    I've seen many members' Turning Twenty quilts on here and like the look but I don't get why the quilts are named that. (I don't have a pattern and have no idea how to make one.) Could someone simply enlighten my? Are they called that because you use twenty fat quarters? Or do you have to actually turn something twenty times? Thanks in advance for the feedback. :D

    Like she said, 20 fat quarters are in the full size quilt.

    Welcome to the board from Southern California!

    So the 'Twenty' comes from the number of fat quarters. Where does the turning come from?

    The finished result looks so simple. Is a pattern really necessary?

    The patterns show you how to cut the fat quarters. there isn't much waste in the process. I turn '9' for a quilt the size of 50" square and it is perfect for Project Linus. The beginning Turning 20 books have large peices, 3 pieces per fat quarter. The later ones have more, 11 for some of them from each fat quarter. I do better with a book or a pattern sometimes. Each block is 16" square and you can turn them anyway you want because the sizes are the same.
