The Lil Twister pattern is a quick and easy and it's a fun quilt to make.
have the small pattern that uses 5 inch squares or charms. Using a
charm pack would diffently help make this a quicker project to
complete. (There is also a large pattern made to use 10 inch squares or
layer cake packs.) I chose to cut the 5 inch squares from 36 different fabrics, so this took a little bit of time to cut them all out.
I sewed them together in six rows of six
(a little bigger than suggested in the pattern), pressed, and then added a 3 inch border as directed.
all you do is put the pattern/template on the sewn top, aligning the
black lines of the pattern/template with the sewn lines of the pieced
Then just cut around the pattern/template,
turn each piece slightly and sew back together in the same order.
Continue cutting and sewing until all rows are back together and pressed.
I then added another border (7 inches) and --- WaLaa! -- a finished baby sized flimsy about 40" by 40"!!!
I did the whole thing from cut to pressed in under 4 hours. Think how fast you could go if you used charms!
