I now know why I hear people say that they work on their grandmother's flower gardens for years.
Let me digress for one minute - one of my favorite quilts at our recent show was this grandmother's flower garden quilt which was not only hand pieced but also hand quilted. Can you see how amazing this is? It was so cool in person - those are teeny tiny hexagons! Yes, traditional - but so beautiful and timeless. It won three well deserved ribbons in the show and provided me the inspiration for my current project.

So, it was time for me to break into a new project. I was looking for something fast, and I think the Twister might just be it.
Fingers crossed, there will be a quilt top to show next week!
So, it all starts with a layer cake. I chose Sassy by Sandy Gervais for Moda. I've loved this color palette for a while and I think this quilt will be awesome in Sassy.
Next up - add a border and the start slicing away with the Twister tool.
More to come on this project next week.
What are you working on this week? I'm linking up to Freshly Pieced's W.I.P Wednesday and Quiltsy for a weekly dose of inspiration - go check out what our blogging community is up to this week!
