    Twister Patterns

    Hi,

    Ok, I have been bitten by the Lil Twister Quilt Pattern Bug. I picked up the 3.5" template. Now that I am home I wish I would have found a book to go with it.

    Are there any patterns out there to make a baby quilt? I understand that there is a big down size once you cut out your template pieces from your original block lay out. So, I am wondering how big the original block lay out has to be for a baby quilt using the 3.5 template.


    Thanks for any tips, can't wait to make something with this little piece of plastic.

    Thank you, I went to the site, very nice directions. I am going to try and make it 48" square to start with and hope I end up with something in the range of 30-36" for a finished twister baby quilt. Then I can add more border if needed.

    A quilt the size you want for a baby using all baby fabrics. That would make a beautiful baby quilt.

    ​My favourite Twister baby quilt pattern I've seen, is one done in a heart shape in the middle. I think it was posted on QB but I can't remember the title.

    If you have the small twister, it cuts 3.5" square (so 3" finished). So, for your 36" finsihed quilt, you need 12x12 blocks = 144 blocks. The blocks start at 5", so you need 144 5" squares to end up with a 36" quilt from your twister ruler.
