I think longarm quilters have so much fun with this quilt, because the block pieces are large enough to put a lot of details in, without it being too stiff or overly quilted. The quilt is approx 100x100 to give you an idea of scale.
There are 16 blocks--with 8 unique blocks, 2 of each, so I quilted each of the 8 differently, but using the same elements in each for unity.The colors don't read true on my camera.
Tamarack Shack (Kathy), Quilting is my Bliss (Teresa) and Valerie's Threadtales (Valerie) .
I'm sure I saw others as well, but those are the ones I kept going back to look at again. I didn't want to copy their work, but I sure took inspiration from them.
When I did start to draw, I wasn't pleased with the 12 pointed star border, so I 'created' blocks by stitching 4 backgound diamonds the same, and thus created a 6 pointed star. You really don't see it from the front, but from the back, it really shows.
First, here's a shot of the 'created' block and the border stitching from the front,
I think the tough decision would be which way to face the quilt on the bed--it's quite reversible.
Thanks Vicki, for letting me play with your Gravity quilt.
