Cheryl’s Gravity Quilt

Guys, I seriously had just the most fun quilting this one.

The gravity quilt is all solids, meaning that quilting can really show up well on it. And look awesome πŸ˜€

P1040719The circles and the basket weave I used on the outsides were designs I learned in Jodi Robinson’s class “Well Worth The Time Fillers” and I seriously have so much love for them. I really just want to quilt them again and again forever.

I used a lot of peacock feathers in the blocks. I like to try to have a unifying quilting element in each block when quilting a sampler type quilt. And this time it was peacock feathers.

Actually, I quilted the entire centre block part of the quilt using only 3 designs – peacock feather, continuous curve, and wishbones.

This block I think was my favourite of all.

The back turned out pretty great too:

I knew the quilting would show up a lot on the back, so I worked hard to have a nice looking back — I did three blocks in each bobbin colour to create an even looking back.

I loved quilting this quilt! I have another coming up soon, and can’t wait to get to quilt this again!

Later days!
Kathleen.

  1. I may have to borrow some of your inspiration on my Gravity when I get that far. I absolutely love your elements of design. So when is the book coming out? lol

  2. Kathleen, the quilting you do continues to amaze me. And I don’t think it’s even about using a longarm to do it, but about how you choose the designs that are appropriate for the quilt. You have such a gift for that! I continue to admire everything you do, and aim to make my domestic machine quilting look as good as yours does on a longarm. Though it’s something I will never fully achieve, I really appreciate the inspiration you give me. Thank you!
