Twisting Around the World

Hey all!!

If you are a member of my Facebook Page you might remember a while ago when I posted the layout to this little quilt.  Well, I finally finished it!  It is quilted, bound, labeled and everything!

Some of you, on my Facebook page, guessed correcty ~ it is a Twister Quilt, using the 'Lil Twister ruler set in an around the world quilt setting.  I absolutely love how this turned out!  What do you think?  Of course, I always like the way that the Twister quilts turn out don't you??

I had to get this finished, well I didn't have to, I just really wanted to get it finished, for an open house at my local quilt shop tomorrow.  I am teaching the Twister ruler again and I thought people might like to see this option so I worked to finish this up today.  I quilted it using a 40 weight gold rayon thread top and bobbin in a swirl pattern.  I always like gold rayon thread ;-)

So, what are you all working on today?  Any quilty plans for the weekend?

Oh, how lovely... fab colors! Looks great in those batiks!

This weekend, I'm teaching someone to sew/piece a quilt block (or three)... should be fun!

I never made a trip around the world quilt. How is this layout different. Love the fabric choice.

Wow! This is really a beautiful Lil' Twister quilt! I've got a small one in the works, they are so much fun aren't they?
