This small wall hanging was made from fabric from my stash. I saw a picture of a twister wreath and wanted to try it. (Thank you new2quilting.) It went together very quickly.
I used five inch squares: 9 background, 8 red, and 8 green squares.
The next step is to sew them into rows.
Add 3 inch borders, using the background fabric.
The next step is to cut it apart using the Lil’ Twister tool.
Place the squares into rows in the same order they were cut.
Sew the squares into rows and join the rows together.
The final step is to add a border. I cut two strips 1 1/2 inches wide the width of the fabric. The finished size of the quilt is 20 1/2 inches.

I like your twist. Now I know where to find the pattern when I get around to making one. You and Kris aren’t becoming twisted are you? : )

Thanks Liz. I may be a little twisted but I can’t speak for Kris!

I saw this before and couldn’t for the life of me figure it out. I have two different twister rulers and want to make this. Thank you for showing the layout!

This is so good. I just finished a huge quilt with the template and would love to do this one.

Hi Linda, my fist time on your site. Loved the tutorial. I’m a want to be quilter. I love to do table toppers and runners using the quilting method.

I just linked to you on my blog as I used your idea for a wreath to do the same thing with my fabrics today!

Does the border have to be added before the Twister squares are cut or can it be added after?
- admin says... August 26, 2013 | 2:41 pm
Donna, the first white border needs to be added before cutting. The final border is added after sewing the twisted blocks together.
