the gypsy challenge

Each year I enter the Gypsy Challenge and each year I never follow through.

With the $20 entry fee you receive an assortment of fabrics and trims to be used in the construction of a gypsy doll for the competition at the Houston Quilt Festival.

This year I decided to actually make an entry!  I sent in the form today with the name of the doll and her measurements.  Not an easy task considering I hadn't started her yet.

After today's labor I have most of the body completed.

Soon I will add the hands, boots and hopefully a head.

Long Live the Queen of Follow Through


  1. ah she's a wandering... a wandering jew... that's for all your gypsy plants...

  2. I think she looks great so far! Can't wait to see her with a head and the rest of her parts. Good luck. Have a great day, hugs, Edna B.

  3. Looks good so far! I entered myself as well. Had never heard of it before. Need to get my act in gear!
