Don’t you love the modern colors for this twister quilt? And Connie used the leftover squares to make the small twister border! That’s a nice feature of using the twister tool. Connie wanted minimal quilting that featured the twister pattern, She also selected a darker plain backing fabric so the quilting would show on the back. I designed a tessellating pattern running through the large twisters and a smaller version for the borders. The cream background is a small loop meander.
The batting is Quilter’s Dream Wool which is great for accentuating quilting!
The top thread is Superior OMNI, light tan and the bobbin thread is Superior So Fine #50 Teepee. By using darker thread in bobbin the thread color was subtle against the orange fabric. The lighter top thread was perfect for the background and twister fabric without having to change thread colors.
Still have a couple of quilts to post before I finish for the year and then on to 2012!
Thanks for looking!
