    1. Hi Gramy! I did a couple of things to help uniform the spirals...(btw...your email to me is a 'no reply' just so you know) I traced a 15" spiral onto a large piece of paper, then i used Glad Press and Seal, laid it over the top and retraced. I then took the GP&S and stuck it on my loaded quilt top. It has a nice light adhesive that keeps it from shifting and i stitched through it using a 10" Boomerang arc by Deloa Jones to guide my hopper foot around the spiral. It's not perfect, but i'm pleased. :)
