To take a break from "Celtic Solstice", I tried to make a new work : Twister Pinweel !
This is a block that I like so much because the final result is like a surprise.
I began to make the top with 4 and 1/4" squares (I had several ones already cut in this measure) , 7 units X 7 rows, and a 3" border.
Then, since I haven't the Pinweel block ruler, I made a plastic template ( 3"X 3") by myself.
I began to cut neatly the blocks and put them apart in the same position.
Little by little I reassambled the new squares to form the pinweels.
I sewed the blocks and then the rows.......
A beautiful new"top"!
I added a piece of cotton batting and hanquilting with cotton perle.....
I decided to make a cushion with this cute mini quilt.....so I made an envelope closure for the back......and voilà ...
.....a beautiful new cushion for my sofa......and I learned a new technique!!!
