My parents moved into a townhouse last year and bought some new furniture, and one new piece was an entertainment center for their TV. I thought it looked a little bare, so decided to make a table runner for it, and match the fabric color to the new paint. I had my dad get me the name of the paint (it’s called Anonymous…what a strange color name!) I found the perfect solid fabric to match it, and I made the runner using the Li’l Twister and some pretty neutral fabrics.
I finished the top a couple of months ago but just quilted and bound it. I haven’t given it to them yet. I hope she likes it! This is the first quilty-thing I’ve given to my mom.
I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler').
I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!).
This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well.
Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI!

Great idea to color match! I hope they like it, too!
Sometimes I get good ideas! 🙂
My sister gave me the twister tool so I could make a wall hanging. I haven’t used it yet, even though I love the look of it. I’m sure your Mom will love her new table runner! 🙂
You should totally use it – it’s fun and easy. This is the 2nd table runner I’ve made with it.
I have made many twister item but never thought of mixing it with a background color. I love it. Shows off the “twist”. Patti
