Week 4 and final assembly of your own Mama Gypsy should be happening - if not, no worries! Keep going at your own pace. It has been fun to see the progress on so many darling quilt tops.
When you are ready to piece the top - I like to piece 2 rows together, then piece the two halves together. It is easier to maneuver that way.
My border for this quilt had to be pieced individually and not strip pieced. You will find in my directions in my pattern that it doesn't explain strip piecing options, but you can certainly do that if you would like to make it easier. There are sixteen color choices I used - they came from the accent colors from the blocks. I wanted to have the corners of the quilt go from light to dark, a bit of a rainbow affect.
You can see how these border blocks come together so nicely. It gives the final finishing touches for Mama Gypsy that just look so amazing.
Stay tuned for next weeks post about the quilting.
