My Strip Twist

Last summer I fell in love with Bonnie Hunter's Strip Twist quilt pattern. So I finally got around to making one of my own from my tons of scraps this year.

After trimming up some of my scraps I was ready to go. Now I did consider keeping the trims but decided that would be just too too much.

They're all nicely pressed and paired into lights and darks.

Here's they are matched up and ready for sewing. Actually I had enough to make two (2) quilts.

I'm very happy with the results ...... now to get it quilted. Any ideas.

You can find the Strip Twist FREE pattern HERE and many many other FREE patterns.

That's a very nice pattern. Has lots of movement to it. As far as quilting goes, I would do something curvy...maybe a spiral from the center out in each block...but then I don't machine quilt and that would be a hassle unless you have a long arm.

I made a Strip Twist too!! Aren't they fun to do!! I think you did a great job on yours - I used a jelly roll, and you used up scraps, so you had to think about your fabric choices, and you did great!! How to quilt it?? I am not sure.... but I am going to be interested to see what you do because I need to still quilt mine!!!

I think this is one of Bonnie's most"fun" quilt patterns. I know I've printed it out at least twice and maybe one of these days I'll get to it. I know I need light strips since most of my 2.5" ones are medium to darks. Lynn

I have always heard to save my scraps but didn't really know what I would ever do with them. This is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
