Several women have asked about the twist pattern.
I googled 'garden twist' or just 'twist' in quilt patterns.
I first saw this pattern with cats and mice on it and have loved it ever since.
I am excited to be finally doing another quilt for myself.

Have found the jacobean patterns I wish to use and have bought some different threads to add to the floss that i have already.
Decided to do just leaves on the small squares tho.
