Amitie BOM month five

This month in the Amitie BOM The Gypsy wife, we have two blocks to make.  I've made the blocks exactly as directed although I did swap the fabrics around a tiny bit.  These blocks are a great way to practise core piecing skills like half square triangles, quarter square triangles, nine patches, paper piecing and matching seams.  



And then, as a comparison, here are the blocks as they are in the BOM.  On reflection I think I prefer Amitie's versions this month!

  3. ... yeah, and me! sorry to be so unoriginal!

    For me the Kaffe-s in the second block make it a little too 'primary' BUT the more I look at it the more I like its grungy industrial vibe ...

  8. Very nice, very nice! I was sorely tempted but sat on my hands. I also love anything Jen does. Have fun!

  9. I love that gray dotted cheater print in Amitie's version of the first block, that looks like hand quilting. Oh wait, that's not a cheater, it's actually really hand quilted. Are the fabric designers watching?
