Chookyblue 2022 part 8...........

 Given Janice and I brought a bundle of fabric each back in 2013 to make out twister quilts......life happened and we never got to make them together........so we had both located our fabric bundles again complete with notes - who knew I could be so organised.........

Anyway we decided to make them at Scrub Stitchin' so we mentioned to the girls what we were doing and if anyone wanted to join us please do............
Jo flew out the gate and the above and below results..........Love the brights...........
Janice threw Jo a challenge to make a mini twister with the left overs............Now this does not use the 5in template...........I think it's more like 3.5 or 4in..............
its one Janice made up..........

Jo being Jo jumped right in and made this from her left overs.............its about 12in square..........I love it........she turned it into a placemat/cutlery holder..........
Jenny made this blue and green version..........
My mum used to say "blue and green should never be seen" I always wore it together as I love the combination.........
It looked great twisted........
My niece wanted to make something...........
so she made a table runner using 5in squares........
Cut out ready to resew...........
It takes a village to raise a child and thanks to the team effort Izzy got her runner done and even machine sewed the binding down........Thanks everyone for your help......you know who you are........
Mary made this pretty Tilda version.......
I missed taking photos of her runner.........and I had to get this photo from Mary
This one was mine.........
First border after twisting...............
Second border on............the quilt does drop in size as you use 10 in blocks and they reduce to 8in when cut............but i added size back to mine with the borders...........
Loving the colours so far.......
Janice had the same fabrics but chose not to use the whites..........
Different look even though we are the same..........I do like the lines coming thru also...........she has borders to add to this also.......
And Brenda..........she made this runner............
What fun the twisters are.......I will be making more............
A couple other girls Julie and Peta got the tops pieced but didn't have the first border fabric so got stalled.......I'm sure we will see them finished next year.......
This ends the Scrub Stitchin' retreat posts and back to regular posts..........

Keep the love of blogging alive......
Catch you later...........
Chookyblue.....

The quilts look great, I can't believe Jo got that tiny one done.
