GRAVITY Quilt Along Parade & Grand Prize Winner!!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

   Cheers  erupt,  confetti  falls,  and  happy  dance  begins!!  

Hurray to the quilts marching in the GRAVITY Quilt Along finished quilt parade today!  Five amazing quilts are featured and have been entered in the Grand Prize Drawing!  Three entries are from Canada, two are from the United States, and my quilt makes it a tie for Canada and US at three quilts each!

I've included close-ups of the quilting since each one is quilted so differently. These quilts prove that custom quilting is not required for a stunning GRAVITY quilt, and quilting in a simple allover meandering stitch, a pantograph, and custom quilting all look great!

Here they are!

Entry #1:  Valerie of Purple Boots and Pigtails
Nova Scotia, Canada

Valerie quilted GRAVITY on her long-arm machine.

Entry #2:  Laura of Sewing Out of My Comfort Zone
Virginia, United States

Laura had her GRAVITY quilt custom quilted by The Longarm Network.

Entry #3:  Erin
Alberta, Canada

Erin chose her own fabrics and quilted GRAVITY on her domestic machine!

Entry #4:  Melissa
Nevada, United States

Melissa's GRAVITY quilt was custom quilted by Vicki from Orchard Owl Quilts.

Entry #5:  Anja Quilts
Nova Scotia, Canada

Anja quilted the center of GRAVITY on her long-arm machine and the background blocks on her domestic machine.

Y'all did a fantastic job on your quilts!
