Sewcalgal's FMQ Challenge - November


This months tutorial is by Sarah Vedeler on swrils one of my favorite FMQ designs. Her swrils were deeper and perfect for any border.
I used this for the outer border on the pillow I'm making. This is  18x 18 pillow sham for my
for the baby quilt I made in August.
Here is my practice for this month.

  1. Wow! Those spirals are definitely "your thing"!! And they are so versatile! A 'go-to' stitch pattern. A variation works well as an all-over design, too. This "quilting thing" is so addicting......and I so love it!!!. Latest finish (QOV) in the wash now.....photos soon!!! Hugs, D

    1. Thank you, Doreen! Yes, quilting is very addictive. I give up everything to just get some time to quilt ;). Lately I have been more piecing that quilting. Have to get back to it.
      Can't wait to see your latest finish.
      Hugs,

    1. Sure! I have used swirls before in the borders but never went so deeper in echoing. This really adds beautiful texture.

      Thanks for stopping by.
