Fig Tree Twister Quilt

One of my own quilts to start the year.  This quilt was made with the Twister template by Primitive Patterns, the larger template was used for the blocks in this Fig Tree fabric quilt, and the smaller template was used for the borders.

I thought that the Entangle pantograph by Hermione Agee added to the twisting look of the quilt blocks.

On the back I added a row of little twisters, which come with a story.  I was working on these borders during a sew day at my friend Janet’s and unknowingly left one strip behind, when I got home and wanted to finish the quilt I was short a bunch of little twisters.  Thinking that I must of miscalculated I sewed up another border, two weeks later when I returned to Janet’s she had the missing strip waiting for me, so I incorporated it into the back.  A nice addition to the back of this quilt, as I always like back art.

I find quilting is always adapting and often correcting little blunders.
