Gravity Quilt Block Colors - Block 3 Orbit

Wednesday, April 15, 2015
Now that Gravity block of the month programs are kicking off,  I thought it might be a good idea to have a some blog posts for those of you who are interested in making a spot on Gravity quilt.

You can find the colors for Block 1 here, and Block 2 here.

To make Block 3, you will still be working from the 1st fabric pack, as you did for Blocks 1 & 2. The fabrics are in order in the pack. The next 6 in the pack are fabrics A through F of Block 3, as noted in the book:

And so on for the final set of 6 fabrics in the pack to make the second Block 3:

Follow these images clockwise to see the names of the colors with a swatch, the letters correspond to the letter label of the fabrics to cut in the Gravity book:

As I mentioned in the Introduction of Gravity, the intention is that you will have fun making your Gravity quilt and have fun with the subtle color variations within the quilt blocks. There is no need to stress about precisely matching fabric or color placement from block to block.

The beauty of this design, and the variety of fabrics and colors used to create it, is that each quilt will take on a subtle and distinct look and feel of its own. With that in mind, for those of you who REALLY want to know which colors I used where, I hope you will find these posts to be helpful.

If you're looking to order a Gravity Quilt kit, they are available now from Fat Quarter Shop and Hawthorne Threads, as well as other local and online quilt shops.

Tell us in the comments below: How are you enjoying making your Gravity blocks? Have you viewed the Hex N More video tutorial yet?

Remember to share your photos on social media with the #GravityQuilt tag & have fun!

This is awesome. I was thinking about this and what a lot of work you have had to put into this quilt hitting the stores. Seems pretty easy but not when you give it a minute of thought
thank you for the time you put into making it easier for us to make your quilts.
