    Well, I put this together with some scraps of mine - I realized as I finished that I had to circles going the same way - so had to rip out and go again. Then got finished and realized that I left two pieces out - more ripping - just finished and now I realize that my "s" is backwards. I wish I could blame dyslexia but I don't have it. Oh well - I want to make another one anyway. BTW -its way bigger than I thought - I did use the 10 degree ruler - I was surprised. Back to the drawing board.

    Well, luv, if you think your S is backwards, don't call it an S... call it a seahorse. See? There's a logical solution to everything! :lol:

    Very pretty. It's a spiral and maybe doesn't have to be an "s". Looks good to me.

    Very nice. It will be beautiful when finished and well worth the frustrations you had with assembling it. I have both the 9 degree and 10 degree ruler wedge so I will probably use the smaller one as I want to make a smaller version of the spiral to fit a table I have. Please post again when this is finished.

    I've made a couple of these, and have found if you omit an even number of the larger wedges, it still comes out the same, but smaller.

    Love the seahorse, rather than a S

    Thank you Lindyline. I will have to try to remember that when I make it. Good advice.

    That one is pretty. Don't change it a bit. Just put it on a larger flat space, everyone will love it.

    Very pretty. My first one was a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be too. Had to leave out a couple of wedges and trim the sides down to make it fit on my coffee table.

    Isn't it true that every quilting adventure is a learning experiment? At least it is for me.

    I think I want to make another but trim down like the others have suggested - I think it would look real cute at 1/2 the size.

    I really like the spiral----I never saw the pattern before. I want to make one---it would look so good on a large table---now I have to get a large table :)
    Do you have to have a special ruler or something??? Are the directions easy to follow???? I really like this......
