At Bonnie's request, I'll share a little more about twister quilts. These rulers are so steady with their gripping feet. I enjoyed the ease and speed of making both the large and small size. There's another one I'm working on for a baby quilt, but I'll wait to share that one until it's ready.
I saw a twisted heart on the internet and decided to give it a try. Ironically, I had won a fat quarter bingo (400 FQ's !!!) that Bonnie hosted several years ago. So, I happened to have lots of perfect fabrics ready for this heart. First, I sewed 5" squares into a 5 by 5 grid. Then, I added a 3" border.
Next, I used the Lil' Twister ruler to cut out my new blocks.
There were leftover pieces from cutting with the Lil' Twister. Since these were so small, I trimmed them to identical size and made a mug rug. Many of my friends select matching coffee mugs to showcase their mug rugs. There is a little bit of mossy green in some of these fabrics, but they just don't show up here.
The Dr. Seuss quilt started with the larger Twister ruler. It had a similar beginning. Cut with the ruler. Resew. Add a new border. Quilt. Bind. Enjoy.
Don't waste those remnants! Can you see the Twister Ruler overlayed on these pieced scraps?
