I made the quilt top during the Push-Pull Quilt Along hosted by Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl, but I didn't finish the quilting in time for the final link up.
I used Kona Red, Morning Glory, and Surf. It finishes around 44 x 49 inches.
My brilliant idea of using my walking foot to stitch a continuous spiral didn't end up being so brilliant after all. I started at the centre of the four arrows in the bottom left-hand corner, but I echoed using the edge of my walking foot -- so I ended up with a 3/8-inch spiral. 😲
It took several nights of quilting, including a 5-hour session on the last night because I was tired of quilting and just needed it to be done.
After quilting, it did not lay flat. I was going to block it, but that seemed like a lot of work for a quilt I hope will be used and washed on a regular basis. I'll learn how to block on a smaller quilt another time.
As much as I hated the quilting process, I love the finished look. ♥
