    Maybe if you post this in the main section you would get more replies, most people look in the Tutorials for help
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Funny thing happened I went to this sight and was scrolling down with my scroller on my mouse and one of the little twister looking quilt pictures you could see the twisters twisting! I did it several times, must be an optical allusion or something but was quite weird and funny.

    This is a pattern for a spiral bargello tree skirt. If you want it to be a complete block, it would only take a bit of tweaking to make it so.

    also check out RaNae Merrill's books. Her design technique can be tedious but the results are fabulous!

    I have one in my UFO basket. Takes a 9% ruler, It is difficult. Last week took most of mine apart and will try this week to get it right. Good Luck

    Look at the Phillips Fiber Art web site under their Ruby quilt and there's a tutorial.

    Don't forget paper piecing. My local library has several paper piecing books with great spiral patterns. Have fun.

    Roolen has a star spin if that's what you want. Just search her name and you'll find it.

    Look at the one that Kitsie put the link to...it's pretty much a round log cabin.

    As you can see by all the answers above, there are a lot of spiral quilt patterns. Which one are you looking for?

    Funny... I have not been checking in lately as I have been really overwhelmed and busy. I saw a name of a book I wanted by Cheryl Phillips so was over on her website before I came here. I have used her method for a mariner's compass and was wanting something dif. for another round robin I am joining after the New Year. Her stuff is awesome. I think I have to go order some of her new tools. The spiral stuff is intriguing--the wedge ruler has a couple of patterns. I have done a tree skirt using a 10 degree ruler--in fact I made 4 of them. Lot of work but worth it.
