I have said this before and it sure is true - I love to read quilt blogs! The downside is that there are so many beautiful, fun ideas out there that I cant wait to try new projects.
Late Friday night I decided to try out my Twister template. Now I know that I may be late to the Twister game, but I have to say that I love it! I just can't believe how easy it was to put together a block that looks so complicated.
I decided that I would test out the template with a small stack of charms left over from an old project.
Warning: I did make a big mistake when cutting out the first 2 rows. I figured it didn't matter how the template was placed on the fabric as long as the template lines matched the seams. Apparently, it does make a difference. I guess I flipped the template over a few times when cutting while watching TV. The blocks did not match up and I had to start over.
You can bet that I was extra careful when cutting out the blocks for a second time. Once the blocks were cut, I think it took less than 10 minutes to sew the top together. The next time I use the template, I will be more aware of my fabric choices so the twisters do not blend together.
Now I just need to determine how to finish this project.
