WIP Wednesday

Monday and Tuesday, I worked on my L'il Twister tester.  Some of the FAB's (Cher, Linda, Norma and Pam) are meeting online for a sewing day and some of us~will be working on Twister projects.

I wanted to try out my ruler since I just picked it up last Friday. 

I followed the direction included with the L'il Twister ruler and made my patchwork.

I then cut it up and sewed the pinwheels together.

One complaint I read about was that there is waste with this method.  True but I am not too worried as I will put the snippets in the scrap boxes and they will return as parts of crumb blocks.

The finished L'il Twister quilt on the family room wall.  Be kind~I was having an off day quilting.  :(

This twister quilt was inspired by the September Color Palette challenge that is being hosted by JudyL at Patchwork Times and Vicki at Field Trips in Fiber.

I love it! It looks very much like a fall day to me with the turquoise added.

I actually like these planned better than just scrappy pieces so yours really appeals to me!

This is great! I have that new ruler, and I love the setting you used. I'm not good at random, and your's shows how well planned can look. Great example of the color pallet.
