This Week's Project

I can't seem to stop making these fun 'Lil Twister projects! I saw it done as a mini quilt in a quilt shop in Sacramento last week made with 3" squares and a 2 3/8" 'ruler' (which I made with a cardboard

template). They had it framed in a beautiful, glass-front frame and I thought it would make such a lovely gift, country store or silent auction item!

Here's what it looked like with the squares sewn together, measuring 16" x 20"

. . . . and here's the finished product. It measures 12" x 16". (That is a regular, 45mm, rotary cutter there.)




Thanks to my email friend LuAnn for the
Charm Pack for this project!!

I bought one of the rulers a while ago, but haven't used it yet. Whenever I see a lovely twister quilt--like yours--I ask myself why not ;-)

Very cute, and it will look great in the frame.

love your twister quilts. I have the templates, just haven't used them yet. Also the border on one of the other ones you did is really neat!

Nice job!! I love the mini idea as my small projects seem to grow to almost queen size before my eyes!! The colors are great!
