This design was so much fun, and pretty easy to move around the space. It's not exactly a paisley because there are no overlapping stitches, and not really a swirl either, so if anyone knows if this motif has a name, I'm all ears!
As hard as it is to believe, I have never quilted a giant spiral on one of my quilts, and I changed that last week as well. The spiral is very dense in the center, which I quilted free-motion, and gets wider toward the outside of the quilt. I used my trusty walking foot for the outer rings. It has been raining here every day just enough to keep everything damp, so both of these are inside photos. The spiral backing looks super puffy, but in person, it really isn't.
All in all, I am so proud of myself for branching out with my quilting, and I even enjoyed quilting the top motif as much as I love stippling, so you'll definitely be seeing that one again. The spiral felt tedious though, so unless the quilt really demands it, I'm not sure I'll do that one again.
