A spiral is a fun all-over design that is done with a walking foot, but there is no need to limit yourself to a circle. Any simple shape can be “spiralized”. Once your quilt sandwich is basted, you are ready to go.
To begin, choose a simple shape. I have chosen a rectangle. Don’t try complex shapes with curves and points (like hearts or flowers) as a first project. Draw the shape with a marking pen or chalk marker. I am tracing my pin container to get a rectangle.
