    You have to be very very careful ask me how I know. Only do one row at a time. You can figure it out it takes some time. I got it all back together using only one square to re d, with the scraps.

    The Twister pattern is confusing at times until you "get" how the pattern works...you know the top row, side rows and bottom rows always have a piece of the border fabric. The insides match on each block with the pieces that surround them. My first twister I sewed one row at a time. I have taught this class and if they didn't sew them one row at a time I suggested they stack them and mark each row or use sticky dots and number them by row and or block. I have made probably 15/20 twisters now and just stack as I cut and sew all after its cut....its a fantastic pattern.
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    I guess I am a rebel. I cut all of mine and stacked them up and then sewed. Honestly, the hardest part was the cutting. It was so awkward and mine were not perfect. Definitely will not do one in the larger size again. Like the appearance but not the cutting.
