I've been a busy bee !!!!

I've been a busy beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


A simple selection from the charm pack, sewn 5 by 5 and then a 3" border added.....


home made twister template, becomes this....DA DA !!!!!
Looking at other pictures, the twisters can be different ways depending on which way you start with the ruler, do these look weird ??? my little 4 patch this morning was the *original* way, I'll have to make sure I mark the template next time...


It's most definitely shrunk quite a bit, not sure how costly it would be to make a few of them, although this isn't a full charm pack, full charm would be 7 by 6 wide with a border... and from what I understand a layer cake makes a decent size quilt...

Anyway, border assistance needed, I've got more of the green/red flower but nothing else, need to order some I think.... I was thinking perhaps a 1inch blue border, then a 2 or 3 inch green border finishing with a larger 3 or 4 inch white border and red binding..... means a fabric order

  1. I LOVE it! I'm glad you practiced and did it. And thanks for all the measurements. I haven't bought the twister, b/c it seems a little expensive to only make 1 thing. I would like to mark my own rulers, just like you!

  2. I still can't get my head around such a simple ruler can make such a lovely pattern! Not sure what colour I would go with, I have exactly the same problem every single time I do a quilt!!! x
