Woodland Twist

This project began with a Christmas gift from my daughter of a fat quarter bundle of the Stonehenge collection of fabrics called “Woodland Spring.” I bought some additional Stonehenge fabric from their “Wilderness” collection for the background and backing. I used Jenny Pedigo’s tool the “Quick Curve Ruler” and her pattern “Metro Twist” for the design. I really like the tool and all her designs which you can find here. As a matter of fact, I was so excited by how well things were going that I took no pictures until the top was loaded and I began the quilting process!

After loading the top, the first quilting I did was to stitch in the ditch around all the curved “diamonds.” Then I outline stitched the curved diamonds and stitched close parallel lines within the outline stitching:

After all the previous step was completed for the entire quilt, I went back and filled in the “green” twist patches with a “fern” quilting design:

I used color Leather(20140) Glide thread in the curved diamonds, top and bottom. I used Superior’s Lava color Fuji for the twist patches on the top and color Light Olive(65825) Glide for the bottom thread. I used Hobbs 80/20 batting:

I was so excited by the way the quilting turned out I took these pictures even before the binding was added:

I would say I was trying to make the backing artistic, but the truth is I had to add a few leftover twist patches to make my backing large enough:

Hanging in my living room, “Woodland Twist” feels right at home in my log cabin!
