Just creating in my studio

Hello everyone. My name is Claudette and I have an obsession with sewing, crafts, and creating art of pretty much any kind. My husband helped me build a small but serviceable sewing room/craft room/office in the extra bedroom of our home, and I use it a LOT. I've been a sewer for many years, but I'm fairly new to quilting and am learning new things all of the time.

Great tip and pictures.  It's always so much easier to do something when you can see it done.  Thanks.  Now I just have to get off my you know what and head  for my stash!

Hej Claudette,

Was wondering how large your block (in photo) ended up being?  Looks lovely by the way.  :-)

Lynette, the block currently measures at 12.5 inches.  I plan on adding a border and a background fabric (I'll be doing this "quilt as you go") so the finished blocks are going to wind up around 18 inches or so.

Hej Claudette!

The block size would be good for a center block in a quilt that I have in mind.... :-)  I just ordered and received my itty bitty twister block which makes a finished 1" block.  :-)  I haven't used it yet but did find a nice tutorial on making pinwheels in the shape of a heart and shamrock.  :-)  At the moment though I've started on my english piecing hexagon project.  Happy stitching!

Great pics and instructions. Now that I've seen your demo I'm going to get a Twister template for all those scraps. It makes such a cute quilt. Thanks, Ada

Claudette, Thanks for telling me about your blog. I have made 5 or 6 Twisters now (both 5 and 10 inch) and have ordered a itty bitty twister tool. I am hooked.

Claudette,

Your tutorial is excellent. Twister is a really neat concept and thank you for taking the time to share this.
