twister quilt and ready for new challenges in 2015

Even though it was not my goal to finish the twister quilt this year, I made it with a bit of luck (and time). I also have a name for this colorful piece : Indian Summer Quilt. The red and yellow hues remind me of a wonderful sunny and windy autumn day when the leaves start to change their colors. Shimmer of green trees and sparkling blue water surface. It was fun to work with the twister tool : cut, piece, cut and piece the blocks.

The quilt has 12 blocks, each is 23″ x 23″. Quilted in straight lines with the walking foot with distance of 1/2″ between the stitches. When putting the quilt together, I have alternated the vertical and the horizontal stitch direction.

Now I have time to work on my Horizontal quilt and I have a custom quilt on order – with Drunkard’s Path block.

Wishing everybody a very happy 2015, Barbora

  1. I so needed the wonderfully warm colors of your quilt today. It’s gorgeous, and the back is striking as well, with the blue strips between the blocks.
