Spiral Quilting

Progress is being made on machine quilting my UFO, but it's not done yet.
Here is a photo of one of the corners of the quilt and you can see the circular quilting lines out to the edge. So far it's laying fairly flat on the edges, which was my biggest concern with this quilting design. If everything isn't completely flat and well basted, you can end up with a teepee in the middle of the quilt and ruffles on the edges!
Also I have decided that it needs a dark scrappy binding, so I sorted through my basket of leftover binding ends and pulled out pieces to use. It will take extra time to construct a binding from so many smaller pieces, but it's perfect for this project. I hope it will be my Slow Sunday Stitching project to hand stitch the binding ... so exciting that the quilt is this close to finishing!!

  7. Quilt looks great and almost finished. I love that you have a leftover binding box. I have thought of that but keep leftover binding with like fabric in case I am in need of that little piece more for a quilt.

  8. The quilting looks excellent! And what better design could you use for a "vortex" quilt than a spiraling one!!

  10. good to see the spiral has laid flat I know you were concerned about that, liking the scrappy binding, fingers crossed you do not have joins on the corners which could be a problem
