Peppermint Twist

peppermint twist with words copy, small

Lots of couch time meant lots of binding/editing time last week!  This is such a fun quilt.  I already have my spot mapped out where I’m going to hang it for the holidays.  I like that its bright and cheerful without any “Christmas” fabrics, but is still very festive and whimsical with those pinwheels that look like candy.

The quilting was done by Christina and is perfect as always, those tight swirls in each pinwheel totally make this quilt.  I quilted the table runner and hot pads…which means don’t look to close.

The quilt measures 45” x 45”, and the table runner measures 16” x 45”.  The patterns includes instructions for both and two hot pads.  This would be fun in non Christmas colors too…maybe like green and blues?  Or brown and oranges?  Hmmmm….like I need another project.

The pattern is available in the pattern shop in PDF or hard copy form.

Pin It!

What a festive quilt, I can't wait to dig into your blog more, and feel better, those kidney infections will get you everytime. I got one days after delivering my daughter.

So cute! I'm so glad you didn't tell me it was going to be quilted for a pattern cover shot. :) That would have made it so much more stressful!! It was such a cute quilt to quilt and I love how it's seasonal without being over the top. You did a great job piecing it!
