Lil Twister

I just finished putting my rows together for my Lil Twister quilt top. I'm using Kate Spain's Good Fortune charm squares. However, I decided to off set each square with a solid light blue so each colored square is easier to see. I really like how it came out. It needs to be squared off and ironed.

I'm not sure about borders. It's only 32 inches square so I'm thinking of using 2 solid borders and one wider border. I don't think it will be a very large quilt. It should be easy to machine quilt!

I have a baby shower to go to in a few weeks and have been working on knitted baby booties. I should be able to post them very soon. I'm hoping to concentrate on my hexagons after the booties are done.

Tonight is our last meeting of our quilt guild. We end the year with a banquet. It's so nice not to have to cook. My husband is away on a golf trip so it's perfect timing!

  1. Aww the blue sets the entire quilt, so lovely. And I can't wait to see how you machine quilt it. Will you free-motion quilt? :) Have fun at your banquet, it sounds lovely.

  3. You are right. Using the light blue solid between each printed charm really sets off the twisted blocks. Good job.

  5. That is so cute. I have never made a twister quilt but I really like yours. Would make a great baby quilt with a couple of borders.

  6. What a fun and cheery quilt! I like the sky blue fabric you used for the outer squares. It's a great color combination.
