The concept of the Twister ruler has fasicnated me for awhile. So here is my first go at making something with Twister ruler. I have six projects at various stages going right now... not sure why I started another one, but this was a lot of fun. Fast, easy, and I think way cute. I have a hard time following directions, so I slightly modified the pattern found in Let's Twist Again by Marsha Bergren. My goal was to use all of the usable fabric I could. I was also limited on using something I had on hand... no runs to the store and I commited myself to trying to use only 2 charm packets. I ended-up using 2 1/2 charm packs (Ruby and Muslim mates by Moda) and 1 fat quarter of the ruby. The back will probably be mulsin and now I am trying to figure out how I want it quilted. Do you think hand quilted with Pearl Cotton thread or the usual???? If you have never used the Twister ruler- below is a few snap shots of my first go at it. You layout your pieces and sew them together- either 10" or 5" (charm size) in the order you would like. I rearranged them a half dozen times and finally gave up. I do not feel very comfortable doing random and I'm suprised at the outcome. Instead of doing the border row, I went ahead and put "extra" rows on all sides.
PS. If you are interested in the ruler or the book let me know and I can get you one.
