After I created my first Twister pattern, Jack, I created a Christmas Tree called Merry Twistmas. This quilt was much larger than Jack, at 55″ x 61″. Joelee had it hanging right inside the store when you walked in, which was really cool. This one also was very popular in the shop. You can’t tell on the white, but there are 12 or 13 different white fabrics used, and multiple greens and reds.
For Valentine’s Day, Love at First Twist was released (and I owe major credit to my friend Sam for naming all of these. I tell him the holiday and pattern, and he gives me its name). For the background, there were 4 colors used (they blend together).
This was the waste from cutting out the twisted pieces. I think it looks pretty cool. I cut out the squares and … did something with them.
Lastly, is Patriot’s Pinwheel. For something different, I did this as a table runner. Usually, I avoid the Civil War Reproduction fabrics. I prefer the brighter and less tiny pattern fabrics. The reds and blues were from a Jo Morton line and they were too pretty to pass up.
A close up:
These 3 plus Jack are all available on my Etsy. My ultimate goal is to design one for every month. I have about half of the designs finished and the other half are ideas already. One of my 2015 goal is to release at least 4 more Twister designs so that will be a Q3 project.
Also, I’m toying with the idea of the double twister. I saw this in a book… you make a regular Twister quilt then cut it up again and resew it again. I made a (small) top once and it looks pretty awesome, but I don’t know if that’s ever going to happen again…
