The Gypsy Wife BOM

And so I have finished the Amitie BOM The Gypsy Wife.  A year of wild riotous fabrics and blocks from the quilt design genius that is Jen Kingwell from Amitie Textiles in Melbourne.  It's a crazy paving kind of a quilt so I just quilted in horizontal lines and bound with a black blender.  And even on a dark rainy day in the UK, it's pretty bright.  Which is how I like my quilts these days.

  10. It really is absolutely wonderful. I am waiting that they are providing a pattern for this one. I had contemplated to join this year's Bom but in the end decided against as I actually didn't much like the little per-views. Typical just when I decided I do it...

  27. This is ART. It's crazy in the best sense of the word. How on earth do you go about putting something like that together?? Blows my mind. Love it.

  28. Fabulous, and love how the colour looks like it's running off the bottom, especially with that grey sky in the background, almost as if it's being washed out

  33. What a creative way to construct a quilt from various sized blocks! I have too many sets of exchange blocks to count that need to be made into quilts, and this one really inspires me to start thinking outside of the box.

  34. Amazing quilt - Katy is spot on, it looks like a painting where the colours are running down the canvas.I'd love to have the imagination to choose, use and put all these fabric together, it's a joy!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. This is gorgeous! I love the bright colours and the mix of formal and informal in the layout.

  36. It's beautiful. I love how it feels like the blocks are dripping if that makes sense...a bit like how paint drips down a wall.

  44. Wow Lynne it's amazing!! If you stand on your head to look at it, it looks like paintings hanging on ribbons. Stunning. Of course, if you didn't want to stand on your head you could always turn the quilt upside down. :) Xxx
