    I saw these at a quilt show this past week in Newport, Oregon and really want to buy the 10" one to make a quilt for my daughter - my friends bought the small and medium one - I guess I will have to spring for the big one and we can all share - the smaller ones might work on the leftovers from the big one????

    I used the waste to make smaller twister, I made my own template for the tiny scraps from the 5" one. From the 10" you should have a good size to work with.

    I was at JoAnn's today and saw there was a twister tool for $20.99 that has sizes from 3" to 10". I bought one at a LQS for the 5" squares and that was $10 so this is a good buy with a 50% off coupon

    It was one large template that had the grooves in it to cut the different sizes. Something like the Eleanor Burns ruler that cuts 1 1/2", 2", 2 1/2" with the slots
