Marie,

I can sympathize with you on the heat, we too were in the 90's and DH has been working massive amounts of overtime and hasn't done the yearly maintenance to the central air and wouldn't allow us to turn it on....just the ceiling fans :(!  (The upside to that, is I can get my bernina in for a tune up, and maybe find a few more pieces of fabric for my stash). The Twister is beautful, I love the color combination....what about doing gridwork in the center spaced around 1- 1/1/2 inches? and then maybe a scroll pattern in the border area?? Just an idea?

Debbie, I love both your twisters, very pretty!  Thanks for the idea of going around the shapes with gold metallic thread.  Your mini is just too cute!  Is there a twister tool that small?

Marie & Debbie both your twisters are great.  Looks like a hard project.  Marie I don't know how you would quilt it.  But anyone that can put that twister together can certainly do a wonderful job on quilting it.

Thank you!

Marie, I have 4 sizes of the Twister tool.  The bigger ones are from CS Designs and the smaller two are from Primitive Gatherings. I'm pretty sure I used Lil' Twister for the larger quilt and with careful cutting I was able to use the smallest (Itty Bitty) with the scraps. 

Itty Bitty measures 1.5", next size is 2.25", Lil' Twister is 3.5" and regular Twister is 8".  I believe you can do the same thing by cutting carefully and using scraps with the regular Twister and the 2.25" one.

Marie:
Not to mention the 90 degree weather and only one air conditioner in the window.  I literally couldn't do a thing

It was a cool wet day here in Minnesota, so I thought I would enjoy a relaxing day indoors sewing, but a friend from the old neighborhood drove up for DH's birthday, so instead we spent the day chatting.   I'll have to see what tomorrow brings....

I can't believe I actually machine quilted the Log Cabin quilt for the TaeKwonDo instructor.  I'm not real happy with the job I did, but it will have to do as I refuse to frog (unsew) another quilt.  My machine was really acting strangely today...don't know if it is an electrical problem in the house (we have an old mobile home), a bad surge protector or the machine, but it kept slowing way down on it's own and making large stitches (which I did frog and redo as it happened).  Anyway, now to do the binding and the label and that will be one UFO out of the way.

Way to go, Karla! I wish I could say the same about my UFO's! I'm sure yours looks great.

Hello ladies, I'm new to this forum thing and I don't know how to start a conversation! I have been reading your posts and I know I can reply to them, but how do I initiate a comment. Thanks for your help.

In a Free Motion Quilting class I took last week, she said to get the trapunto effect, double layer the batting where you want it with a Poly-Fil batting on top and quilt. Does that make sense? In other words, you wouldn't have to double layer everywhere.

You do the very same thing you did for this comment.  If you are responding to someone in particular you put their name at the top of your post....just like I did in this one.   If you are posting something in general you still use the reply button on a previous post.   Hope this helps.
