      I did, also!!!! “Swirls” are a deceptively complex appearing stitching design. They give wonderful texture (especially after laundering!), reign in unwanted piecing fullness/stretching and they give the stitching great practice opportunities to practice smooth arcs and “stitching in the spaces”….by that I mean that when you spiral in there are spaces created then when spiraling out you must keep your eyes on splitting the space and not looking at the actual stitching line that is being created. The result is a more evenly spaced stitching and one that is really much more fun to create (and a lot easier with this mindset). Feel free to e-mail or call me if you have questions!!!! Sending reeeeeelly toasty hugs your way……..
