Swirls Galore

I sent a quilt kit home with my friend.  She has discovered the magic of using the serger for quilt piecing.  I just like that I have another set of hands to help with Quilts for Kids.  This is the Jumbo Coins quilt I modified to be more Quilts for Kids friendly. 
When I set up to quilt it, swirls were recommended as the quilting design.  I'm all about the swirls, so I went with it. 
I need to practice my swirls, though.  I have a tendency to make them huge.  Not everyone likes swirls that are almost 6 inches across. 

I should be able to get the binding on this one soon so I can get the binding finished.  Maybe I should revisit the machine finished binding... I'll think about it.
I've been so horrible about posting to the blog, I figured I should share this little wonder.  This is what I got in September.  My charm packs from Fat Quarter Shop's charm pack club.  Every month I find new inspiration in my mailbox.  Love it.  Also pictured is the fabulous pack of hand dyed fabrics I received as a prize from Quilting Colors for the Pet Quilts contest over at Quilting Gallery.  I love these vibrant colors.
