It's a Finish!!!

'Patriotic Twirl' is officially a FINISH!!!

I am loving this little quilt.  

It measures 24 inches square - perfect for a table topper or wall hanging.  

Not every triangle is perfectly perfect but I like making them using the 2 HST units out of 1 square, draw the stitch lines on the back method.  Drawing the lines really goes quickly and it makes for accurate units.

Here's a detail of the quilting.  I used blue variegated thread in the blue squares and plain cream everywhere else.  

Oh, and remember the red & blue fabrics from the original collection I edited out of the mix?

I pieced the back with them!
Hope you had a fun & productive sewing weekend, too! 


  1. It looks great, and I love the way you quilted it!

  2. It looks perfectly perfect to me! Wonderful work! I can see why you love it!
