Connie’s Twister Quilt

Connie’s Twister Quilt

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.

I love the secondary pattern this is created and evident from the back.  This will make a fun reversible quilt!

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!

Jordy’s Tummy Time quilt

Do you remember the baby shower gift wrapped in a quilt?  Well, that baby is a boy!  I decided to finish the boy version the day my niece went to the hospital!  I was getting progress reports from the grandma (my sister) while  I was stitching away.  I had the binding made and sewn on by machine, front and back, by 10:30 pm and Jordy was born at 12:03 am, so I had it done before he was born!!

Here I am giving Jordy his Tummy Time quilt, isn’t he cute?!   I guess I’ll have to wait for another baby for the girl version to be gifted.  I have lots of nieces and nephews so it’ll happen soon.  My son got married this summer, they could make me  grandma again!!

stitched label

The label is stitched with Packer green thread in honor of his Packer namesake, Jordy Nelson.  Yes, he’s named after a Green Bay Packer player!

Dream Puff batting

The backing and binding are flannel, soft and cozy!

The batting is Quilter’s Dream Puff and the thread is A&E PermaCore.
