I recently finished this twister quilt which I have named, "Twister Twin." I named it that because it is almost identical to a twister quilt I made in 2014.
I moved around a few of the blocks and put black minky on the back instead. The first quilt was given to family who live out of state, and the second is a gift for a friend.
I pieced this quilt using the method I came up with which doesn't use the special ruler. All the twister pieces are cut and the blocks are sewn like a crazy 4-patch. It goes together so quickly and has very little waste.
I quilted it on my Janome because the backing wasn't big enough to put it on my mom's Fusion and I don't have space for my Tiara. It was fun using this older machine.
I quilted it with swirls and curls like I did on the first one.
I really love how it turned out, and it will be a little hard to part with it. I may just have to make a black, white and red twister quilt for me sometime. (I have already made another cuddle quilt out of the scraps.)

I had to tell the boys' snowman that he couldn't keep the quilt.
P.S. I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar. Check them out for lots of quilty inspiration.
