    My Latest Finished Quilt, Twisted Pinwheels

    This silly quilt was a true labor of love. Started by one of my quilting buddies, who got disenchanted with the project and put it away. When I asked her is she had a Twisted Pinwheel Template (She has everything) she said yes and a started project. I agreed to finish it for her as a Charity Quilt. This pattern is a little different from others I have seen here on the board. Every other block is a tone on tone white, which I think really makes the pinwheels stand out. I had a tough time with the assembly of this one as I had no pattern instructions and didn't pay attention when I was cutting out the pieces. Ended up with like a 500 piece puzzle, that took me a week to assemble back together. The blocks were cut 6" and the 'homemade' template was 4-1/4". This was all FMQ, with lazy daisy designs in each pinwheel. The borders were done with a FM vine design. Took me a week to FMQ. Note that the binding is with a flange, that I learned out here on the board, was very easy to do, and I think added to the quilt. This quilt went to a local church for their "Prayers and Squares" program.....

    It is very pretty and the quilting is beautiful.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place...the End Times.

    great job. I don't generally care for the twister quilts, but this one is quite different and lovely.

    Beautiful quilt! What an accomplishment for you and her. I like all the variety of fabrics. I agree, the binding does add to the quilt. Lucky the person who receives this quilt.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Your quilt is lovely.

    I treasure the quilt I received from my church just like I know someone will cherish your quilt.

    For those who don't know: Prayers and Squares is an international group - free to all - is on the 'net -for churches or groups of faith to support those in need of prayers.

    Even though it caused frustration, this quilt turned out very pretty.
