Twizzle {Quilt Pattern}



 A few months ago, I was contacted by the Fat Quarter Shop to see if I was interested in joining a blog hop at Jolly Jabber that included designing a pattern using Jolly Bars.  Jolly Bars are a Fat Quarter Shop exclusive precut, collections of 42- 5" x 10" cuts of fabric.


 I jumped at the chance to get my hands on Hello Darling by Bonnie & Camille by Moda Fabrics.  I have never had a giant need to get my hands on her lines.....until this one.  It has the perfect amount of my favorite colors.

I had fun playing around with designs and settled on using Half Rectangle Triangles.   They can be tricky to design with and sometimes to sew with, but I've included an unique way to create them.  I love the movement of the colors.


 I really enjoyed quilting this one.  I love the flowers in the Hello Darling prints so much that I wanted the free motion quilting to capture the feeling of a bed of sweet flowers. 



As of late, simple backings have been very appealing to me. 


 The binding was a really tough debate for me, but each colorway seems to have a red pop throughout and the sweet small floral binding seemed to frame the entire quilt.


I have the FREE Twizzle quilt pattern available at my Craftsy shop to make downloading it as simple and easy as possible. As always, I strive to make sure my tutorials and patterns are thorough and helpful.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me and ask questions.

  10. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern! It is by far my favorite pattern using Frivols and I really love it. I'm excited that you're including some help with half rectangles. I've often loved the look of them but was intimidated so it will be great to add this as a skill under my belt. Thank you again!

  17. Started reading twizzle directions pg two. Am I misreading the directions for the placing of dots. The pics I understand but does the wording match the pic about the face up and face down part. The print is face up and background face down so you just move the background onto the face up print after the dots. Correct?

    1. I'm sorry it's so confusing. It feels foreign a bit. You are marking the right side of the print, facing up. And marking the wrong side (right side facing down). Then you are lifting it up (not flipping it) and shifting it to the appropriate angle (depending on the block). It feels strange to mark the right side on the print, but it doesn't matter because it gets cut later.

      I also have a tutorial. Maybe the pictures will help also. Contemplating doing a short YouTube video in the future.

  18. I'm making this right now almost finished the entire top now. I'm so excited to actually quilt it soon. My nerd husband told me it reminds him of DNA - in a good way. Thanks for sharing this pattern with us all! It has been really straight-forward to follow! I can't post photos until after Christmas (it's a gift) - but I will post photos on my blog when I can. Thanks again!
