    Starting a Lil Twister Christmas Wreath

    Two of my fellow guild members and I have scheduled tomorrow to make our wreaths. We decided to have the piecing done so here is what I am starting with - I will post the results. I'm betting we have a wonderful time!

    It is hard to tell in this picture, but I am using some of my metallic stash for the red and white. I think it will give it a nice festive touch!

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I am hooked on the Twister done 2 wreaths, one table topper, and a mini wreath using the scrap squares from big wreaths. Have done 2 more dresser runners. What fun. One wreath I did like pattern the next I switched the red and green squares so that the outside of the wreath is green.

    REALLY Anxious to see how it turns out. I just bought both the small and large twisters.
