Gravity Quilt

Did you know that it's been nearly three years since I last touched this quilt? Dreadful isn't it. I made ten blocks in June 2015 and then put it away and didn't touch it again. In my defence, we had just moved into a new house, and I fell pregnant with Jessica not long after. However, it is still quite embarrassing that I managed to finish the remaining eight required blocks in just one day. And at least part of that was spent trying to find the rulers that went with it!

Time just goes so fast and I have so many yummy projects to work on that all of a sudden a year has passed and I haven't touched something! This is not the only quilt I'm guilty of ignoring for a lengthy period (I'm sure @Archiewonderdog can provide you with a list!)...

But here are the new blocks, 2 each of four different blocks.

I've also cut up all the background fabric and I'm ready to piece a quilt top! This is optimistically on my Finish Along list for this quarter, and while I don't think it's a candidate for a finish - I'm planning some custom free motion quilting which could be a huge success or a disaster.... - I'm really pleased that I've managed to progress it a little.

The pattern is the Gravity Quilt by Jaybird Quilts
