WIP - Gravity Background Blocks

The Gravity QAL is coming to an end.  Quilt tops will be showcased the first week of September.  The link up for finished quilts runs from September 18 to November 20.

Here are the background sections which will be pieced with the 18 blocks (two colour ways of each block).  Not very colourful, but these are integral to piecing the top together.

The Tail

The Wing

The Diamonds

I seem to be missing a photo of the Triangle pieces.

The next post you read about Gravity will be a finished quilt top.  It's been a fun adventure!

You can read about my journey of piecing the nine blocks here:

Block 1 - Horizon
Block 2 - Constellation
Block 3 - Orbit
Block 4 - Intergalactic
Block 5 - Celestial
Block 6 - Ultraviolet
Block 7 - Cosmic
Block 8 - Eclipse
Block 9 - Voyage

  3. Have to have to make this quilt one day. I've enjoyed watching your components come together. Such precision in your piecing, Anja!

  4. That's so great that you've reached this stage Anja! The ombre grey background is going to make the other colors just pop!

  8. I haven't been reading many blogs lately and discovered yours through the needle and thread network. I read back and checked out your posts on the Gravity Quilt along... What fun! and now I can hardly wait to see the finished top

  9. You're so close to being done! It was nice that the gray blocks had such big pieces and went together fairly quickly.
