    Twisted trellis

    I thought this was an easy pattern to do for a quick Christmas pressie for my friend in nursing home but found it challenging enough. It is actually blood red , hunter green and black and takes a little bit of studying as I only had a picture and not sizes. I am going to use polyester wadding and Sid round snowball blocks to make them sit out. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you for looking.Name:  image.jpg

    ​That is going to be a striking quilt! I can see how the pieces would be hard to keep straight, good job!

    Great job! I can see where a design wall/floor is needed to keep everything straight.

    That is going to be a very beautiful striking quilt. You are doing great if you only had a picture to go by. Please share a picture when it is all finished.

    Beautiful quilt. I don't know how you did it without a pattern. You really did a great job.

    That is going to be a gorgeous quilt. I think I might use a metallic or variegated thread in some sort of leaf design. Whatever you decide will be lovely

    Beautiful quilt. I think I've made a similar one called Lovers Knot; but you did a fantastic job figuring it out from a picture. Nicely done.

    Terrific quilt And you did a fabulous job using a picture as a guide, and I also like your tag line. I use this saying on all the baby quilts I make.

    Very striking quilt. Amazing feat having no pattern. It would be quite the challenge to put all the snowball blocks together with enough of the correct colors and correct placement for the edges. Great job and a lovely gesture. It will definitely be a bright spot in the nursing home.
