I have a new granddaughter arriving in about 3 months. For her I am trying a new quilt pattern and process. This is the first time I've ever starched my fabrics, and I like it. They stretch and distort less, it is almost like sewing paper together. The pattern is a Twister Quilt, made with a special Twister template. The first picture is the first step of all the blocks sewn together, that was Friday night. The template is a clear square with an X marked on it at 30 degrees. The X goes over the seams between 4 blocks and then you cut along the outsides of the template, turned to the right and sew together in the order they were cut. It sounds confusing, and until I was really doing it I was lost. There are Twister Quilt tutorials online if you're interested. Anyway, the second picture is Saturday night. Now all I need is borders and I can take it to the longarm shop on Saturday. Last I checked the shop had a backlog of 8 weeks for quilts to be done. Quarantine has been good for them. I have a second grandchild coming in April, so as soon as I know gender I will ask the mom for her color preferences and I will do it again. It's really fun. I'll also be posting pictures when the finished product is done. I do think I need more contrast in the colors, but other than that I'm pleased as punch with this, and the mom likes it too.
