And Sew It Continues ...

... the urge to finish

I had planned to work on Radically Random (which I mis-identified on Sunday as Candy Dish).  Even got the third row pinned to the rest of the center.

But I kept hearing cries from under the piles on the work table -- 

"I need to get out of the box!"

"Finish me first!" 

"It won't take long, I promise!"

Sure enough, I pulled out Twisted Sister and within the day she was done.

Twisted Sister
An Ami Simms design, I started this one early in my teaching career when I wanted to show the block in different types of fabrics.  30s have never been my favorites and that is probably why I never did anything with these blocks.  That, and the fact that as a "set" they left a lot to be desired.  I think the rickrack plaid of the border does a great job of pulling everything together.

This fun In The Beginning fabric from 2011 will go on the back.

Twisted Sister Back

In the end, I'm happy with the finish.  Some youngster will be happy to snuggle under it.

First Finish - D4P

That's two finishes this week -- so far ;-) -- worthy of a Whoop Whoop!  So I'm joining the Friday party at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.


  1. I have some of those Insistent projects at my house also. Sometimes they are so loud that you need to finish them just to have a little peace and quiet. Great fabric for the backing.

  2. Congrats on another finish! The finish-it is bug certainly bit you this week!

  3. Woohoo!! Two finished for you! I made a Twisted Sister quilt years ago... long before blogging. It was a fun pattern to make. I'm not a fan of the 30's fabrics, either, but yours looks great. Love the rickrack fabric on the border and the backing fabric is wonderful!!

  4. Congrats! Two finishes is great! I loved that backing fabric! Sharon B in Franklin

  5. I LOVE that twisted sister backing fabric! Congrats on the finishes!

  6. Yours is one of my favorite D9P quilts I've seen so far. Love the swirly background fabric

  7. omy blocks are talking to you.... congrats on the finish. Both. The lime green one is inspired colorways. I love how dynamic it looks! All with shades of colors too. Cool stuff girl!
