The making of a Twister Snowman

I swear I had no idea what I had gotten my self into when I started my snowman journey.
But I cut and I cut and I cut squares in blues and whites and black and reds.
Oh my there was a lot of squares.
And then I sewed and I sewed them into row after row until they resembled
a snowman like the pattern. 

This thing was HUGE.  

It is so big it drapes on the floor in my dining room. 
Where I had to move it to so I could start cutting 
the little twister units. 

Now I am getting really nervous and I have to start cutting it up into little 
pieces and I think I am going to be sick. 

You want me to do what with this quilt I have spent hours and hours on. 

But I take my little bitty twister template and I start to cut holes out of this quilt.  

                               Here is a close up of the tool and how you line it up to cut .

Oh my goodness, I have made a lot of holes.

This is how you line up the tool for row number 2.

Just do one row at a time and keep them in order when you cut
 and sew them together. 
That is really really important. 

Okay. I have one row out of 40 sewn. 
So far so good. 

Okay a few more rows. It actually looks like something.

Holy Cow I am almost half way done. 

Just  a close up.

I can't believe it I finished my 40 rows.
Now to get it off to my friend Mary V to be quilted.

This is Mary when she brought back the quilt  to me at the shop.
She is so cute and did such a great job.

All bound and finished.

I really wanted you to see a closeup of the quilting.
Because I think the quilting is a very important part of the finished product. 

It is not hard to make, but I will say you have to be a person that will stick with it.

It is nice to be done and a big relief.
Hope you can stop by the store  and 
take a peak. I hung it up today.

The pattern is the Twister Frosty by Need'l Love.

Thanks for stopping by. Janeese


  1. Really cute! How big were your original squares?

    1. Thank you. Do you mean the squares are 3" before they are sewn, or 3" when they are sewn together?
