Gypsy Wife Quilt #2

This is my second Gypsy Wife quilt. I made it with the intention that I would follow a quilt-along where each month one of each of the 10 sections would be completed. I got all the way to Section 7 when I couldn't stand it any more. I just had to keep going. So I finished the quilt top last weekend.

During the week I bought the backing for the quilt and put it on my longarmer. Once I finished quilting it, I decided to use the same backing fabric for the binding.

Today I hand-stitched the binding while watching the Milwaukee Brewers' game. It's about 97 degrees outside so it was a good way to spend the day even though I would rather be outside.

This pattern was quite a challenge and many people think it's a hard pattern but I think it's just complicated. The blocks are simple - it's the putting it together part that is unusual.

I used a pantograph called Trumpet Vine to quilt it. And even though this is a scrap quilt, I tried to showcase fabrics with cats on it in many of the blocks. What fun!
