I wanted to show you the little doll quilt that I made for my great granddaughter in Pennsylvania. I have seen so many pretty pictures of quilts made with the Lil’ Twister tool and I had to try it. I thought a small project would be best to start with.
The instructions were unusual (for me) as you put the squares together AND add the border. Then you use the tool and cut. Scary!
I loved the way it turned out. It was like seeing magic before my eyes. It was fast and fun and made me feel like a real piecer! As far as I am concerned, there was only one problem. You will notice in the previous picture that the ruler indicates that the quilt is around 31 inches long. This picture above shows that you lose about 10 inches in the process.
These are the pile of scraps I had left, which I will no doubt use in “making fabric” some day. This was a fun project and I certainly would recommend getting the Lil’ Twister tool. It comes in various sizes. I think mine was the middle size…it is about 3 ½” square.
