The dilemna: I needed (wanted) a different comforter for my king size bed. I trolled Pinterest, found a post by Macy's featuring a quilt with a large pieced panel in the center, the width of the quilt.
Cheater solution: I bought a king size quilt from Stein Mart ($29 !!). Bought $$ quilt fabric which I cut into 2-1/2" strips. Which brings me to the current step in the process - laying out the strips and sewing them together.
Stay tuned for progress reports :)

This three panel painting (triptych in art speak) was a personal challenge in color mixing. Using ONLY the basic cyan (blue), magenta, cadmium yellow "primaries" I painted this for my AZ home. White was used to create tints for value/contrast.
After repeatedly pinning photos of the Gypsy Wife quilt, I caved, bought the pattern, and have started the journey :) A local Mesa, AZ, quilt shop Etc. pointed me in the direction of a Valley quilter's "quilt along" at hydeeannsews.blogspot.com. So with bags packed, so to speak, the journey begins!!
