Little Twister

I just had to to try the Little Twister when I seen it at my LQS the other night.It is ok for small projects.I am not so sure about doing a whole quilt.The template I purchased was a 3.5" square and they have one for 10" squares,which might be better/faster.This is how it makes a whirly gig pinwheel Photobucket
Since I wanted to see how it turned out I thought...hotpads would be great! Adding a border and it is the perfect size.This one is already finished,Sorry about how it is chopped up.I need to work on getting square pictures.Photobucket
Now that the 2 baby quilts I was working on are finished I have been trying my hand at the wonky letters. Photobucket Can ya tell what word I was going for?... Could be Christian(my sons name)...Nah, really I was trying Christmas..I wanted to incorporate the word into borders...but I did not think the quilt was wonky enough and it would have distracted somewhat.Now that means I have to do a really scrappy/wonky quilt.Here is the said quilt minus cats and borders.Photobucket
Tonight I am going to use my 50% off coupon at Joanns to get more Insul-Bright..after making several sets of potholders, I think I need some new ones too.Happy Stitching

Finish your letters and put them on the back of your Christmas quilt. This way you can practice and have a keepsake at the same time.

I am working on a top now that reminded me of you. could use your imput when you have time. cw

I bought both the small and large ruler for the Twister, along with the pattern book and have yet to do anything with them. I need TIME and energy. Your christmas quilt looks wonderful!!!

Oh, I love your Christmas quilt. I am so tired of all of the Christmas fabric I purchased on clearance several years ago. I really would like some of the new fun bright colors like you have. So after Christmas this year, that is what I will be looking for. No santa's or snowmen, etc.
