I started working on the Gravity Quilt (Jaybird Quilts) by Julie Herman, and it’s the most challenging pattern I’ve made to date.
This pattern book was a block of the month, but I must’ve missed that detail when I purchased the 45 page pattern book.
I was at Joann’s Fabric Store and was going to buy the fat quarters needed to get the colored diamonds started and when I figured up the cost, it was well over $250.00. Each block needs 6 different shades and there are 18 different blocks. At Joann’s prices per fat quarter $2.35 x 6 x 18 = $253.80; that was too expensive, so I decided to start the quilt by using only my scraps. I had enough scraps to complete all 18 blocks.
Here are a few diamonds that I’ve put together.
I finally finished all 18 blocks and have bought my solids for the outside blocks.
Here are the background colors.
I have all of the last blocks cut out and the colored blocks are labeled and ready to go. I can’t wait to see this baby finished.
I’m creating Magic Ya’ll!!! I’m loving it so far and am ready to see the completed pattern. Stay tuned for more.
