Now I'm making swirls in all the negative space. I practiced in my sketch book first to see what kind of scale I like best and how to continue to the next swirl. Then I just moved into the game with the quilt.
I can tell I'm new at swirling. I'm using my Tru Stitch regulator and it whirs at me when I move at different speeds going thru the curves and straighter parts. I think it sounds like an angry chipmunk. But the beauty of the regulator is that even when it's angry, it is making my stitches all the same size. I know from experience doing curves, that I would be having bigger stitches in the curves because I move faster then. So I think the Tru Stitch is a good addition.
