WIP Seed Pod Quilt

Seed Pod Quilt

My first attempt at spiral stitching on a quilt.
Quilt is a 9 x 5" squares quilt.
Quite a bit to do, still cotton bits all over, edges need straightening and bias binding added and then cross fingers and stick it the wash!
Sorry after pinning this at 10pm last night, I started sewing the spiral at 11pm, (put machine on a slow walk, as didn't want to vibrate next door out!got half way through had tea at midnight and finished at 1pm.
2 Hours!!! of slow stitching.
I put this away for a few months as I didn't like the too many greys - thought it had no depth, but then last night I had a brain wave and thought the spiral stitching would liven it up a bit, and now I love it. I will be doing more abstract stitching from now on..
I am a away for a couple of days so took this from my phone at 7am, before running out the house!
I will get to finish it Friday Night.


  1. I bought all those fabrics in fat quarters, too and am not exactly sure what to do with them. This is cool!

  2. It may have taken awhile, but it looks beautiful! Keep it up!

  3. That's really cute :) Must take ages!

  4. Love the spiral quilting !

  5. Wow, the circle quilting really stands out and finishes the quilt well! I think I will be giving circles a try!



I love to read all you comments, ideas and things that may even help out!
