    Lil' Twister Wall Hanging UFO Finally Done!!!

    I fell in love with the twister quilts and started this one in early December of last year. I had it pin basted for months ... eye surgery ... other projects ... all kept me putting off the quilting of this twister. Finally ... I was able to get it done!!! I so enjoyed making this pattern. Lots of fun! Went looking for a quilt hanger on Tuesday ... couldn't find what I had in mind ... Thought I'd use wooden wall brackets - small ones - along with a dowel through a sleeve on the back. Well, the craft store I went to did not have any wooden wall brackets. Found the dowel and end caps only. Was really disappointed. Then I saw them ... clothes pins! All sizes! My mind started turning ( did you smell it burning?!) ... Bought 4 clothes pins and little hanging pieces that I nailed to the backside of each pin. I just love them! Think I'll give them a coat of paint. Not sure what color...have to think on it (oh no ... here comes some more burning!). Hung it proudly above my mother's sewing machine ... I call her "Tootsie" in honor of my mom! Hope you all like it as much as I do!

    What a fun wall hanging ! What about just staining the clothes pins- then they will go with everything

    Love the quilt!!! Great job. And what a neat idea to hang the quilt. I agree with sharonb, I would stain the clothes pins.

    I've never met a twister I didn't love. Cute machine and fun that you named her in honor of your mom. Peggy
    Happy quilting to all of my new friends on the quilting board http://pastimesquiltdesign.blogspot.com

    cute little quilt. I think the twisters look better miniaturized. Good job finishing up a UFO.

    That is a pretty twister quilt! Love the colors and I also think- stain the clothes pins.

    Found them in a store in Carson City, NV called Craft Market. Years ago it was a Ben Franklins store. Products are still the same. Great little store. They have beautiful material for quilting but the prices are out of site. Hope you have a Craft Market in your area.

    Tootsie is just beautiful, and I love your sense of humor.

    I, too, think staining would be the way to go. This little Twister is just the cutest little thing I've seen! And when I saw what it was hanging over, I thought, "What's my Featherweight doing on that lady's table?!?"! LOL! Are they fabulous or what?!?
