“Twist & Shout”….a finish…………..

Yup…..a tale that was last seen here, with this added “feathered swirl” stitching motif tutorial detail here, is now this ‘finish’ that I’m completely in love with!!!!!!!IMG_8082     With its mix of flannel and cotton charm squares, setting triangles and borders, what started out as the needed workshop demo project has become a quilt I would really like to have around!!!!! The challenge (for me) was to have the light fade to darkness and, if you look back to the original pattern, you will see how this was a tricky endeavor requiring MUCH visualizing and a design wall. I used 2 charm packs of “Primitive Muslin” and 1 pack of cotton “Count Your Blessings” prints, to add some variety! I’m almost ready to have a go at another such setting…….BUT, a few things must be taken care of first. You will see what I mean in the next few posts.

Thread: (top) Glide, 40wt (bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro, 70wt. Batting: Hobbs Heirloom cotton/poly (80/20), black!

Onward to the day. And a very warm one, here in the Rio Grande Valley…..Temps around 90 with humidities guaranteed to make my hair frizz!!! LOL! Thanks to y’all (oops, another TX insert!!!) for popping in!!! Sending hugs….always…….

    Looks great just what you envisaged, light fading to dark. 🙂 Those are colours I like too. I’m fond of the Civil War fabrics because they usually contain somber colours with a red or something else to add a brightness.

    This is a great quilt, it makes me feel warm, which is good, because we got 3-4 more inches of snow last night. No wind, though, so it is fluffy and sparkles in the moonlight. Cold though…5 above for a high today….come on spring!!!!
