Everyone is allowed to make fun of me

Last Saturday I helped my LQS owner with a quilt show in Ponchatoula, La.  I had a blast and I kept watching her demonstrate the "Twister".  Now I bought both the small and large twister from her last December during her "Stuff Your Stuffing" promotion and as usual I still hadn't done anything with them because I was intimidated.  Sunday I hunted down a layer cake that I had won at our Christmas party, spent the day sewing all the blocks together and then realized I had nothing in my fabric stash that matched in order to put a border on.  Well that was frustrating....all that time....then I noticed I had a charm pack of Thimbleberries and said to myself....when you get lemons, make lemonade...and guess what....not only was it easy....it was so cool.  I loved it. 

I was so excited I got up Monday morning....grabbed some Christmas fabric and started sewing.  Here's how it started:
and here's what it looks like now......
Now don't laugh at me....I was patting myself on the back....so proud of me and when I got down to the last row to attach....something looked off.  Looking at the before picture I realized I wasn't very careful about how I layed out my 5" squares....but you know what....I still love it and I can't wait to make another one.  A baby quilt comes to mind.

By the way.....I was too late to post last Wednesday...and I worked hard at getting that post together....please go look at it and enjoy my learning process.


Have a great week....see you next Wednesday!

Oh my gosh - I love them both! How cute! I'm with you - that pattern is so cute, but looks so complicated! Goodness me - I had to really really look to see what you were talking about! Way to sew girlfriend :)!!
