Amitie BOM - The Gypsy Wife

I am now in month 3 of the Amitie BOM, the Gypsy Wife.  Each month, I tend to want to do something slightly different from what the BOM is telling us to do, not because the BOM isn't wonderful but just because it gives me a little wiggle room to play with blocks and fabrics.  


So this month I made these two blocks which were only slightly different from the blocks we were sent in my fabric choices.  I still used fabrics Amitie had sent but mixed them around a bit and mixed them with some fabrics from the other months.  Below are the photos of the blocks as they should have been made in the BOM so you can see I stuck pretty closely to the originals this month.


In case anyone is interested, there are still places left on the second round of the Circle Game BOM and the book of the Green Tea Sweet Beans BOM will be out before too long.
