An over-due post.

I told you a while back that I was working on some secret projects for out free demo days at the shop. The demos have been done, but now the projects will be taught in a hands on class rather than a demo.
The first one many of you have probably seen. It is the Lil' Twister. I did one of those and it was so much fun. Then I made a quilt with the large template/ruler and layer cakes:

The left over bits were just to cute, I had  to trim them and make this:

Of course now that I had done big, lil', and mini, what else could I do?  Tiny. Yes, tiny.

The two smallest templates are made by Primitive Gatherings with the permission of the creator of the Lil' twister. The larger one uses 3" squares and the tiny one uses 2" squares. We have had a bunch of customers come in with finished projects since the demo. Later this month I will teach the technique for those who would like a more hands on class.

I will write a post on the other demo in the next few days.
Happy Stitching


  1. Those are great, I love the tiny ones!

  2. For the first time, I see a bit of how that quilt is put together. All the sizes are really cute; I lean toward the tiny one too! ---"Love"

  3. I love them all! I must make this design one of these days. Great quilts Beth! Ann :-)

  4. Is that pattern done with a special ruler? Love how all the quilts turned out.


  5. CUTE! But're saying if I use the large twister ruler (8") that the scraps will be enough to use the smaller twister (3.5") to make another quilt? I have both, so if that's the case woo-hoo! Moves that right up the list for me. Thanks for the motivation! (Cause we all know I need another project...)

  6. Oh I really like the tiny one...what an amazing pattern to make in all sizes!!

  7. I am always amazed at how a block will change, when you change its size. You've done well with all three sizes.
