When blocks for a Twister quilt are cut, a square of fabric is leftover between each block. The square is not on the straight of grain. Care must be taken when working with these leftovers because of the stretchy bias edges. I used my Go! Cutter to cut out small Drunkards Path (DP) blocks with the squares left from a Twister quilt made with a layer cake.
This is the first project I made with the small DP die. What fun using every bit of fabric from a layer cake!
Last year I bought the Itty Bitty Primitive twister pattern and template at the quilt show in Columbus, Ohio. I used it for the first time this month. I cut a Moda candy bar into 2 1/2 inch squares to make this miniature quilt top. The finished squares are only one inch with the top measuring ten inches.
I bought two charm packs at Fabrics and Friends Quilt Shop when three friends and I went on a Saturday morning road trip. The charm packs were Ruby and Moda Solid in white. I made a heart shaped twister wall hanging with the charm packs.
This quilt top measures about 24 X 24 inches. I plan to quilt it with loopy meandering and hearts.
