Did you fill in the pentagon and triangle yet? I hope you did, as it will help you understand the design. Below are my diagrams. I colored the one on the right so you can see the pentagon and the triangle. Spirals are sewn by paper piecing the main shapes: the pentagon is stitched as one unit and the triangle is stitched as another unit. Then they are sewn together to create one wedge-shaped unit. As you can see on the left, the two shapes intermingle and become one. The seam between the pentagon and triangle gets lost in the maze. The fabrics you choose will determine what parts of the design are emphasized.

You will notice that side B will also align with side B of the next wedge. Now you rotate this 60º wedge as one unit. See the difference in the two completed circles?
TIP: This is playtime. Have fun with it. As long as your basic shapes can be sewn together it will work. Believe it or not, this is "quilting" too...all part of the process.
I had so much fun playing that I have too many designs. I'll never have time in this life to get them all made into quilts!!
