The next 'more learning curves' 2nd of 9

Here is the second of the 9 squares that will make up More Learning Curves. I might have to rethink that name. To be honest, I hadn't given this piece a name as I considered it a trial for a larger piece - for which I don't have a name either!! And talking of names I haven't got one for the above motif as it isn't really an original. So let's call it 'swirl'. It doesn't close to form a circle and requires a bit of travelling back along the tight scroll to form the next swirl. It is very easy to open up or sew tighter giving a good variety of density. It is a brighter green that last week's 'hour glass'. I was thinking loosely of autumn colours choosing greens, reds and golds.

Thanks for dropping by...

  1. Another great design! Its very fun to see the variety that you come up with. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This is a stunning and beautiful design. Thank you for the inspiration.

  3. How about "underwater path" as a name for this pattern? It reminds me of tentacles of a squid, but that just sounds a bit more scary than I intend.
    I absolutely love your FMQ!!!

    1. ...or "ocean current"?

  4. Wonderful! I like the variety of sizes! lt looks great!

  5. Love the name ocean current for this, fits it very well. Very cool design!

  6. This one makes me think of feathers. I think the reason is more of the flow, than the actual pattern. As usual, another lovely design.

  7. what a great design. It flows and curves, with little spirals. What a winner.
