Gravity Quilt - One of My Own

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.  






Thanks for stopping by and thank you to Julie Herman for creating such great patterns for all of us.  This is a block of the month pattern that is out now.  I encourage you to all give it a try.  I look forward to seeing it made up in all sorts of fabrics.  Such a fun quilt to make.

Happy Quilting!

  8. Absolutely stunning quilting! Just completed my Gravity in similar colors as Julie's pattern. Now it looks as though I will have to raid the Moonshine bolts at the shop and cut another one!!! Thanks for the inspiration!
