Gravity Project: Shades of Grey

All those beautiful, colourful blocks full of Kona Kandy had to be framed up with something...I guess grey seemed like a good choice to Jaybird Quilts. It certainly works well and really let's them shine.

These pieces were challenging to me only because when I was ready to cut them I was suffering the ill effects of squashed ribs and soft tissue damage caused by my motorcycle accident. It literally brought tears to my eyes when I tried to cut them with the rotary cutter so I had no choice but to keep the cutting sessions short and self medicate with chocolate and whiskey.

But, perseverance pays off every time.
N'uff said.

 Linking up with Busy Hands Quilts for the Gravity Quilt-A-Long! 


  1. Here's to self medicating. :) Glad you managed to get 'em done!

  2. Quilt making is a wonderful form of self medicating for me - your work is gorgeous!

  3. Chocolate and whiskey are a good combo!!!

  4. Wow, did you make these recently and are still sore from your accident? I sure hope you made these awhile ago and still aren't sore. You're nearly done! Yeah!
