Teeny Tiny Twister

Here it is- finally finished! It's a teeny tiny Twister. It measures 6" x 7.5". My buddy Sue bought both sizes of the  Twister templates, and tried them out, using the smaller size. When she finished I asked her for the leftover "bits" so I could try doing a miniature version of hers. I wanted to challenge myself to see how small I could go - the finished blocks are slightly under 3/4 ".
Twisters are a lot of fun. The templates are very easy to use- you sew either 5" or 10" squares together, then use the template to cut out the twister blocks. I am working on one now for a Community Projects quilt for Guild- it will go to the Neonatal unit at our local hospital. I just cut a variety of pink prints - for someone's precious baby girl, and will do one in blues as well. It's a fun quick project.

Peace
Linda

No, not difficult. Finickety maybe, but not difficult. Just takes time patience and accuracy in your work...

Time, patience, accuracy, good light, great fine motor skills, and like Gail says...patience. Congratulations on the finish. Missed seeing it at Guild.
