Updates . . . . .

My Twister project is home from the quilter.  I contemplated quilting this myself, doing some straight lines or maybe some big stitch hand quilting,  I'm so glad I got over those ideas because I would not have done near the job that my quilter, Connie Lancaster at Quilts Plus in Indianapolis, IN did.



I didn't notice how plain that white space was until Connie filled it with pinwheels.


Pinwheels in the pinwheels and pinwheels in-between the pinwheels.


Here's the corner.  Thank  you Cosmo Cricket for designing the perfect fabric for the binding!

And thank you Connie for quilting such a clever pattern on my project!

For more information on my SaltAir Twister go to my Lifetime Quilt List tab, this is Lifetime Quilt Number 88.

When I was working on my Twister, I linked to Dawn's blog where she showed some pictures of some Twister projects she had pieced.   Due to popular demand Dawn has created a very detailed tutorial on how to make her heart twister, stop on by if you would like to give that project a try.

Yo Yo update, last week I had 8 yo-yos . . . . 



This week I have  . . . 9!  LOL!!

Not as many as you or I expected, but I did buy a vase!

  9. What a fun cheery little quilt! I do love those pinwheels. And yes, the binding is perfect. Is that a bias binding? Or was the fabric a diagonal stripe rather than a straight stripe?
