    Yesterday a wonderful lady from our guild showed us how to do the lil twister. It was so much fun!!! I am so addicted to this! I had borrowed my sister's lil twister to do the workshop - she may not get it back!!! The possibilites are endless and it is absolutely amazing how they turn out. We had two ladies do theirs in 30's fabric - one was bordered in white the other in a darker green. They were beautiful - each had their own look. A couple of halloween ones - cute, cute, cute! I think I am ordering the larger one! i will try to post some pics if I can later. i took pics of just about everyone.

    I love the look of the twister but it does take time and you have to be careful not to get them mixed up. Which to me means I have concentrate more than I am able at times. I've only done a boarder for a wall hanging and it did make it stunning. have fun!!

    Yes you do have to concentrate. I did mine in just two colors (never again) because I wanted it to resemble a wreath when it was done. I ripped out about four times. But it did turn out nice. in fact i will probably be making at least two more (I found some light green squares in my sewing room - older calico type that i think would make a cute spring time wreath)

    I just finished my Twister quilt last week. I took a class and the very first cut I did, I had the ruler upside down. Instead of stopping to fix it right then I continued with the cutting--right side up. I spent 2 days fixing that one thing. Finally got it done and used this quilt to practice on the long arm. Turned out wonderful, and no I can't post a picture. Don't know how. They are fun to make.
