Here is a super gift idea that S gave to her friend!
This twister is the table top size made with charm squares.
She requested loops in each pinwheel and supplied the red & green variegated thread. We both were pleased with the results!
S is a whiz at making the mini twister from the leftovers and I’m able to quilt them side by side.
I think I need to make a few of these for Christmas decorations! So cute with a candle centerpiece.

Last week L had 2 small projects for me. A twister tablerunner that is just dynamic in her brights with a black border. I want to show you the full top even though this photo is blurry. Sorry!
The colors of the fabrics are just fantastic!
I gave the border a leafy bud design and the center has a meander.
Her second project is a larger wallhanging, about 40″ square. I just love the 3-D pinwheels made with prairie points! She’ll tack them down now that the quilting is done.
A light-medium density meander in the center helps the pinwheels stand out and I added a circular quilting design to the borders.

Sue L made a Twister quilt as one of her first projects and used a charm square pack from Kansas Treasures. She finished this 21″ square quilt and asked for meandering. I did a smaller than normal meander in porportion to the size of the quilt.
With the scraps leftover, she then made this 12″ x 12″ mini twister quilt. It is so cute!! Lots of tiny squares and seams for a beginner. 🙂
Since she provided a width of fabric for her backing, I floated the little quilt beside the big one for quilting. I think she’ll want to see how I did that so I took this photo while they were still in the quilt frame.
