OMG: Wonky Spirals in Red, Black and White!

My February goal for One Monthly Goal over at Elm Street Quilts was to finish my third Wonky Spirals quilt top. I started piecing this version when I taught this pattern in a class at Bernina Sewing Center & Quilt Shop in Kalamazoo. 

I used Bittersweet from Paintbrush Studio's Painter's Palette Solids collection as my red background, and then paired it with black and white prints from my stash. 

I got addicted to making the mini spiral blocks--they're 6" square finished--so I added eight of them into my quilt top. I love what they add to the design! 

Now to quilt this...!

Tic Tac Toe Tutorial

Every year around Valentine's Day, I pull out my fabric Tic Tac Toe board. 

The game itself isn't valentine-y, but the colors are! And then I got inspired and changed the Os into it's ready for February 14th!

OMG: RED blocks!

My February One Monthly Goal (thank you, Patty @ Elm Creek Quilts!) is, appropriately, red (and black and white)!
I started these red, black and white wonky spiral blocks to use as samples for my Wonky Spirals quilt class. I now have about nine made/almost finished. My goal for February is to complete the quilt top. 

Here's a look at my other two Wonky Spirals quilts; 
this version uses sashing and borders to help the spirals pop out even more. 

And the original design, shown here on my pattern cover;

I've got a little different layout planned for this third version...
can't wait to see how it turns out!
