Let's twist again. . .

This is a pattern called "Strip Twist" from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville website.  At least, these are the blocks for the pattern - not joined together yet.  I just cut these strips out yesterday morning.  The blocks went together like wildfire.  Joining the rows always takes longer for me.  The colors are dark red, pink/rose, gray, grayed green and tan, with shirtings for the neutrals.  I like the muted look of the palette.  It was inspired by a photo on the Quiltville group of this quilt made using a collection called Azalea Trails.

I'm waiting on a brain burst for border ideas.

I never did figure out a good border for the one I did and ended up doing a 'slab-o-border'. It seemed to settle the eye after that super busy center.
