    I just bought this new template and couldn't wait to try it. So off to my stash I went (Can't go too far when you live in an RV :) ). I grabbed what I could find that had sort of similar tones and that were at least 10 inches square. These pieces of fabric I couldn't imagine ever using again.

    I sewed 36 of these together and put on a muslin boarder. The first picture shows this. Then I started cutting with the template.

    After sewing everything together I have about 30 4 inch blocks that I couldn't imagine wasting so I cut these in half and used them for the boarder.

    This isn't completed but what a fun project. Couldn't wait to share. Now I have to find someone to donate this to. You can only have so many quilts in an RV and I think my children may already have too many. :)

    Gorgeous!! I just bought the Twister template and am anxious to give it a try :)

    BTW...you can "donate" it to me...I'd love to have it :) :)

    My DH and I use to be "full-timers" in our RV. It was a lot of fun :) You have to be VERY creative how you store things and downsize a LOT!!

    I was just in a class at my LQS today and signed up for a twister class. The instructor got a wooden photo tray at CVS and made a little twister quilt to go into it under the glass. Really clever. You can switch out the 'runner's too. I just ordered some trays from CVS.com because they were out of them at our store. If you want to find them, they are called the Sarah Payton wooden photo trays.

    Your quilt is lovely. Sorry,didn't mean to hijack your thread but just got overly excited.
