{SQUEAL!} Look What Came in the Mail!

Oh my beating, fluttering ♥!  

GRAVITY is here!  In . my . hands and ♥!


This quilt is all . for . me . my room . my bed!  

{Sorry kids - hands off this one!}

Seriously.  No kidding.  Not a joke.  For reals.  

I often say I'm going to keep a quilt ... and then don't!

But this one is all mine!

I am considering having it professionally quilted! 

{GASP!!}


Here's the kit - the pattern book, 5 grays and black plus 108 different 10" squares. Two Jaybird templates are required, the Hex N More and the Super Sidekick. The Hex N More is on sale at Craftsy, as is the Sidekick Ruler, although Gravity uses the Super Sidekick, not the regular Sidekick.  I am looking forward to learning how to use these rulers so I can make quilt patterns that look difficult but really aren't with the right template. 


Jaybird Quilts, the designer of Gravity, has posted tips on color placement for Block 1 Horizon to make a quilt identical to the one pictured.  Phew!  I was wondering how I'd know which colors to use when!

I'm hosting a Gravity Quilt Along!

Won't you follow along?

that is gorgeous Myra. if I had all of those things on hand, you could start that QALS, and I would join. but I don't want to have to buy everything right away. it is going to be beautiful with that Kona fabric!

I have both her rulers and her first book. I can't wait to see your progress.

I'm chuckling over here! It doesn't surprise me that it would be a rainbow quilt! Love the layer cakes you got.

This is gorgeous, and I definitely would be wanting to make it exactly the same as the sample, too! I'm eager to hear how it goes--it looks like a complex quilt, but maybe with the rulers it's easy? I've never made a quilt from a kit so I am not sure I'd know where to start. Then again, I am the type who uses patterns as a jumping-off place to create my own version, so..... :) Have fun with it!

Gorgeous - great project, I'd love to make this and will be following your progress. Just love the colour in this!
