Stay tuned to see how to register to win here at the Morning Latte
but first, seeing as how we've already spent so much time together,
I should really introduce myself, especially if you are new around here.
I am Cheree, the head coffee-lover-quilter in charge around here.
I could start off by telling you a bit about myself--you know, 31+
years with the hubs = 4 adult children and 3 grandchildren, and
some other things like the huge garden, chickens and a rooster with
no concept of telling time.  My life's summary would also include a
love of knitting, reading, (esp classic lit & non-fiction history) and
cooking with all of that real food from the garden, and of course
 there would be an extensive section on golf.

But it's okay, I feel ya--I know you want me to get right to what we're
 all here for, yeah?  Ah, I thought so.  Let's get down to the quilty talk!

I have been a quilter for over 25 years.  Over the last 6+ years, my
"full-time hobby" expanded into a longarm business that includes
quilt sales on Etsy (with the proceeds going to charity--very fulfilling!)

I currently sew on a 2023 Pfaff 720 Quilt Expression.

I quilt on an APQS 2019 Lucey, complete with Quilt Path (v 5).
Both are in my studio which is in our home. YAY me, right?
I get to stay home!

* Side Note *
I recently did a room tour with Angela Huffman so if you'd
like to see a little of my studio, you can check it out on the
on their Facebook page if you belong to that group.
(The tour begins around 22 mins into the video.)

So now it's time to share my Villa Rosa Designs quilt!
It is with those trusty machines (they become our friends, right?)
that I quickly worked up my version of the VRD pattern "Gypsy".

What a fun and quick pattern--and just perfect for those
large-print fabrics that you don't want to cut up too much!

My previous quilt had well over 3,000 pieces so I was very
due up for something fast and fun!  What great timing for
a Villa Rosa Designs pattern, right?

To make this quilt, I decided to go all Bonnie and Camille
with my fabrics.  Well, most of them anyway--there may be
a few others mixed in there.  But, see?  I'm telling you, this is
an easy one to just toss in anything that coordinates!

Now, you could just stop here for a nice baby quilt (36x45).
(Aw, look at that ray of sunshine showing its approval!)
But believe it or not, I don't currently know anyone with a baby
 on the way so I decided to add some size to this one.  If you've
followed along with me for any length of time, you'll know that
I add borders to just about everything. I'm also currently trying
to move out these Bonnie & Camille fabrics so why not get more
of them into this quilt?  So Ms. Ray and I started playing around...

and a few geese and churn dashes later...


Voila!  It's that simple!
(Simpler than trying to get that white to show up well in a pic!)

I am calling my Gypsy quilt "Orchard Daze" because it reminds me of
our orchard when I was young.  We had all kinds of fruit trees
including two cherry trees.  (I used the red cherry fabric on the back)
 We now have peaches, pears, apples and apricots but alas, no cherries.
But I digress.

I quilted my version of Gypsy in "Riviera" (My Creative Stitches).

How do you think it turned out?

The VRD "Gypsy" quilt pattern provides a beautiful patchwork
design for a great baby quilt OR, if you want more size, it's a quick
base for adding a border or two and then you'll be good to go!

Either way, you'll have your quilt top done in a day!  A day!
And as a bonus, do some stash busting while you're at it!

I know you're excited to get started on your own VRD quilts
but first here's the part where you sign up for those prizes!

To register to win on THIS blog, I would appreciate if you become
a follower of the Morning Latte.  (You can subscribe up to the right).
I generally post just once a week and do nothing else with your
email address!  Please leave a comment below telling me what your
 favorite of the 5 new VRD patterns is.  
If you are "no-reply" or "anonymous", please be sure to include your
email address so that I can contact you if you are one of the winners. 
(Used for prize notification & blog subscription only--nothing else.)

UPDATE:  I am getting entries from no-reply commenters but
with NO email address left!  PLEASE!  I would love to include you
in the drawing but I cannot without a way to contact you!

Now, as I mentioned, this is only day two of the fun.
There are 4 other bloggers who are excited to share their own VRD
quilts today so check 'em out.  THEN make sure you check back
daily over the next week because the fun is JUST beginning!
Use the schedule below to make your plans. 
And don't forget share this with all of your quilty friends so
they don't miss out on all of the inspiration, fun and prizes!

newbies out there.  I can't wait to hear from you!
Happy quilting with Villa Rosa Designs!

I really like what you have done with the pattern., and those prints are perfect
Kim Pemberton said…
I love adding borders and yours came out beautiful. A light bulb went off in my head, now I need to get busy
Debbie said…
I love the Twinkle pattern. I am subscribed to your blog now and look forward to reading your blogs for new ideas! I like that you added to the pattern for a larger size quilt!
Kate said…
I love all the patterns but Gypsy will be first to try. I love what you did with borders. Great ideas!
I subscribed to the blog!
Linda said…
Cheree! Your Gypsy is gorgeous! I'm crazy about that pattern and can see it in so many colorways, and I love the way you enlarged it, and I love the name. I had planted a Montmorency cherry tree about a year before we sold our house in Edmond, OK, and if I could have dug it up and transported, I would have. It hadn't produced but was due to do so. I wonder if it's still there!
Cheree, I love the added borders you chose to use and the colors that you used too! What a pretty quilt!
Super cute in Bonnie & Camille fabrics!!! You did a great job enlarging the pattern to a useable size for a big person, too!
I like the blocks you chose to add as a border. Looks great!
Redlizard70 said…
Subscribe-check. My favorite VRPattern is the one I'm sewing at the time. Of this bunch I might pick 31 for how different it will look based on the panel. Now on to your quilt. Adding the additional borders made it look like an entirely different pattern. It's genius. Quilters are such delightful people. Thanks for sharing and participating.
SewHappy28 said…
I have subscribed to your email - thank you.
I love the borders you have added to Gypsy... and it is now my favorite of the five !
Renea said…
I am a new follower and a new fan after looking around on your blog. I was going to say Twinkle was my favorite pattern but after seeing what you did with Gypsy pattern it is my new favorite. Would love to know the size of the flying geese you made. Thanks for the inspiration!

A very pretty finish, perfect for spring. I like how you put your spin on the pattern.

LizzyAstro said…
Love your version of Gypsy! I would choose Ebb Tide from this set of patterns and I have subscribed to your blog.

Love how you made the quilt bigger by adding the boarders. Doing a lot of Quilt of Valor and a lot of quick patterns are small and need to have additional blocks or boarders will pick this option in mind.
thank you for the inspiration.

Good morning. I love that darling quilt. Great job. Thanks for the chance to win. I love the twinkle pattern.

This is a great version of Gypsy. I love the added borders and the quilting is perfect. My favorite pattern in this group is Gypsy. I know that I will make it again and was going to try to work it up in charm squares and see if that will work! I am thinking it is a good one for leftovers from a quilt too.
bcarlf said…
I like your version of the pattern a lot. I may be tempted to try it. I also like the Clover pattern. I tend in my old age to do smaller things and I really like table runners and such. This blog hop looks like so much fun. Thanks so much as it keeps me looking forward to being involved.

I subscribed and
my favorite of the 5 new VRD patterns is 31. However, I love what you did with Gypsy! The border with the churn dash and flying geese was genius! I tend to just do the pattern and a border but what a great way to take the pattern to the next level! thank you for sharing!

I'm a new subscriber. You and I have some things in common--including a love of chickens and similar amounts of time as quilters. You're quilting on my dream machine, that lovely Pfaff! 😍 My favorite of the Blog Hop patterns in Gypsy for the very reasons your quilt demonstrates: how well it shows off favorite fabrics and how expandable it is.
Martha Gee said…
I really love your added border to the quilt! It adds some character and helps with focus. I think of the 5 I would have said twinkle or is it twinkie, but I really love what you've done with this pattern, so I might try it.
