Dancing Butterfly Design #23 - Hot Hot Spiral

The weather has definitely warmed up which makes it the perfect time to share this design - Hot Hot Spiral! This simple independent design is an easy combination of Sharp Stippling and Basic Spiral and will fill your quilts with gorgeous, flame-y spiral-y texture.

I originally taught this design in the Express Your Love Quilt Along and stitched it into a version of the quilt that I still haven't finished.

 Hot Hot Spiral was just one design in a series that I quilted into the orange sections of the quilt. It's really fun seeing the totally different effect when the same design is stitched on a larger scale in the Dancing Butterfly Quilt:

Hopefully you can see just how versatile this free motion quilting design can be, no matter what style of quilt you use it in! Let's learn how to quilt Hot Hot Spiral in this new video from the Dancing Butterfly Quilt Along:

Only one more design for this project left! Swing back next Monday to find the last video in this series and remember you can join in this fun quilt along anytime by picking up a copy of the Dancing Butterfly Quilt Pattern.

Let's go quilt,
