My Gravity quilt is finished! Let me tell you, that’s a sentence I never thought I would say.
I was in Flint, Michigan, for the water crisis in March and April 2016 for work. As things were winding down, we got a rare Saturday afternoon off, so I immediately Googled quilt stores in the area and went for a visit. I wish I remembered the name because they were so nice to me. I browsed around and found some fabric I just loved. Then I saw the kit for Gravity. I picked it up thinking it would be fun. I was totally right about that, but life definitely had me in starts and stops on this project.
At the end of 2016, my former partner and I split up. I moved at the beginning of 2017. Then I spent two months on the road at the end of 2017 for Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. And then I spent most of 2018 trying to finish up projects that had been in the bins for nearly a decade. It just wasn’t a priority for a while.
I was smart enough to take pictures along the way. I must have known that this quilt was going to be a journey based on this picture.
A finished first block.
Perfect points!! I love it when this happens.
My old apartment was not nearly big enough to lay this out. I had to keep pushing furniture out of the way.
I had it all basted and sat down at my machine to quilt it, and immediately thought, no! I un-basted it and decided to send it off to Missouri Star Quilt Company to be quilted. I’m so glad I did. They did such a beautiful job.
Bonus Pillow Project
Julie has you cut a small triangle with each fabric so you can make a bonus pillow at the end.
I cut two of each fabric, and this is what I have!
