    Default Make a "Spring Twist" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKSm9pBL2qM

    Enjoy and have a great weekend !


    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    Thanks Anika! I always look forward to your "heads up" posts. I'm going to have to make this one soon. Maybe even for me to keep. It's just too sweet.

    Am I crazy or has she done one like this in the past? Maybe the snowball corners went the other way. I love it either way.

    Thanks for sharing. I like this one and I have a pack of Bali pips that might fit the bill!

    Yes she did! I made that one and thought, oh, I'all do the snowballs the other way and make pinwheels! So I made fence rail blocks without the snowballs on, and then had to unsee every seam to insert the snowball! Learned the hard way how NOT to construct these blocks! I love the finished look of this!

    I believe she did Diamond Fence Rail. Donna Jordan did the pinwheel variation a while back.

    Yes, she did a Pinwheels on Point with Fence Rail https://quiltingtutorials.com/tutori...nce-rail-quilt.

    Donna Jordan made a similar one: Let's Make a Pinwheel Rail Fence! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhjLPMjB5x0

    I can see this as a great children’s quilt.
    Just make it smaller for a crib or lap quilt
    using children’s prints and assorted solids
    to make colorful pinwheels.

    I really like the looks of Jenny's more than Donna's. Maybe because of more fabric colors.

    I cut one out over the weekend and didn't have quite enough of the snowball fabric so my outside rows won't have snowballs next to the border. I think that will work just fine. One day soon I will get all those snowballs done and share a picture.
