What are you most proud of? This was my first "modern" quilt, my first use of charm pack squares, and my first pieced back. I have probably made 30-40 quilts over the years but this is my absolute favorite... so far.

Is there a way that I could get the pattern? I love it. It is so unique.

I'm glad you like it, Lucy Anne. There's really not a pattern. The trick is a template called the "Lil' Twister", made by CS Designs. It comes with instructions and it's easy to find videos online. Basically I sewed lots of 5" squares (from a charm square pack) together in a block with several rows and columns, then used the Lil' Twister to cut out a piece at each intersection of 4 squares. Then I sewed them back together, following the instructions that came with the template. For the upper part of the quilt I made individual twister blocks with the pink background, then cut out big pieces of pink improvisationally, building up the quilt top like a giant jigsaw puzzle. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

how can I get the pattern for the back

There really isn't a pattern I used the Lil Twister template (described above) to make a strip of twisters with grey on either side. Then I trimmed the strip to make a clean rectangle, then sewed it to large blocks of grey on either side. The back came together very quickly.

I love this. Looks like you just make extra blocks & work them into the back. Very good ida.
