Lil’ Twister Kaleidoscope 4-Patch

What do you get when you cross a 4-patch kaleidoscope block with a Lil’ Twister?  …a Lil’ Twister Kaleidoscope 4-Patch table topper!

So I had a few kaleidoscope 4-patches left over from the table runner (see my previous post).  By simply adding the same size squares of a complimentary contrasting fabric, I pieced all the squares together just like a 9-patch (see photo).

Then it was just a matter of cutting out the pieces from the giant 9-patch with the Lil’ Twister tool—lining up the lines on the Lil’ Twister with the seams.

The new pieces are put together creating a pinwheel design.

Not only do you get the secondary pinwheel pattern, but you get a few small leftover squares to use in the border.

After adding borders, quilting around each of the pinwheels, and adding the binding…here’s the finished table topper…


Close-up of the quilting…doesn’t it look like I “fussy cut” each individual wedge of the pinwheel?


And it’s now for sale in my Etsy Shop.  Hope you’ll stop by.



And until next time, Happy Quilting!

  1. Love what you did with this! I’ve made a Twister quilt as well (although it’s still languishing as a UFO at present, I have to confess …), but I really like the idea of using the left over kaleidoscope blocks in this way: very clever! 🙂
