My Twisted Sisters is entitled "Hot Flashes!" (I work with menopausal women and I love spicy food!) It's the product of my first ever quilting workshop, a class with Ami Simms that I thoroughly enjoyed.
It gave me the opportunity to indulge myself in bright, wild colors. After the workshop, I read and was inspired by Freddy Moran's book, Freddy's House. She often uses black & white fabric to border and frame her brightly colored blocks. I felt that was exactly what my Twisted Sisters needed. I repeated the fabrics I'd used in the centers of my blocks to make the sashing strips and cornerstones. As you can see, I'm very much "into" stripes and checks!
