Yep....it seems every time I make a quilt I learn something or at least relearn it AFTER making the same mistakes again and again. Here is the Red and Cream Snowball quilt made mostly from leaders and enders. First I learned to count the number of blocks "several" times before thinking I had enough for a pattern. Then I find that even after all my planning and placing and putting up on a design wall that I still ended up with like fabrics next to each other! I'm sure whomever gets this quilt when it is finished will not notice and be happy just to be the recipient of a warm quilt made with love by a friend. This Twister quilt was so fun to make and went together so quickly and easily even with all the bias edges! I learned, and probably should have noticed before I even cut the fabrics, that scattering the bold colored pinks around would have made for a more pleasing quilt. But I will make another one of these maybe using Christmas prints or other stash fabrics because it makes for a quick and simple gift for someone and really does look more complicated than it is.
I need to purchase a solid looking brown for the outside border yet and then it will be ready for the quilter too.
