    It is not as hard as it looks. You just sew the squares together and then cut them back apart. lol It is really fun and goes together really fast.

    Probably the best way to find one is to Google "Twister quilt tool." I bought the original lil twister and the bigger one for layer cakes. Add the book and it was an investment. My bee met at my house this week--just five of us--and we tried them both out. Everyone went home with a table topper almost finished. We had a lot of fun and all turned out so different looking.

    Why don't you just make your own out of plexiglass? I made mine that way, way cheaper than the readymade ones. You can buy the sticky plastic feet at the dollar store to hold it up off the fabric to prevent slippage. There is a thread on here somewhere addressing this subject.

    I don't see them anywhere on the site!
    I only see the Twister and the Lil Twister, the original ones.
    PLEASE advise :)
    thanks Susie, I thought I was the only one who couldn't find them and I've been to that site at least 5 times!!!!!

    Diane thank you for posting pictures of your twister quilts. i have had the large size twister ruler for about a year.

    I really like your quilts. I'm getting the idea that contrast is whats important when choosing fabrics.

    Every time i see a picture of a twister quilt it starts telling me to please bump it to the top of my to do list.

    Thanks for all the help.
    Watterstide- I love yours!!

    I can't see spending that kind of money on the teeny ones.
    The other link has better prices or I may just see if I can make my own.
