Today I am showing you a quilt top that I have completed for a workshop. The top is now ready for the quilting on my longarm! It is called Christmas Candy Twist and is the Rabbit Hole pattern by Quilt in a Day.
I made the quilt using the Quilt in a Day 2 1/2" Wonky Ruler. There are several patterns from Quilt in a Day that use this ruler. In addition to Rabbit Hole, there are Railroad Crossing, Twisted Log Cabin, and Twisted Nine Patch. All of these patterns use the Wonky Rule to provide the twist. Since all of the patterns on log cabin or nine patch piecing, they are easy to make. The ruler does all of the twisting work! The patterns and the ruler are shown below.
The photos below show a twisted block with a white candy center and a twisted block with a red center. These blocks are alternated as you sew the 12 blocks together to complete the top..
I am excited the quilt this top! It was fun to make. If your guild or quilt shop is interested in having me teach a workshop on this or the other Wonky Ruler patterns, I would love to teach it. Just contact me. I am in Oklahoma but I do travel.

Please include a link to this page in the blog post that you are linking up. If you wish, you can include the Pieceful Sunday button as well. After linking up, I hope that you will stop by the posts of others to see their work. Encouraging comments are welcome. Quilters tend to be nurturing and supportive. I am hoping that this Linky Party will help us establish an encouraging quilting group.
FInally, I am sorry the Pieceful Sunday post was a little late. I usually post every Sunday at midnight. However, my father past away this week. I decided to cancel my trip to Quilt Market this week to be close to him, and I am glad I did. He was 89 years old, and he died peacefully in his sleep. That was what he wanted. I am going to miss him. He moved to be closer to me and my husband after my mother past away, so I have seen him almost every day for six years. I will always treasure those days. He was a good man, and he helped others, including me, to become better people. He is having a Peaceful Sunday today. It is the first of many.
Thanks for stopping by. If you have questions or comments, please go to comments or contact me by email.
