A New Twist for the Twister

It isn’t often that a notion catches the imagination of an entire industry – and becomes a staple.  But that is exactly what happened with the Twister – and the sizes that followed: the Lil Twister (Item #LILTWISTER); the  Bitty (Item #PRI946); and the Itty Bitty (Item #PRI321).

This series of patterns by Handcrafts by Jennifer shows just how versatile this tool is!  Many of them can be made in different sizes just by choosing a different size of Twister.

Quilt Moments Twist in Multiple Sizes

Marilyn Foreman has developed some patterns that feature multiple sizes of the same pattern. The size is determined based on the size of the Twister template. Brilliant!

If you want to make these quilts in a baby or Throw size, use the Lil Twister and piece them from 5″ squares (Item #LILTWISTER Retail $9.85). If you want to make the queen size piece them from 10″ squares and use the Twister (Item #TWISTER Retail $19.15).

These patterns from Quilt Moments will be the top selling patterns in your shop as well.
