I'm still Twisting!

lindaoh_gwMarch 12, 2011

I used the leftover fabric from the Twister quilt that I made last week to make a smaller version today. I have both sizes of the Twister template and the smaller size was the right size to use with the leftover fabric. It was a little tricky and I had to even up each block after I had cut it but it worked!

The leftovers were 3 1/2. The pattern calls for 5 inch squares but I was determined to make it work. I will use the smaller version as a wall hanging in my sewing room.

That's cute.Great way to use the leftovers.
How difficult did you find working with all the bias edges? No matter how gentle I am with bias edge blocks, I still get too much stretch. It's a bit frustrating. Are there tips/hints for reducing the stretch?

Great way to use up the leftover fabric, Linda! Do you listen to Chubby Checkers while you sew? lol

NICE! I think the "twisters" are so clever.

Sharon, I think there would be even more twisting in the quilt if I listened to Chubby Checkers while quilting. LOL
Barbara, I know I am addicted. I started another quilt from a layer cake yesterday.
Today, I took the little 1 3/4 " leftover squares and made a mini quilt. It's 11 1/2 inches made of 1 1/4" squares and borders. I'll post a picture later.
