Rail Fence and Strip Twist Quilt

 I finished the binding on my Rail Fence Quilt. I only wished I made the quilt big enough for my bed.

 I started a new scrappy quilt using my 2.5" strips. I used Bonnie's Strip Twist tutorial over here.
 More strips need to be pressed.
 Here is another project I started. I used my Go Cutter circle die and cut 5" circles. I made one mistake and did not press the steam a seam on before I cut the circles. Double the work for me, because now I have to use a scissors again.
Happy Quilting,
Millie

What beautiful work. I love the strip quilting and the circles are going to be gorgeous.

what about punching out the circles with the GO! and then lining them up and ironing again? or is that too late? I just used my circle die today too

Ooooh, those Kaffe prints in the circles are favorites of mine, and yes, your strip twist is gorgeous! I knew it would be. I really like that first quilt, too. Ah, purple!

Daardie kwilte van jou is fantasies. Ek is versot op die strip twist kwilt. Beslis in my "to-do" lysie.
Sterkte met die sirkels.
