Tah-Dah!

It’s done, it’s done, it’s done!!!

I finished this yesterday, but I had no where that I could hang this to get a picture. So this morning I had my hubby hold up one side so that I could get a picture of this completed “top”.

Gravity

It went together almost magically yesterday. I still don’t believe it done.

So, as I am explaining to my hubby that it’s done and I want to get a picture of it he says: “You mean you have it quilted and everything?! – Wow, that’s great!” I pushed him off the deck – after I took the corner of the quilt from his hands.

6 of 6 are completed

Well, they are done, I will have to take care and do a little reinforcement on that one spot, but all 6 of these are done and ready to go to the next step.

The Final 6

Here they are, all ready to be joined into one.

Crashing stop

I am literally putting the last set of triangles together for the last section and this happens:

oops

oops-location

I am sure this happened when I ripped it apart because it didn’t match up close enough or is was part of the group that I had pre-assembled incorrectly. It doesn’t matter, it happened! UGH!!!

Here we go…Part 1

Yeah, the beginning to the end.

She’s coming round the bend.

The first step is always the hardest – that’s for sure on this thing.

I spent most of today, getting things arranged, trimmed up and sorted.

But I was determined to get one of the final 6 put together. So far so good.  I am finding that it is so hard to get things lined up (to my comfort/satisfaction) I am sewing together, then tearing apart.  I am hoping it gets easier soon!

All pieces done!!!!! Ready for assembly.

What do you do on a hot, rainy, stormy day in July in Minnesota – you get things DONE – baby!

All the diamonds are assembled, “squared-up” and organized.

The next step is to start assembling into larger ‘diamonds’!

Edges and Corners

When doing puzzles, you always start with the corners and edges and work  your way in…
In quilting you always start in the middle and work you way out.

So, in this project it is very exciting when you are starting on the edges of this diamond/star pattern.

I can almost see the end!!!edges corners

Best Pinterest project ever

Can i just saw that this is the best Pinterest project that we have done!  Working on this huge Gravity Quilt and having this amazing ironing board work area has made this project so nice to work on – I just can’t saw enough about this project.  I know it looks a little rough – I haven’t finished it off yet, I’m still trying to figure out a way to have a cutting area on here also.

But I think after working on it this past couple of months, I love having all this space to layout the pieces, layout the blocks and make them has been so much easier with this table!!!

Ironing / Work Table

I got a piece of denim from the fabric remnant store and some thin batting from Walmart. It is just perfect!!!!  I am using a art easel to hold this book/pattern and that has been awesome – I have had it laying around for years – you know, planning to use it at some point – well, I found the perfect use for it!!!
