This is Megan’s Gravity quilt and it is a pattern by Jaybird Designs. This is the third one I have quilted and you can see the other two here and here. I have changed up the designs a bit in the center blocks, added more swirls but used a lot of the same design elements as before. The big change this time is the background design. Megan sent me a picture from a blog called Schnig Schnag so I used her design as my inspiration. Love how it turned out but a lot of ruler work!
I used a lot of rulers on this quilt and they were my QP Curved Templates and the QP Edge straight rulers. I didn’t do any SID as all the seams are pressed open, I usually prefer to SID but this quilt pattern does not need it.
The batting is Quilters Dream Blend.
I made myself a template for marking the background design. I used a double blade Exacto knife and old x-ray film to create the template. Then I used my Bohin chalk pencil to mark the corners of the design onto the fabric, not the whole design, just so I knew where to aim my ruler as I stitched it out.
I used Monopoly for the center quilting and two shades of grey for the background designs. I used #410 for the two darkest diamonds and #408 for the three lightest grey diamonds. The bobbin thread was a light grey Bottom Line for the whole back.
You may have noticed there is snow on the lake again! We had 25cm of snow fall on the Easter Long weekend! I took these pictures this morning while the snow was still hard and dry from the below zero temps last night. Should get up to +9’c today so it will be a wet sloppy mess soon enough!
