Do you spiral? Once you can spiral, you can make an endless array of motifs. I like to call this pattern the Spiral Flower Border.
Just add leaves to your spiral and you have a lovely flower! I used this motif repeatedly in Olivia’s Doodle Quilt (for more photos-see this post).
I’ve added a row of the spiral flowers to my practice piece…
I think I will bind this for another little vase quilt–any takers?
Below is a detail of the reverse spiral with echo quilting on each side…another detail that adds a little something:
Now I need your ideas/help...There must be a better way for me to post the drawing of a motif. I currently draw the pattern onto paper and then photograph the paper.

Photoshop?…I have so many motifs to share, I’m a little stymied by the best method…
