Lil’ Twister Pillow Band Tutorial
I bought this cute charm pack called Spirograph by Benartex. I bought it from Quilter’s Daily Deal
I love getting a email every day from Missouri Star Quilt Co. letting you know the Deal of the Day. I wish I could buy all of them! Lots of bright colors. I forgot to take a picture of the pack – you can see my Whirlyjig block that I cut with the big prints (I’ll post that soon).
I took all the tone on tones and used them for a Lil’ Twister runner.This was very close to being another UFO. I put a 3.5 inch border on the runner and it measured 68 x15. I knew it would shrink after I cut out the blocks.
noticed I had 2 blocks of the same color next to each other.
This is when it almost went into the UFO pile or the blocks that never get finished pile.
I did a large squiggle loop in each twister and then stipple quilted the background.
Then I took another piece of muslin the same size, placed my quilted top right side down on it and stitched around the sides. I left a opening about 4 inches so I could turn it right side out. Then I top stitched around it catching the opening seam in my stitching.
A couple pieces of Velcro were used to close it around my pillow.
I think it looks better on a solid colored pillow. This is a pillow from our porch furniture which is a little small. The other pillow at the beginning is one that I made out of muslin. Now to use the other half of my runner – hmmmm – a different pillow coming up.
