Clam Shells

It's currently way too hot for quilting. It's not the sewing itself that's the issue, it's the thought of going near a hot iron that's soooo not appealing.
Still, last weekend I pulled a late night (aka hey, look it's finally less than 30deg C in my appartment) ironing session to shape the clam shells, and the rest of the sewing is blessedly ironing free (or nearly so), so putting the pillow together was an option. 
The pillow is 50 x 50 cm (20 inches). I did some spiral quilting (which was super fun to do.  I see more of that in my future)
Not sure if I want to do the clam shell technique again (don't see a whole quilt of that, that's sure), but at least I did it once, so for now it's out of the system.

Your clam shells look great, and the spiral quilting is just right, I feel.

I recently did spiral quilting on a wall hanging, and although I had a couple of teething problems, of my own making, it worked out well in the end. I would like to try it again too.
