Questions like these are intuitive and natural to anyone creating a quilt. Once those first beginning stages are mastered, your natural curiosity should be your guide to ever more interesting experiences in piecing, color play, and quilting.
Today's design was created from just such a question - what will happen if I break up a space with several foundational lines, then fill those spaces with closed spirals? The answer: What happens is you get an awesome new texture!
This worked out so easily and looked so great in the block, I already added it to the background of Express Your Love:

Design Family - Foundational.
Difficulty Level - Advanced. I'd say the only downside about this design is it might be a bit time consuming. You could easily speed the process up by stitching open spirals into all the spaces instead of closed spirals because that will eliminate a ton of travel stitching.
Still, I like the travel stitching and darker quality of this design, no matter how time consuming it makes the design. In terms of intensity this is a design that's going to ratchet any area of your quilt up a notch!
