After seeing so many Twisters out there in blogland, and after finding a great tut on Linda,Quilts in the Barn blog... I just had to do one...
I really wanted to use up some of my scraps....so I searched through my scraps and found enough Japanese fabrics left over from a quilt I did a few years ago...Here you can see my Japanese quilt..
Then I needed some background fabric...I was thinking Indigo, but I didn't have enough, then I thought Orange..yes, Orange and the Japanese blue fabrics go well together.
So, I pieced the squares together and started cutting and sewing the pinwheels together. Can you see what happened...I started out with 49" pieced blocks and border to end up with 29" of a row of pieced blocks...
Well, I just had to keep going with it now...it will be a lovely table topper for someone..
To frame the twister pinwheels I added 1" sashing..
The fabric left after I finished cutting out the pinwheels looked like swiss cheese, I trimmed back the pieces to 4 1/2' then cut them across the diagonal into half square triangles and added them to the outside, I think Orange binding will add a nice finishing touch..
Ok, I satisfied myself by doing the twister, but I don't think I would do another just now...♥
