    A couple more spicy spirals

    I have finally learned how to use the spicy spiral ruler, and got a couple more done. I will give them to my daughters this weekend. I backed both with the blue snowman fabric, so they are reversible. I am not good at FMQ, so I just did SID for the quilting. Now on to finishing some other small projects before summer gets into full swing. Thanks for looking.

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Hey there in North Dakota, what beauties for your kids. They will cherish them for ever. Love the pattern. Were they hard to do? They look very complicated but well worth it after seeing them here. Great pattern and colors too.

    Very nice job, I have that pattern but don't have the nerve to try it, after seeing this I am going to give it a shot. I like that they are reversible, thank you for sharing.

    Thanks to everyone for the compliments. They are not too hard to make, just takes some concentration, and having 2 people to help cut is a +. I wish that I had done one of these before I tackled my bargello, because it is a smaller version, and an easy way to start. They measure about 20x40. I have just ran across another runner, that uses this same ruler, so am going to cut it out and will post it when I get it done.
