    quilt queen 2 - love the blue/white combo. You're very clever with your scraps esp. the pin cushion. I'm making a Lil Twister baby quilt now & don't think there'll be enough scraps for border - I see some potholders in the making!

    Great job. Thanks for showing the 'swiss cheese' fabric so we can see the original layout. I just ordered my ruler last Friday. Love the left over projects, especially that sweet little pin cushion.

    My original layout was with 5 inch squares And 3 rows of 7, Row 1&3 start with dark blue and Row2 starts with yellow I added a 3 inch yellow border then cut and marked top Rt A1 A2 A3 etc. Did this with all rows as I cut and then chain sewed them together, then added a 1/2 inch strip to the raw edges in navy thead and added a 2 1/2 inch border in the yellow It is SID and squared to 15 1/2 x28 inches then icut 2 1/2 in strips fot a doublefold binding The template was one I made myself.I would do this first before doing a large quilt just to get the idea I squared my scrapto 2 1/4 " squares for the potholders the logcabin is a 4 1/2 " square and the flower pincushion is on a golf tee that sits in a spool of thread . just google flower pinushion on a golf tee for the felt on bottom of flower i colored white flt with a matching marker. All simple to do projects!

    Really nice. I'm working on a Twister WH and hope it turns out for me-I don't think it is simple though.

    That table runner is gorgeous. I have that tool, haven't used it yet. I think I will find it and give a try.

    I would like to know that answer to about the pin cushion on the spool of thread. Those would make nice little gifts to a sewer...So please let us know how that is made. I also like the stuff you made. That table runner is beautiful.
