Give a Little Twist to a Quilt Around the World |
Try Something New with This Easy and Fun Project!
This pretty quilt starts off as a traditional Quilt Around the World. Creative cutting and resewing gives it a delightful twist. While it looks complex, it’s a very simple quilt to make.
The cheerful colors and small size make it perfect for a baby or lap quilt. Once you understand how it’s made you can easily make the quilt larger by adding more blocks to the starting Quilt Around the World version.
A special template, the Lil Twister Tool, makes cutting the twisted blocks a breeze. If you don’t already have one, you can get it here.
Designer Connie Kresin Campbell, of Freemotion by the River, provides an excellent tutorial and a pattern. You’ll need both to complete the quilt.
The finished quilt is 40″ x 45″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
