The original version of Peppermint Twist was included in my book, Idiot’s Guide: Quilting. This new version includes three sizes and uses fast strip-piecing methods.
I really love Peppermint Twist! It is simple and bold, with its two color format. I used a diagonally striped fabric in my blocks, although you don’t have to—you’ll still get a lovely spinning effect.
Peppermint Twist is also a sentimental favorite because when I was taking photos of it one Christmas, I caught my little Lucy in a snapshot. The light was bad and the photo’s a bit fuzzy but I still like it. I miss her.
I had my longarmer quilt my version with white thread and an all-over twirling design.
