hand for most of this quilt, but if it is an original design then that seems uncool. and i definitely can't sign up for another big quilt project. 121 farmer's wife blocks is enough!
    i should also mention that i adore the fabrics you chose for this pattern. yum, yum.
