Colleen made this gorgeous quilt up....and I had the pleasure of custom quilting it. She send me two layers of Hobb's batting. Love the texture that was created. Aren't her colors just amazing. The background was a plum color.

I had the pleasure of getting to pattern test this Gravity Quilt pattern by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts. When I saw her version of the quilt I was in love with this pattern....I then got this crazy idea to try some of my favorite fabrics with this pattern. I used Tula Pink "Moonshine" and just added a few solids. I did supplement some of the colors with some other lines of her fabrics. I think this pattern looks great in prints too. Julie's was done in all solids. I also switched the color order of the diamonds from the pattern. It's supposed to go dark to light from the center and I just switched it.
Of course, I had to custom quilt this. The quilting on this one took forever....I think I spent a good week on this one. I normally don't spend that much time on one of my own quilts but this one was really special....I knew I needed to take the time. I'm so glad I did.
