Tresor de la Mer

 Here's another finish for Victory Quilts, our prayer quilt ministry.
 It's full of swirlies.
 A few waves thrown in in honor of various crustaceans.

A variety of thread colors.
 And of course, it has some feathers.
I purchased the Twister Template last summer at the Knoxville AQS show.  The top was done probably before the school year started, but it didn't get basted until February. This quilt began as 10 inch squares with a 10 inch border.

The crustacean/beach fabric was a gift from a friend who tried to help me out because I really like making quilts from girly-girl  fabrics and men need prayer quilts too.  I pulled coordinating solids and a couple mottled fabrics from my stash--and I have quite a few squares of those left.  However, I don't think I'll make another quilt from these colors.

I do think it would be fun to make another of these large twister quilts from a group of rose or flower fabrics.  Hmmmm, maybe I should trade my uncut twister squares with someone who has a bunch of rose themed squares.

It's good to have several small quilts completed this year--although I'm already far, far behind where I was by spring a couple of years ago.

For those who have arrived here via Sara's Whoop, Whoop and Mr. Linky: this is not one of may favorite quilts.  In fact, although there are some things I do like about it, I'll be glad to see it move on. You'll find plenty more elsewhere on my blog.

I also linked to Jo's Country Junction.

Happy quilting, all......

Another lovely finish, Dora! I enjoyed the twister project, but can't say I would take on a larger project with it, can you?
Hope your day was beautiful ~

I really like the twister quilt. I still haven't used my ruler. I will have to do that soon.

How pretty! I'm glad to see how you quilted it - I've got one myself that needs finishing and I may try out those swirlies! Whoop whoop!

Is the twister tricky to piece? I've seen similar quilts before and always think the angles would trip me up - but it's a great effect!
