Gravity QAL

I am so excited for the Gravity Quilt.  I ordered my kit and then found the QAL over at Busy Hands Quilts.  I am so glad someone online is doing a QAL.  There are a few things in the instructions that I haven't tackled yet so I am happy to get a few pointers. 

I did finish the first two blocks.   These are the Horizon blocks in the pattern.  They were not too difficult since I have worked with diamond blocks before.  I used a 1/4 inch seam allowance on the blue block but is did come out a 1/4 inch too short.  I am hoping I can work it in when it comes time to put the quilt top together.  So on the other block I used a scant 1/4 inch seam and it turned out great. I am looking forward to the next blocks.

I really need to try to take pictures in progress.  I just get tunnel vision when sewing and forget to get the camera out. 

Not much else has been happening with sewing.  I need to get back into my goal setting with the quarterly Finish Along and monthly A Lovely Year of Finishes.  The last month has been challenging with lots of ups and downs.  Hopefully I will be able to get back to sewing now.
