WIP....I am so excited...

It is Wednesday and I am doing the happy dance because in two days I will be in Houston for Market....but I have been working extra hard with my Twister.  My "adopted" daughter, Andrea, finally gave me some very good news.  I am going to be an adopted "grandma" in May.  I have been waiting for this news since last year.  I am hoping for a little girl (I want to do lots of frilly things) but I will be thrilled with a boy too!  So you know me....so impatient....I started with this.....
whipped out my little twister and a couple of hours later I had this....
Isn't so pretty and springy....going to be just right for a May baby.  Haven't decided if I am going to put border on all four sides and make it fat and square.....or just a small border down the other two sides and make it longer and skinnier.....
I just can't get over what this little tool can do.
I course I admitted I was hoping for a girl....but I have the fabric laid out to do a boy quilt just like this one.....just in case....I figure she can use the one she needs and I will give the other one as a gift.

I already have the fabric laid out for 3 more of these little twister quilts.  I like the big twister, too....but it takes a little more space to spread out and a little longer to put back together.  The little ones just work up so quickly and they make me giggle.

Going to link up over at Lee's Freshly Pieced....
then go finish packing....
so excited.

Love the quilt! Makes me want to purchase one of those funny rulers, especially when it results in such a gorgeous quilt...new baby will be very proud to own this quilt!

What gorgeous colours. I prefer long and skinny to fat and square...don't know why but I do! Unless the quilt is going to be used as a picnic or floor quilt.

I have been looking back at all the different twister quilts you have done. They look great. I like the border you are going to use on this one.
