    Ok I will try again this am to load my latest project. This is a Twister Christmas quilt. Most of the piecing was done on my FW or 301, at home I used my Singer 319 in treadle. I haven't quilted, or bound it yet.

    This is a two part quilt. The first part using the 5" squares had to be made into a quilt top. Then I had to cut the whole thing up - row by row - using a Twister ruler. Each row had to be carefully placed in the order it was cut up - sewn together so nothing got out of place to make a second quilt top that has the twister pin wheel look. I am not sure I'd want to do one again - unless it was much smaller. Making a quilt top, cutting it up, re-assembling it is a little crazy!Attachment 365888

    It came out great! Make sure you keep your scraps. You could make a smaller version using a smaller Twister or Primitive Pinwheel ruler from your scraps.

    Wonderful job! You've given me an idea on what to make with all the Christmas fabric I have in my stash.
