My first project this year was playing with Twirl. I have never made anything with a layer cake before and I wanted to make sure that I got the most use out the fabric available and that what I ended up with was a large usable quilt. Here’s what I designed and made:
Did I mention it snowed this weekend! I can’t tell you how tickled Anne was to play outside in it 🙂
The top measures 64×72 inches and I have decided to go borderless. This will be a first for me, but I just don’t think the quilt needs it. I am waiting on Twirl yardage to become available (supposed to be this week) and I will buy a backing and the binding – I’m hoping this will be my first BIG finish of 2012.
Have you entered the giveaway yet for the Twirl Layer Cake? What will you make if you win?

It’s beautiful! I’ve never gone border-less before either but I completely agree with you. :o) Lovely job! (Wicked jealous about the snow. We have yet to get any decent amount!)

It is stunning! I love how you used that layer cake.

Very cute top! It looks great on the snow 🙂 Can’t wait to see the completed quilt!
I LOVE IT!! And I am SO glad that you are going border-less. It is perfect just as it is!
So stunningly bright, love it!
Love it!!!! Look forward to seeing it after it’s quilted!
I really like the Twirl. Going borderless – is that like going topless?!? Wish it would snow here (Northern VA).
Melissa!! That is a fabulous design. It’s absolutely going to have to go on my long (long) list of “want-to-do” quilts!!
Looks fantastic!!! I can’t believe you put it on the snow. You’re crazy! 🙂
twirl is such a pretty collection … and your quilt does it justice! very nice.
Oh that is SO pretty! I agree – no border needed :0
No snow down here – 74 degrees today – I’m in a short sleeved T Shirt and sandals 🙂
Make a mini snow person for me :0
