Most of my sewing was done at the library. What a great little retreat. The project this time was the twister block. It was a lot of fun to see the projects be completed. One person was inspired (or guilted) into making the miniature version for the FW quilt.
The partial quilt on the bottom left is Nancy's. The funniest part is that I had brought that green to the retreat for my FW quilt, and it worked out perfectly for her twister. I love it when those kinds of accidents happen.
There were lots of opinions on color choices.
Several people contributed to my scrap bucket which I put on the cutting table. This is a twister skeleton. There is a bias square left after the twister blocks are cut.
This is the remains of the skeleton after I have cut 2" squares. There is not much left. If you want bias squares, you can get 2 1/2" out of them, but I cut 2" squares on the straight grain.
This is my finished twister minus the borders. What do you think? Do you like the red or the green? I am not too sure about the larger border either. Perhaps it is because I only have about 5 floral pieces in my stash. I have to admit that it looks better in the picture than I thought it did.
