    Kaffe Fasset Twister

    Years ago, I was fascinated by Kaffe Fasset and began collecting fabric, with no particular design in mind. I made a couple of twister projects, using the smaller template. This was this first time I made a large twister, which starts with 10 inch squares. I bordered the twists with yellow fabric and added a pink flange, which did not quilt as well as I would have liked. The borders were improvised with bright pink and flower. The turquoise outer border was fabric I had fussy cut flowers for other projects. It was nice to see all of the flowers in this design. I pieced together all the leftovers and used them on the backing. The twisters have a windmill look to them, which adding the wildly swirls of the quilting, makes the whole thing look like it can take flight at any moment! I am always surprised at the places our quilting adventures take us. This quilt showed me "Tropical Winds" which is what I am going to call it.

    It's a great quilt and a great name!

    I am making my first twister quilt - it has been a challenge so I applaud your accomplishment even harder.

    Lovely. Yellow works great as a background for the prints.

    the quilt and the quilting are so very pretty
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
