Twist Along Step 2 and More Feathers

Here is my Twister Quilt top with a border. It was very easy to pick a fabric for the border since I just chose one of the fabrics from Butterscotch and Roses that I didn't use in the quilt. It's a gorgeous line of fabrics from Fig Tree Quilts for Moda. I'm a little excited and scared to actually cut the twister blocks. I'm just hoping I have enough contrast and that everything lines up correctly. I'm just waiting for Step 3 which will come at the end of this week.

I'm all caught up with my Mystery Quilt. I just have to iron and trim up the squares. Since I have a little time, I decided to try my free motion feathers again. I tried to add more feathers to the main feather I started with but I don't think I had enough space. It was fun and I may attempt a little feather on the next quilt I machine quilt.

Going back to my knitting for awhile. I've had a few busy days at work and feel like resting!


  1. Neat border, Rosemary; I am wondering about the contrast on mine, too. Well, we shall see....I really like your feathers--Nice!! I am resting also...a big, bad cold bug has come to visit....Julierose
