This one is done by using the mini twister tool (tool size is 2 ¼ by 2 ¼ )

When all twister pieces are sewn together, it measures approx. 20 by 25 inches.(without Borders and Binding)
Now, you can add borders the size you like and finish your quilt the way you like.

I'm new at quilting other than baby quilts using 6x8 blocks years ago. Now as a retired senior with plenty of spare time I'm wanting to really get into quilting. I have been purchasing material for the past few years in prep for these "retirement years". Now my problem is HOW to get started. I have enough material to share with 10 other quilters, lol, plenty of books with lots of hints yet nothing on how best to prepare my "stash" so I can decide what to use when ready to make

It was last months free pattern, looked like ribbons going in a circle, was paper pieced with a variety of color. Do you know where I can get and print the pattern, what designed posted it, etc. Thanks for your help.

Wednesday 6:AM windy ridge cottage,
What a lovely morning! Right now one could not ask for better weather or temp. That will change later today, we are supposed to get temp's up in the 100s for the next 5 days or so, at least is is a dry heat, no humidity as yet.
I am out side at my new patio table in a really comfortable chair, I think I am really going to like this set. The love seat, coffee table and 2 other chairs are still in box's in the garage, but I have the 3 piece bistro
