Love the Twister

 I have been working on this Twister quilt for the past few weeks. The quilting is completed now and I am ready to bind. Maybe tonight.
When you make this quilt, you have squares left over in between your cuts that are approximately 4.5" - 5" so I squared them up to 4.5", sewed them together and then used the little ruler I adapted to make the mini Twister last summer to cut a small twister border.

 I was trying to get a good pic of the little twister border, but it doesn't show up that well here. They would show up better with a bit more contrast in the background fabric, but I wanted to use the same as I used in the quilt so they would float. You will just have to take my word for it, they are really cute!
The quilting panto is called Oriental Illusions. I like it because it is a nice allover design. It reminds me of  the tops of palm trees, or maybe even claws. I used a variegated gold/green thread. I am going to bind it with the same fabric as the back.

Oh I really like this quilt.. the quilting is perfect and the little twisters in the border set it off.. I can see them just fine.

I love it seeing it on the frame as well.

I've had fun using my Lil Twister tool....have the one that you use with 5" squares. I think I'm going to get the bigger one, too.
