Lil Twister Mini Quilt

I have a casual "to do" list for quilting projects and was able to cross off two items at once with this little quilt, Terrain and Lil Twister. Terrain, by Kate Spain, is the focus fabric and I have been wanting to make something with it for awhile. I also recently bought a simple tool called the Lil Twister template that helped immensely in cutting out these pinwheels. There is a good tutorial here explaining how to use it. I like the finished result very much, and it wasn't difficult to make though the cutting part is a little fiddly.

The background fabric is Moda Bella Solid Terrain Iris and is a deep bluish purple. It is hand stitched with orange and purple embroidery floss. The finished size is a bit over 18" square. There is more Terrain on the back.

This quilt will be entered into the mini category of the Tangerine Tango Quilt Challenge, which has been organized by two quilting bloggers, Erin at Two More Seconds and Ali, at asquaredw.
