More Action on the Gypsy Wife Quilt

With all the blocks for the Gypsy Wife quilt made, it is time for sewing the quilt top together. In most cases this is a straight forward exercise. With the Gypsy Wife this is where it gets interesting.  Where to start? Section one is the logical starting point but it didn't look straight forward, so I started at Section 8. It is the need to start at a simpler section and the fact I like to work left to right. Sections 8, 9 and 10 which joins to the bottom of 8 and 9 looked a little easier then starting at 1 and 2 and is the left hand side of the quilt.

This is sections 8 and 9 with half of ten. It needs a good press.

This is where I got to as my sewing machine was playing up. Time to do something about that. I just wanted to finish this top off and I was going to have this machine serviced. She has decided she can't wait. So I will be quilting this weekend or I will change over my Pfaff back so I can piece. I have been using her mainly for quilting.
Until Next Time
Keep Stitching

Very nice! I've had a couple of sections done for quite some time now, then it scared me away. I'm determined to get back to it!!!
