    Ugh, done, I quilted the monster yesterday. Everything kind of went to you know where when I added the borders, which rippled, everything was so stretchy. Then I realized one side of backing was too short to flip for cheater binding and I had to add some fabric back on (thank goodness for the print, you really can't tell). I think it'll be good after a wash/dry. The thing that saved me from throwing the whole thing in the garbage was spray adhesive instead of basting/pinning, I love that stuff. I did SITD around some of the pinwheels & just outlined the borders. At any rate, I'm off to deliver it to the fire dept now & I hope it makes them some money & that someone I know wins it for a Christmas gift :)

    Anyone else so totally tired of looking at a quilt after you finally finish it? This has got to go, no matter how much I thought I'd want one like it for myself, no way, lol!

    I love this quilt! It is beautiful. I have the twister on my Christmas list. Is this quilt made with the small twister or the large one?

    It might have been a bear to do but it did turn out very pretty.

    Love b/w especially when it's popped with red. You did a fantastic job. I just finshed one that I quilted fine, but had many problems when I sent out to a longarmer (will post story shortly).

    I know they will love this quilt!! :-D

    This quilt will surely raise lots of $$ for the fire dept. Love the fabrics - esp. the 'flames' of red

    You may be sick of it but it's the prettiest one I have seen. Would like to enter the raffle because I would love the quilt. Can't see a thing wrong with it.

    one thing with these twisters, they are all on the bias and when putting on boarders you have to really measure thru the middle and make sure you don't get "lettuce leaves" as a quilt teacher once called it. Then it should lay quite flat...

    I love this quilt. I have made a few of the twister quilts and I made three for xmas presents for nieces. I love how you did the inset piece intthe middle with the borders and how you did the other borders around the edges. I would have not thought of doing that. Looks great.

    It is pretty and yes I too get tired of looking at the same quilt. Earlier this year I made three tops and used the same browns and oranges in all three. I was so tired of them I stuck them in the bottom of a box. Today my gd and dil pulled them out and thought they were pretty. I now have an order for a table runner and a stuffed dog from one of the oranges and one of the browns.

    it's Wonderful and, actually, the quilt really works with your bedroom. Perhaps you should hang onto it and offer something else to the fire department. lol...
