The Gravity Pull

So it seems that it doesn't take much to get me to start another project...especially when there are many WIP's still yet to be completed.  But I couldn't resist the pull of another Jaybird Quilts pattern and the chance to use 114 Kona solids in one project.



Busy Hands Quilts is hosting a Quilt Along.  I need to catch up and complete Block 1, but I managed to get on board in time for Block 2 - Constellation, so I'm not that far behind.


Block 2 - Constellation


Kona:  Curry, Mustard, Ochre, Grellow, Yarrow, and Butterscotch


Kona:  Midnight, Amethyst, Regal, Indigo, Lavendar, Bright Periwinkle

Thanks to Val @ Purple Boots and Pigtails for the encouragement to start this project.  Is peer pressure a good thing?  She's coerced taught me to do improv piecing and convinced supported me to purchase her long arm quilting machine.  I'm afraid of what's next.  But luckily, we share a birthday, so I trust her not to lead me down the wrong path.  But I'll happily follow her to our LQS.  Thanks for helping me move outside of my comfort zone, Val!

If you haven't entered my giveaway for the Meet Maritime Modern Blog Hop, you have one more day to enter.

  3. So glad I could be of assistance!
    But about that path...you should know I have no sense of direction. We could end up anywhere.

  5. You've been sucked in! And you're going to cross off SO MANY KONAS from your list. Jealous. But I will resist. Love the new blog header!
