Colour My World - Gypsy Wife (section 7) and more

 If you should want to head to Gypsy Wife first
you'll have to scroll past the pics below.

Speaking of colour

this is one wonderful, wonderful book!!
I spotted it originally on Amazon, read a little review and
as it sounded just my thing I ordered it from
Minerva in Wellington.
What a treat when it arrived to see that it differed slightly from
the cover photo on Amazon, this zingy orange
elastic is attached on the back of the book, presently holding
the whole book but can be used to put over the current
page as your bookmark. But look at the effect of that orange!

Colour in the early morning

Colour from my garden and two cherished pieces from my cupboard

Colour in my quilts
Gypsy Wife Section 7

This had three partial seams to work through.
Only three more sections to go, 8 and 9 are quite small and the blocks are a good size,
section 10 doesn't look too complex.

And now before I put fabrics away time for a little black and white

Leila - not too pleased at being photographed!

Hope you all enjoy a happy quilty weekend!



  1. Mauves and purples, beautiful, but the B&W is the best of all. And the mauve Bletilla will add to your collection when it arrives, almost in flower today.

  2. You have shown some great examples of color around us. All we have to do is be aware of it.

  3. Beautiful photos. Your Gypsy Wife is goregeous. Love all the color in this project.

  4. I do love your GW.....glad to see it coming together. Beautiful photos.

  5. Gorgeous photo, Maureen! And I LOVE your quilt section--amazing color work in this one...I love how you work with KF fabrics...I. on the other hand, cannot seem to get them to work for me. (Chacune a son gout--right??) hugs on a chilly morning Julierose

  6. Oh dear. Your black and white specimen does not appear to enjoy all the wonderful color. Your tulips are amazing. And I'm always happy to see your progress with the Gypsy Wife. And thanks to you I am enjoying the arrival of Textile Collage by Mandy Pattullo.

  7. Love that early morning photo ♥

  8. Love those tulips in the cranberry glass. It is very similar to a jug I have. My cat doesn't cop-operate for photos either.
    Have a great weekend.

  9. You're steaming though the GW sections now, love this latest one! Wonderful colours in your little ensemble on the sideboard!

  10. Thanks for the book recommendation (the orange elastic alone makes me want to buy one). This section of Gypsy Wife is really striking -I love those really dark fabrics in the mix.


Thanks for visiting my corner of blog land, hope you'll call by again soon. If you'd like to leave a comment for me I'll get right back to you.
