FNSI and Twisting the night away

Before the twister magic 
What happens when it's FNSI, cyberquilters  (yahoo group - it's free to join, check it out, lots of fun) have a twisting weekend and daughter number 4 needs a baby quilt in less than 2 weeks for a baby shower?? Well this happens of course.  I found some cute girly fat quarters, cut them into 6.75 in squares with a 4 in border.  Sewed it all together. Then cut up the pinwheel blocks which are 5 in.  I used the scraps from cutting in the first border.  One more border to add and the top will be done.  Hmmm but what about the quilting?  I'm thinking a cute little whimsical curlieque in each of the pinwheel arms.  Any other thoughts?

Stop by Heidi's to see what everyone else worked on last night.

  1. Wow that's really cute! I love the secondary look. I agree a swirl in each pinwheel will look adorable or half feather.

  2. Oh, this came out so cute! I have the large top using a layer cake ('Puttin on the Ritz'), but can't manage the template cutting - will have to wait a little longer for the fingers to heal.

  15. Sue, I love this Twister Quilt. I did some checking and I see that the "template" comes in two sizes.. One for 5" square and one for 10" squares. Since you said you cut your fabric in 6+" squares, which template did you use? Thanks in advance for such great inspiration.
