    I decided to make a themed wreath each month for my back door in the garage. It is how we always enter the house.
    Here is my Valentine wreath.

    Pretty, pretty. I made a St. Patrick's Day one for my sister - maybe I'll make another for myself as I like your idea of entryway art. Did you do any quilting on it? I did SID on runners but didn't dare touch my Christmas wreath since I'm a beginner with FMQ & didn't want to ruin it.

    Would you mind sharing your layout of the fabric so that some of us could borrow it and use it to make ourselves one also. I love it. I am a twister fan and this looks way too cool.

    I am not putting it on the garage, I am putting it inside the garage on the door that goes into the house. Safe from weather but a pleasant greeting. Glad you like it.

    The patter is:
    2 reds (A) (B) and 1 white fabric
    5 inch squares
    9 white squares
    8 squares of one red fabric (A)
    8 squares of other red fabric (B)

    Row 1: 1 White, 1A, 1B, 1A, 1White
    Row 2: 1 A, 1B, 1 white, 1B, 1A
    Row 3: 1B, 3 White, 1B
    Row 4: 1A, 1B, 1White, !B, 1A (same as Row 2)
    Row 5: 1 White 1A, 1B, 1A, 1 White (same as row 1)

    Sew rows together and add a three inch white border all around.
    Use the twister template to cut, then resew cut squares together, one row at a time. Lots of waste. You will end up with six square across and six squares down.
    You do have a Twister template don't you?

    Looks great.......nice work!
    I'm still trying to make my wreath into a heart shape.
    Has anyone figured it out yet?
