Twister or Tessellating Pinwheels

I went to a quilt group today and learned how to make my twister pattern.

I started with this

and it became this.

Isn't that amazing.
Thanks Alva.

You use a template to cut out squares and then
re-sew them together to make
Tessellating Pinwheels or
Twister Block.

There are a few websites out there in blogland
where you can see other

This block is also called Square Dance

One of the gals in the group today brought in a sample of some quilting she had done.  We learned this technique at the Ricky Tims Quilting Seminar.  You quilt in a circle by placing a pin or tack on your machine and hold the fabric in the centre and quilt in the round.

Isn't that impressive quilting?
Linda does beautiful work.

That is something that I have to try next.
