|For this project you will need...|
20 charm (5x5)squares
1/3 yard fabric for inner border
2/3 yard for outer border/binding
1 yard backing fabric
1 yard batting
Lil Twister template
|Lay out your squares in a 6x4 pattern.|
|Sew your squares together in rows. You can either sew them |
from one side to the other,or from top to bottom.
|Here are all my rows sewn together.|
|Take each row to the ironing board and press your seams|
|After pressing open all of your seams sew your rows to each|
other,as before either side to side or top to bottom.
|Next you will need to press all of your seams open again.|
|Here all of the strips/rows are sewn together to make 1 large |
|Next you will need to cut your inner border fabric.|
Cut 3 inch strips the width of your fabric.
|Sew the strips to your large block/mini quilt of fabric on all sides.|
|Press open your seams.|
|At this point your large block/mini quilt should look like this.|
|Now take your Lil Twister template and line up the black lines|
on it with the seams on your mini quilt.
As shown above.
|Here is another picture of the traced templates.|
|The first row of squares has been cut out and laid out in the same|
way they were cut.
|In this photo my first row has been sewed together.|
You will repeat the steps from above.
Sewing your squares together in rows and pressing your
seams open as you go.
|This is what I had left,as I took the small wedge shaped fabric|
scraps and threw them in my scrap bin.
|All the squares have now been sewed back together here.|
Hopefully minus my mistake on your version :)
|Here is a photo of the back side with all the seams|
nicely pressed open.
|Press the seams open.|
|There you go! You now have a Lil Twister Mini Quilt top!|
|Here is a picture taken outside on my clothes line.|
You can now make a quilt sandwich with your quilt top,
batting and backing. quilt as desired and then bind together.
