This is number 11 in the Free Motion Quilt Challenge at Insights from SewCalGal.
This month, Sarah Vedeler challenged us with doing spirals in a grid format. I especially like the looks of the small spirals in the grid (mine are 1”). They are also the easiest to make and control shapewise.
|Lots of spirals|
I have often quilted spirals but always found it difficult covering an area evenly. The spiral variation is a great way of changing the direction of the spiral and moving to different areas.
I thought I would give myself an extra challenge and quilt on satiny fabric. The dark blue is different than the yellow and the white, heavier and not as shiny.
I also experiemented with three different threads:
Superior's Trilobal Polyester (Natural Colors) in gold on the white,
Gutermann 100% Viscose in dark blue on the yellow,
Mettler's Poly Sheen 100% polyester in grey on the blue.
This is what is looked like after blocking before making the pillow.
Lots of fun, thank you Sarah!
Also, Nina Marie has invited me to link up to her Off the Wall Fridays, so check it out, lots of nice art quilts.
