Gravity Finish

I have a big finish!
And I love it.


It's amazing how different a quilt looks once it's quilted, isn't it?



The Flimsy before quilting...




And the finished quilt.


This quilt is so large, I can't get back enough to get a good photo.


It's too wet and muddy outside to put it on the grass and take
a photo from the deck.

The floor will have to do for now.




I think this quilt will be on the bed in our guest room,
but I haven't decided for sure.
It will need some bright pillow shams if it stays here.
 

The rich, vibrant colors just glow in this one.
It wasn't my favorite while making it,
but now that it is finished,

Woohoo!!

Happy Quilting!

CLAP, CLAP, CLAP...WHOOHOO! BRAVO! You must be reading my mind. I was just thinking about that quilt top yesterday, wondering if the quilter had finished. Not something I would normally like...gorgeous!

Beautiful, the quilting adds an extra dimension to it, but it was already stunning.

It is just beautiful. I had no idea the quilt was so large. I've been reading blogs for the last several weeks where "Gravity" has been quilted and each one is so lovely and so different with the quilting. It's amazing to me how we quilters come up with so many ideas for quilting. And I'll admit, for me, that's the hardest part and takes me the longest to decide upon.....WHAT QUILTING DESIGN SHOULD I USE--HOW SHOULD I QUILT THIS QUILT? Your piecing is spot on! Blessings....have a great holiday weekend! ( I'm catching up on my Westering Women now that I gotten over the "hump" of Sweet Gum Leaf, thanks to you! :) )

WooHoo is right, it is just gorgeous. Yes, even after all the years I have quilted, it amazes me all the time how the quilt looks after the quilting and yet another change when we bind it.

That quilt is outstandingly beautiful. I can just imagine sleeping under it and then waking up to see it over me. I'm sure it is a pattern but I have never seen it before. Beautiful.
