20. Learn how to Quilt Hot Hot Spiral, #384

It's time to learn a new design today and expand our supply of Independent designs swirled up with spirals! Today let's learn design #384 - Hot Hot Spiral!

This is such a fun, simple combination of Sharp Stippling and Basic Spiral, but just a warning - YouTube is being cute with my videos all of a sudden changing the aspect ratio to make the video all squished and weird. So enjoy a chuckle today as you see me talk through my squished, hamburger looking face!

Difficulty Level - Beginner.

Design Family - Independent

Hopefully YouTube will get this video issue fixed. I haven't changed anything with how I edit, produce, or upload my videos, but all of a sudden they're super weird and this is SUPER ANNOYING!

I'm off to go felt something. A few hours of sticking pins in wool might make me feel better!

Let's go quilt,



  1. Leah,
    Thanks for the great video. I love the hot hot spiral! I really like your idea of combining different quilting designs to come up with a new design. I think I'm going to play with that on my next project. Have a super day!

  2. The retreat looks like a lot of fun. Thanks for doing the video.

  3. I love the hot, hot spiral. I think I might consider it for her hair.

  4. I love how you are experimenting with combinations. I love the hot, hot, flaming spiral!

  5. Leah, this hot, hot spiral looks great and something I could handle. Thank you for all the time and thought you out into your videos.

  6. Love the short cut. Looks great on you. (Because I know you wanted to know that!) LOL
