Lil Twister Quilt

It's taken me a week to make this little quilt in between my day job and working on Bonnie's mystery.
 I've been taking part in a block exchange this year ( a post on that to follow) and one of the ladies sent me a block using this pattern, then I saw a liitle quilt on Connie's blog:    http://conniekresin.blogspot.com/2011/10/worldly-lil-twister-quilt-and-giiveaway.html
So I just had to get one of these :
I'm in the UK and got mine from Creative Grids.
It's so easy

Sew together a selection of 5" squares.......


....... then start cutting.


It goes together easily and fast.

I ended up with this....

I machine quilted it lightly as I wanted quite a bubbly feel to it.  It measures 30" x 36" - just a nice size for a baby!

I finished it off with a cream binding and I love how it turned out.  I already have my next lot of 5" squares sewn up and ready to be cut.  It's a great little tool and I would recommend it to anyone.

So that is all I've done this week.  I am linking this post to TGIFF.  This week M R from Quilt Matters is hosting  http://quiltmatters.blogspot.com/2011/12/tgiff-wee-spy-quilts.html   so head on over there and add your link or just enjoy all the other friday finishes.

Have a great weekend everyone
Rhianon.

I love the quilting on this! It softens the sharp edges of the pinwheel shape and goes so nicely with the swirl border!

This is terrific. I love the quilting motif you did up. Also love the floral-watercolory effect!

Oh, that is so cool! I've seen these types of quilts before but thought they looked so complicated. This is fabulous! You picked beautiful fabrics for this, Rhianon and the quilting showcases the pattern beautifully. Thanks for linking to TGIFF!

Thanks for the link to my blog and you are going to find that the Lil' Twister is very addictive! Love your quilt and the way you quilted it! Have fun with step 4 of Orca!
