TWISTER

Have you "twisted" yet? Michelle made a couple back in October while she was at a retreat so I thought I'd give it a try. WELL....I gathered up some charm packs as well as a layer cake with some yardage and while I was with Michelle at a retreat 2 weeks ago, I took my twister for a spin....I LOVE IT! I can't believe that you start off with all these 5 inch squares sewn together and after you start cutting, this is what you end up with!

This quilt is made with a Fig Tree layer cake.


I'm going to add a skinny border around it then also add a wide floral border which will make it full size!


As I look at the red and white one I realize that I should have moved some of the squares around but you live and learn...... I'm off to connect the blocks and get it on my coffee table by the end of the week.

I have done the twister quilt in a couple of sizes. I love the red and white one. That may need to be added to my list.

I really like the twister pattern and have made about 6 assorted items using both sized rulers.You should try the Christmas wreath pattern. It is very impressive.

My cousin & I just bought a "twister" pattern & the tool. Looking forward to trying it. Your quilts give us the inspriation (& courage) to get started.
