Spiral Galaxy M101



Hi Everyone, I took the suggestion from several of you to capture my galaxy  pieces (from the previous challenge, Turner effect) by overlaying black netting.  I was surprised to note how little I lost in the white areas.  I learned from this.  Thank you!!!  So then I was able to quilt it, using silver metallic thread in a spiral design that followed the galaxy image itself.  Really fun.   Sandi Nehlsen-Cannarella.

This is an awesome piece! I love how the design and the quilting draw ones eye to the center. Being slightly off center adds interest. Great job.

Even better now that it's quilted Sandi. The spiral stitching added tremendous movement to the piece. Well done!
