I'm really surprised by how different this swirl looks from the last one. This one looks like icing, and I can just imagine sticking my finger into it.
It is actually not exactly the same as the blue on cream; this one has hexagons and squares, not hexagons and diamonds. The stitching is closer together on this one. You can see less of the background. And I found out that you can add stitches (out of order) to fill up gaps.
The first one was a SAL from my Talk Temari group, this one was from the Inspirations magazine; thank you Marj for the loan of the magazine. I think, though, the main difference (improvement) is because of the practice, not from any difference in instructions.
I like this pattern, it is very nice to stitch on, because you can get in a zone. There are a lot of variations too; I think I will be trying some. You can stitch different shapes, and with more than one color.
