Twister Quilt finally finished!

I started this quilt in October of 2012! Yikes. I actually had it finished and quilted by March of 2013, but never got it blogged.
 I started sewing the binding on by hand, and got half way finished. Then it sat for almost two years. That's so pathetic! I FINALLY finished it this month! It only had two sides of binding to finish stitching!
I used the line "Circa 1934" from Moda and used 2 layer cakes plus yardage to get all the fun pieced borders. The center of the back is a piece of fabric that looked like labels. I am so happy to have this quilt finished, and I love it!

I have taught the Twister as a class twice now. Today was the second time. I like to see how different fabric lines make such different quilts. 

This one used Batiks with a white border. It's very striking!

This one placed the blocks in a diagonal pattern which created an interesting effect with the pinwheels. 
 This is one of my favorites from the class last year. I love the rainbow, and the black in the border has multi-colored dots which looks awesome with the bright fabrics!
 I did blog about this mini heart version. In 2013. Where has time gone!?
All these quilts were made using the Twister Ruler, or the 'Lil Twister for the small one.

Jess and I almost bought a ruler to do this and then talked ourselves out of it..... Why we were trying to be good, I don't know..... =)

Love yours and your students! The heart version is so fun!

All these quilts are wonderful! My favorite is the heart one, maybe because Valentine's Day is around the corner.
