In my online and in-person classes, we explore different types of spirals — how to draw them, sew them, color them and combine them for a variety of effects.  Even after all the time I’ve taught spiral quilt design, my students still surprise me.  Below is a gallery of spirals and spiral quilts that my students have made.  I hope you find them inspiring!   (Click on the images to see a larger view, then use the “Back” button on your the bar at the top of the page to return to this page.)

Pinwheel Spirals

Cathy Barrow used a Pinwheel spiral changing direction to create the scene of stream and trees, then embroidered a covered bridge in the woods for the center.

    Beautiful colors and designs emerge from the same patter with a different approach to the colors used.
