Peppermint Twist in Quilter's World Autumn 2019 issue

While we are basking in Summer's heat here in the Midwest, it's the perfect time to think about Fall and Christmas decor.  In less than a month, the kiddos will be back to school, the fall decor will be coming out of storage and Christmas will be hitting retailers shelves!  Yikes!  I know, I'm rushing the seasons as my Grandma would say. 

Well you can get a start on your Christmas decor with the fun Peppermint Twist quilt that I have designed which is in the Autumn 2019 issue of Quilter's World magazine.  

You know this design is special when both of my pooches are giving it their paw of approval!  Zoey, top, is reading through the pattern, while Lilly, lower right, is making admiring the magazine photo!  It's a rarity that they two are actually posed at the same time, so I had to share ! 

Peppermint Twist was inspired by the traditional red and green candies available during the Holidays.  The pinwheel center mimics the twist in the center of the candies and the half-square triangles at the diagonal ends of each block are reflective of the tightly twisted cellophane wraps.  

At 57" x 76",  Peppermint Twist is the perfect size for a twin guest room bed or a snuggle quilt for Christmas guests.  

Warm 80/20 batting was graciously provided by The Warm Company for the sample quilt.

  1. I really like the red and green for Christmas. If I had to pick another color it would be blue and silver.
