TWISTER QUILT IN THE MAKING
Decided to give my Lil Twister Ruler a shot!
36 charms (5" squares) sewn and ready to get twisted!
Here goes nothing! I placed my little twister ruler, took a deep breath, held it and went for the cut.
After holding my breath for the entire first two rows, I began to breath easy as I saw it take its form.
Not too shabby.
Viola! Twister quilt top is finished. Although I like the way it turned out I now know using fabric that is too busy doesn't allow for the twist to show up as clearly as if the fabric was less busy. This will be a wall hanging or table topper. I also have the large twister ruler which I will be making a twin quilt from, sew now off to the fun part - picking fabric for that project!
ONSIE BABY QUILT TOP
When I found this onsie pattern I thought to myself it's perfect!
I set out to find some colorful fabric and since I am making this quilt for a baby boy
I thought the dinosaur fabric would be super cute!
This is a gift for a little special someone coming in May.
Close up of the Onsie Blocks. Aren't they just adorable!
Another onsie quilt. This one I was commisioned for. Love the way it turned out. I will be sandwiching, binding and quilting this one this weekend.
ROOSTER BLOCK UPDATE
I finished all my decorative stitching now all I have left to do is the binding and hang it on my kitchen wall.
UFO IN MY ARCHIVES - LOST AND FOUND
Ever started a project and put it away only to have forgotten about it?? Well this is what I discovered in a box when looking through my fabrics for another project. It was cut fabric for a class I took years ago when I was a newbie at quilting. :) I don't have the pattern but I remember what the quilt is supposed to look like sew I can figure it out from there. I sewed all 5 rows. Now I need to sew on sashing with cornerstones and add the borders. I will then have to take a trip to my local quilt shop to buy the perfect backing fabric. This one will be all for me!
3 of the 5 rows to my UFO.
Sew as you can see I was very busy this weekend. Oh and did I mention the Mother's Day Mystery Gift is all set to be won! Drawing this Sunday - May 12th so tell all your friends about it sew they too can have a chance to win. My daughter Samantha will be picking one lucky name out of a bag sew stay tuned!
