Free Motion Monday – Spiral Rose

May Flowers are here!  I have an easy free motion quilting design to complement your floral quilt.  This design works well in a single block or as a large central motif.

This is my Garden Twister quilt, made from a variety of floral prints.  For the free motion quilting, I knew the spiral rose would delight those who look closely without detracting from the cheery garden I created with the flowered pinwheels using the Lil’ Twister ruler.

Quilting a Spiral Rose

I started in the center of my quilt and stitched a simple spiral.  As I moved outward, I began to stitch with slightly wavy lines.  As you near the edge of your space, or your rose is as big as desired, you might choose to add a few leaves.


With this simple floral free motion design, you can quickly grow a bountiful garden!
