Gravity Quilt 1

Gravity Quilt 1

The first Gravity quilt got a 4 hour session on the longarm quilting machine, and thanks to a threading mishap, I had to rip out 2.5 of the diamonds and redo them at home on my machine. I also had to finish the black to light grey areas of the quilt on my own machine, which was quite the upper arm workout.

In lessons learned, I did not trim the extra batting before removing the quilt from the longarm machine. BIG MISTAKE. The quilt ended up coated in lint that was hard to remove.

Quilt Started: September 2016.
Quilt Finished: January 31, 2017

This quilt is one of my Q1 finishes, for the 2017 FAL. See my Q1 list here.

How to Make a String Quilt

Early in 2016, I started a quilt for a friend. She’d inherited part of her Mom’s stash of fabric and was looking for a way to turn it into a quilt.

The thing about having constant red blotches on your face is that you just cannot stand waiting one more minute for them to go away. And so, we run from one “cure” to the next, in search of the miracle that will just make it stop.

Spots and stripes

I have a little problem with my skin. I’ve been pretty secretive about it over the years, which is pretty pointless given that it’s in full display for anyone who looks at me. I have acne.
