I present to you one of the most sought after quilts on the internet. The default is called Gravity.This is a large quilt, 96cm x 97cm, and I was asked to keep the light padded to keep within the alliances budget and this was no problem since I love custom light, that’s my thing as you know.
So it took a while to create the quilting designs and make many of those decisions. I had the quilt on the machine. The first thing I did was to search online for inspiration and only found two completed Gravity quilts.
I used elements of the patterns I saw in the center drawings and 95% of the quilting is done with rulers. To the bottom, I immediately know that I wanted to be a different quilting style than it is in the center to really separate the two areas and allow the center to shine.
This is the first sketch I created and ended up being the final design. I wanted to have lightning coming from the center but also echoing the design and I think this was the perfect combination, giving a feeling of overlap.
All the seams in this quilt are open, which is a quilted style. I’m not using it as much as I need to avoid sewing in the ditch as much as possible. Then came the rulers, especially my models of quilted pineapple, worship these curved rulers. This was the first time I tried the smaller one, the BFF, as I usually release the small CC curve. But I loved how perfect it made the quilted curves look like on this quilt because it is made entirely of solid fabrics.
WHAT WOULD I USE?
The wire that I was instructed to use was the Poly Mono, which I rarely use, but in this case it was the perfect choice. That’s the reason I was able to fold this quilt so fast and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked the final look, it gave a bit of sparkle too. One design element you may not immediately notice is that the six diamonds in the center are all padded in the same way, though they are not exactly the same. This gave the center a nice focus even though I was not following the line on all the diamonds. In fact, in all areas of design the quilt with its colors plays a main role, primordial and prominent. The colors reign, that’s it! and with this step by step of this wonderful quilt we will learn the darling of all she .. Gravity Quilt.
