    Newbie With a 1st Quilt to Show...

    Well, I'm not a newbie to sewing, but it's been ages since I've made a quilt. Thanks to Jenny's great tutorials, I think I may have found a new obsession for life...

    I had purchased all these random fabrics that just reminded me of my daughter, and when I saw the tutorial on the Twister Tool, I knew that's what I had to do with them. So, here's my "twisted" take.

    I call it "Geometry is Boring," since well, it's a quilt, so there's the whole shape/math thing...and it's for a my teenage daughter, so the quilting's supposed to look like something a teenage girl would doodle in her notebook when she's bored during class. I used 100% cotton batting and backed it in black flannel for extra warmth and coziness. This was a ton of fun! Thanks, Jenny & MSQC!

    Her little brother's jealous that she got a quilt first, so I'm already on to his using the Simple Marks Summer jelly roll from Moda. It's going to be a race quilt, with a few extra things thrown in just for fun!

    Thanks for the inspiration! Happy sewing!

                        Love that! Isn't the twister a fun quilt to build? I have several potential twisters " waiting in the wings" for me to work on! I know why the boy wants one, they look so cool!

                              Remember that commercial where the yuppie couple goes into an office, with the sky line as a back drop, and says 'build a room around this faucet'?
                              I feel like this room was built for this quilt!
                              AWESOME!
                              I really need to get off the exclamation point.
