TGIFF - Whoomp There It Is!!!

"There's a party over here, a party over there.  Wave your hands in the air."  I'm waving my hands and doing a happy dance.  Gravity is finished!!!

I had some doubt that I would be able to quilt this 97-inch square quilt.  There were a few frantic late nights of sewing earlier this week.  I had to fold the edges over to fit it on the longarm, and then I did the background sections on my little Singer.

I present Gravity:


Gravity will be taking up permanent residence on my bed.

114 Kona colours were used in the making of this quilt -- 108 colours for the blocks and 6 colours for the background.  Woo hoo...lots of colours to cross off my list.


A closeup of the quilting.  I need to practice my skills in quilting curves.  It's not perfect, but I'm happy with it...because she's finished!!


I followed the quilting plan for the background sections from Tamarack Shack.


Thanks to Myra @ Busy Hands Quilts for hosting this QAL.  It was fun to sew along with others, and the timelines were very manageable.  Stop by to say hello and to see the other Gravity finishes.



The backing is wide back Prisms by Studio E Fabrics.

  23. Have I mentioned how jealous I am that you get to cross off that many Konas? Ack. I must finish QPP Project #1 before they add more colours (no, I haven't heard any rumours). If only there were a smaller size of this one, I'd be even more tempted! There's no way I could quilt that behemoth!
