I have seen this around for several years now made from HST’s. As a matter of fact, DENISE made a small one after seeing it at retreat some years ago! She was fascinated with the pole affect.
anyway, I looked around on Pinterest and see several names for the HST pattern - twisted pole, combo weave, ribbon quilt, are just a few.
I was just fascinated when I saw it done with string blocks. That maker called it Pole Twist with string blocks. Have fun naming your! I really like how it came out!
Red Twister for a Sister
I rather like the name "Barberpole Quilt" ... or "Barberpole Twist" or variations on the Barberpole. Cuz that's exactly what it looks like!
Thanks to you and Suze I have come up with what I'll put on the label: "This Quilted Red Barberpole Twister Was Created For My Kent State Sister".
I'll include names and dates as well but you don't need that information ....
It's corny but it is very accurate.
i know Denise would love it.
take a break. they can sit and age ina "ready for binding" pile.
Probably can not see it in the picture:
1st row word JOY between misc letters
2nd....SPECIA no L abuse quilt not wide enough maybe quilt it in
5th...left over letters
Finally finished the quilt I loaded on the longarm June 12. It did not help being away for a good part if the Summer. Having a lunch break and the gonna load the next quilt. I just reached in the bin and grabbed the one on top. It is the bargello we all made at a retreat some years back. Not sure how I am gonna quilt it but I have a few ideas.
On a side note DBIL keeps asking when I was gonna finish the one I just finished. Told him I was gonna get it off the machine today, at which he said "You are gonna run outts stuff to work on." I just laughed and laughed. I assured him that was not gonna happen. The ready to go bin has 12 tops and there are more tops not to mention UFO's.
I do hope to get started on the binding soon.
now that's a cute idea! I might just do that - those white spaces bother me a bit, that's why I started thinking about doing it as a tessellation
