    Lil' Twister quilt with applique

    I continue to really like the Lil' Twister template and made this quilt in a type of Around the World pattern. Then I added some appliqued flowers to add some color. I have more pictures on my blog. I would post more but I think they are too big to post here.

    I love your colors. Did you use a pattern. I made one with the lg twister and my color combination was awful.... wondering how you made yours... Really like it

    Very pretty! Lots of nice blue color and the background scene really sets it off. Did you drive it all the way down to the water just to take the picture? Makes me feel lazy hanging mine on a clothesline in the basement when I need to take a pic. Ann in TN

    I made up my own pattern to use the fat quarters I had in that grouping and used my Sizzix for the flowers.
    I did a quick sketch in EQ7 also.

    Stunning and beautifully styled....beats my usual thing of draping over the bed or holding up with my shoes poking out.

    Thanks everyone, I thought the bright appliqued flowers really gave it a different look.

    I really love this quilt. The colors are so refreshing. I need to get my template out and try my hand at a twister.
