Hi Michael
Thank you for the kind words. I was very pleased how it all came out.  It is my own quilt (I currently don’t quilt for others), which I am putting in a fund raising auction for our local rod and gun club.   Yes you can post my pictures  if you like.   You can also use what you may from this email.
I use swirls a lot, it is my go to for a lot of quilts, this picture just shows the quilting better as my friend took the picture, and there was great lighting.
It does not take long to figure out, I load the quilt either lengthwise (if I want the swirls that way) or sideways. (Head of the quilt to the right, or left depending on the effect I want)  This one I did lengthwise, so that when you stood at the front of the machine (Liberty), you would look at the quilt the correct way.  The only problem I had was to adjust the board again once the bulk on my take-up roller was hitting the back of the machine throat, but once adjusted no problem.  For this quilt I used Wonder clear invisible thread on the top, and Essential cotton thread on the back. ( from Connecting Threads).  The fabric is from Rushin Tailor Quilt shop in Alaska,  (I combinee 2 kits with added fabric for my vision) and warm and natural is the batting.  Finished size was 108” x 114”.  It goes to auction this weekend, so will see what it brings. 
I absolutely love the movement that the swirls board gives to a quilt. 
Once again Michael thanks,  and thank you for your wonderful product.

"I love my basic CL but I have to admit that the one MOST POPULAR template is the CL Swirls. In the last week, or so, I have quilted 7 quilts with that one, and just received 2 more in the mail to do. It's really easy, and looks amazing on all quilts. "

This was pieced by Cynthia and Circle Lord Swirls Board was a purrrfect choice for this quilt! A great quilt for our island life here on Amelia Island!!!

I just completed this quilt with the Circle Lord Swirls boards and the experience was a bit unique.  

My customer brought me the quilt and a fluffy polar fleece blanket for the back.   We discussed this and I suggested Hobbs Polydown batting after considering a lightweight cotton, the Hobbs  or nothing at all.   For thread, I used Bottom Line thread in the bobbin and King Tut on top, and I raised my hopping foot.
I also used the 'push button thingy' and bobbin cam so that I could work from the front.  I think it came out kind of nice.  Certainly - the back is very interesting.  Here are some pictures....

Swirls Quilt by Angie

I recently did this whole cloth Batik quilt for our granddaughter. She is off to her first year of college and wanted a durable yet pretty quilt for her dorm room bed.  She picked this berry colored Batik which reverses to a burgandy shade of Batik.  It will get a lot of wear & tear as she and her college friends will be studying, sitting and eating on the bed much of the time I'm sure!  Here are some pictures.  I used one of my favorite Circle Lord long boards, "Swirls".  Warm n' White batting.

Thank you for making such a great product that I enjoy using sew-much!
