Another beautiful Twist and Shout

About a year ago, my design,Twist and Shout, was featured in McCalls Quick Quilts magazine. I had originally made the quilt as a three part mystery and named it Snake Dance. I enjoyed teaching it as a mystery...watching the students try to figure out what was going on with the design from week to week.

After it was published in the magazine, Cheryl from Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting decided to make the quilt for her son's upcoming marriage. She enlarged the pattern to make it queen size, but along the way she made an error in size while making the half square triangles. She didn't want all of those HST to go to waste, and they did match the quilt, so she ended up making a pieced back too. You can read her story about making this gorgeous quilt here.

I love her quilt...and the fact that she shared with me. It's so much fun to see the finished quilts from my patterns. Thanks for sharing, Cheryl!

Beautiful. It's so vibrant and I'm glad that the 'mistakes' didn't go to waste.

It was fun, and went together quickly and easily (other than my mistake with the HST's). I might do this one again someday. Thanks for writing the pattern.
