    And two shall become one ... And the greatest of these is love

    This quilt is so lovely that I am not sure I can gift it LOL. Guess I will make another for me . Picture shows one corner of a queen size. Each large twister is a different batik. Two diagonal corners have nine small twisters. Thanks for looking

    Thought I might quilt it this week. Then I had a brainstorm to incorporate the wedding invitation on the back sooooo quilting will be delayed. Here's a bigger picture. Inspired by photo on tamarackshack.blogspot.com/2012/11/twister-quilt.html

    This came out awesome. I have been wanting to try this out for awhile. Thanks for showing us just how cool this pattern is! Love what you did with the border as well.

    Love everything about this quilt. While you're making one for yourself, would you please make one for me?

    So glad you posted both pictures! Love the border treatment - already a fan of the twister look, and using the two different sizes really added to your quilt. A real beauty....
