    Bordered Periwinkle quilted with spirals and diamonds

    This design is from the bordered periwinkle tutorial. I added sashing and colored corner blocks. First I sewed down the center of the black sashing with my walking foot to stabilize the quilt. Then I quilted the spirals in the round part because I wanted to try some variegated thread. The nested diamonds or kite shape is for contrast.

    The pictures won't open larger for closer examination. The screen is just black. Anyway, your quilt is very pretty.

          I like the way you think about the quilting. Seems like something I would attempt. Did you just eyeball the spirals? Or did you draw them on? I can't seem to get mine evenly spaced! I agree it looks like stained glass!

                            I did everything freehand, no marking. Nothing is even vaguely close to evenly spaced, but when taken all together it looks fine.
