Twisted Rope...

Someone asked what the pattern is for Twisted Rope - the king-sized quilt I'm making for my friend LeeAnn.

112" x 112"

The quilt looks much more complicated than it is.  There are really only 2 different types of blocks in it - the snowball block and the twisted rope block.

Snowball block

Twisted Rope block

The blocks are alternated to form the lattice look.  All of the twisted rope blocks are made the same - there are 81 I think.  And the snowball blocks vary just slightly.  Half of them have green corners and the other half have blue.  There are 100 of these blocks.


This is a picture of just a few of the blocks together so it's easier to see how they interconnect.  There are a lot of blocks to make, but each one is easy to piece so I expect it to go together fairly quickly.  Quilting it will really be the time consuming part of this quilt.  But I still don't have the fabrics back from LeeAnn, so I'll just work on other things until then...

Until later...
