Big wonky swirls - #7

Here's a blue HeartStrings top pieced by Karen A. that I quilted with swirls -- they got a little wild on me but I don't mind some wonkiness in a string quilt.

Swirls are a good complement to the angles of the strings, and this is great. I like her layout of the blocks.

On days when I know I am going to quilt I save your blog for reading last. It motivates me every time to get some quilting done. I love your work. :) Thanks for taking time out of your busy days to help motivate "us quilters" out here in blogland my friend!

Hi Mary,
Its good to them them swirl freely, otherwise they look too perfect, that is the way I feel anyway. Besides it has worked they look good.
