Machine Quilt Light Spiral #458

Ready to learn a fun machine quilting design that will be perfect for a quick Christmas project? Let's learn how to free motion quilt Light Spiral!

This beautiful design was included in the Dancing Butterfly Quilt Along, and today I feel like machine quilting this design on a much smaller scale. When quilted this way, the spirals get smaller and the lights can get bigger, making for a dramatic thread painted effect for your quilts. Learn how to stitch it in this new video:

I've been promising Josh a new set of hot mitts for pulling stuff out of the oven so today I sliced up some Insulbrite (heat reflective batting) and began machine quilting Light Spiral over the surface.
This looks super cute and the denser quilting design will hold this oven mitt together very sturdily so it lasts many years.

Do you have a special holiday themed project in the works?  Don't leave it until the very last minute! Aim to spend at least 15 minutes working on it every day and you'll definitely have it ready in time for Christmas.

Let's go quilt,

Leah Day
