I know many quilters like to use practice squares to hone their FMQ skills, but me, I just like to practice while I'm actually working on a real quilt. The people I give my quilts to don't care that the quilting isn't perfect, they don't care that a couple of lines aren't straight or that a few stitches got skipped.
So on Dylan's quilt, I decided to try something I had never done before - spirals. BIG spirals!
They are not perfect, in fact, a few of them are really bad. But if you look at the quilt while driving at 10 km/h, you won't notice how bad they really are! :-). And I really like the texture I'm getting with this design. There's a bit of space between each line in the spirals so the quilt is nice and soft.
I'm about half way done now so I should be able to finish the quilting and sew the binding on next weekend. Yay!
I hope you had a great weekend!
