Last week I posted about how I was all finished making all the blocks for the Gypsy Wife quilt. This week I started the painstaking and puzzling task of assembling the quilt. The big challenge with this quilt is that you have to keep the strips in order so they can run the length of the quilt. The other challenge is that there are lots of partial seams. This is Section 1.
This is Section 2. It sits below Section 1. So you can see how the strips of fabric from Section 1 are continuing in some spots in Section 2.
Don’t mind the pile of fabric and clutter all over the counter. This is a quilt top that takes a while to put together. This is Section 3. I was not able to get the whole section in the shot.
The night after I put these sections together, I had dreams about putting this quilt together. My brain hurt. It really is one big puzzle. This is Sections 1 – 3 all assembled.
Can you believe after the first 3 sections that this is Section 4? I was so happy with this one.
This is Section 5. This section is long so I had to start photographing on the floor.
And here is Section 6. I think this is the largest section in the entire quilt. I hope it gets easier from here.
So I have Sections 1 – 6 assembled. Section 7 will go in the space on the bottom right. I have to say I felt really accomplished making it this far. This quilt is the biggest challenge I’ve taken on.
