    trying something new

    I just got the mini twister ruler and had to try it out. Found out I have to be really careful with the fabric I choose. Thought I had a good contrast but the twisters don't show up well. Next time I will use fabric with little to no pattern and very contrasting colors.

    I also wanted to try out my new dresden plate ruler, now I will have to decide what the background should be and the center circle.

    Very pretty! I know we don't NEED new rulers but aren't they fun? I want to get the new X block ruler for my next fun thing.

    You are correct about the Twister ruler -- too much work not to have the pinwheels show up. I really love your fabric choices though, they are totally out of my box. The dresden place is beautiful!

    They are both nice. For the Twister, if you use a background the doesn't have as much going on in it, your twists will pop more. You can then use a busier border print. Nice job on both of them!

    I cut the squares for a twister quilt today, hope mine have enough contrast - I am using prints from the Tonga Pink Lemonade line and alternated the brights with one of the lighter yellow prints.

    I also figured out it would be better to use an odd number of squares and rows so that I could have a bright square in each corner.

    I love the colors you used in both of these projects. Is that from a special collection or just your own great taste? Yummy!!!

    I think you did a great job with both and agree that maybe the background fabric for the mini twister would look best if it was a solid color. The fabric you used is very pretty!!
