This quilt was just CALLING out for something special. So I designed a couple of swirly templates; one for the middle (double curl) and one for the edges (curl with diamond). Then using a variegated neutral tint thread, did a spiky meander working my way in and around the swirls. The batik card tricks got their own special treatment as well, using a “berry wine” colored thread. The border is a feather pattern using similar swirly and spikey elements. In the end…I think it turned out pretty fun!
Happy quilting in the new year!
