Handmade Christmas 2013: A Twister Quilt For Andreas, Nikki, Alex, and Luke!

As a group present for their whole family, I made Nik’s brother, sister-in-law and two nephews a Twister quilt!  It’s good for cuddling or playing!

162 (533x800)Yes, that’s a Twister game board accurately replicated in cloth!

On the back, I put an over-sized checkerboard.

160 (533x800)and cool Marimekko trees too!

164 (800x534)Polka dots on the binding for a little interest on the edges

I also made felt checkers and a matching drawstring bag to put them in. (Plus I found a old game at a thrift store for the spinner board so they could actually play the game.)

170 (800x533)

And here it is in action!

Now I just need to make one for our family!

    Hello Laura! I would love to make this for my family. Do you have a basic pattern? Thank you!

      Hi Jessica! Unfortunately no, I don’t have a pattern. What I did was look for an old twister game at the thrift store because I knew I needed a spinner for it anyway. And then I took measurements directly from the twister mat and reproduced it in fabric. Hope that helps!
