    Lil Twister template

    Could someone please tell me when the lil twister template came into the quilting world, I have seen tutorials on you tube from 2010, but then someone told me that it didn't come out until 2011... Help please.

    Country Schoolhouse in Superior WI makes the tools. They published the first book in 2010.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Yes, the tool has been out for a while. There are many quilts and a similar pattern that has been around a lot longer that you did using templates to cut individual pieces. The Twister tool sure makes the pattern easier and more accurate.

    There are actually 4 sizes out: Twister (10" squares), Lil Twister (5" squares), Primitive Pinwheels (3 1/2" squares) and Itty Bitty Primitive pinwheels (2 1/2" squares).

    How big are the squares you use for the large twister that makes a 10" square?

    The sizes of squares that I wrote are the sizes of the original squares you sew together, not the size if each template.
