This is what it looked like when I started:
A giant pile of scraps. These were cut into 5 inch squares and sewn together, then a border was added. Then it was time to cut them up again.
Lil' Twister template by CS designs (www.country-schoolhouse.com). You align the lines on the template with the seams on your quilt top and cut around the template. You then sew the pieces back together in the same order you cut them. You can find a complete tutorial for a version of this quilt that has sashing on Moda Bake Shop.
Like I said, several of us made this quilt. Here are a couple other examples of the finished product:
|Mary Beth made this one out of batiks. It has a dramatic flair.|
|Louise and Terry both worked on this one... what a great baby quilt!|
