I made this runner just a week or two ago in a different fabric.  I really like the pattern and I needed a gift for a friend that I worked with for a number of years before we both retired.  She and her husband are coming to dinner in a week or so and a gift needed done right away.  [You can see my first project done in this pattern on my Featured Post]   
I got the first block done and then realized I did not want to spend a ton of time quilting the runner in the same spiral that I did the first runner.
Blue painters tape makes wonderful straight line quilting runs.  I was reminded of this by a fellow blogger.  I usually use Frixon pens, but they do not show up well on the dark fabric I used for the centers of my blocks.  
The quilting went fast and really nice and straight.  
And the gift is done.  I love the gold block, so used that fabric for the binding.  Each blocks quilting was done in a color to match the outer fabrics.
