Twisted Sister quilt.




Another of my UFO's ( or PHD's - lol ). This one is a christmas present to my oldest friend Jacqui. Last christmas I hasten to add. Naughty me - completely ran out of time ! The plan is to quilt this and send it to her in Scotland in time for her birthday in September. Should have plenty of time if I start soon. Then that will be another one out of the way.


This quilt is nothing like the stuff I usually make. I hardly ever make quilts with just 3 colours - scrappy wins everytime. Not my type of colours either but I think Jacqui will love it. She has always had a thing for red and black !


It is made using the twisted Sister template set by Ami Simms and went together in no time at all. In fact because the top was finished so soon I dawdled on quilting it as I thought I had plenty of time and thats why it's still sitting in my UFO pile when it should have been long gone !


I would like to do a scrappy version of this sometime. Who knows when ??

Wow, that is a striking quilt!!! I love the color scheme and especially the red bandanna print. I'd love to find that fabric.

That is so pretty - black and white along with one more colour always looks so good.

That is really sharp!! It would also look great scrappy. I especially like the name. ;)

I love this quilt - black, white and an accent colour always look so good together. I've often looked at that twisted sister pattern in quilts and I just can't work it out - is it difficult? I always looks so effective

I've not tried the Twisted sister pattern, but it does make a great quilt - lots of movement. If Jacqui loves red and black she is going to LOVE this :)
