|Pillow top featuring a single twist block from the Taffy Twists pattern|
with just a taste of something different added!
Marny here…to answer a customer's question I made a single block from our Taffy Twists pattern this week. I'd forgotten how fast and fun it is to sew up the twist block!! The pattern relies on using a scant ¼'' seam and pressing the seam allowances open, it is not difficult but consistency is important. A practice block might be in order.

|Sewn, just needs a bit of trimming.|
|The unit is seamed to one end of the twist block, matching the triangle seams.|
|The extended flaps are trimmed even with the twist block.|
|The lozenge is trimmed ¼'' above the corner for a seam allowance.|
|Using different widths of dark to either side of the block creates a pleasing asymmetry. I really like it! Now to quilt or not before making it into a pillow?|
