    Looking for Twister Heart Pattern

    Have seen a hand full of pictures of the Twister/Twisted Heart Quilts, love them. Have now spent over two hours on the internet looking for a pattern and still have empty hands....
    Can some one please point me in the right direction. I believe this pattern uses the medium size template and a 5 or 6" block....I am getting the concept of the layout...but it would be less strain on my brain if I had a pattern or at least a layout diagram....If I need to buy a book thats ok. I thought this would make a great lap quilt for my Hospice program....trying to think ahead....
    Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons

    I've seen a few really cute heart twisters and they all start from just laying out your fabric to form a heart. So, say you are going to use a red and pink fabrics for the heart and a cream print for the outter area. Lay out your red and pink squares in the shape of a heart, then fill in the outer spaces with the cream print blocks until you get a square or rectangle of the size/shape you want. Then, start sewing your blocks together to form this as an entire "block" quilt and then start cuting apart the quilt using the twister ruler at each seam intersection.

    Here's a previous post on the subject. There's a pic of a layout and one of the posts gives the name of the book the pattern is in.

    There's a pattern in the second Twister book, Let's Twist Again, for one.
