    I have tried to find pictures, tutorals etc for quilts made with the Twister template. I have figured out how to cut out the little squares but now I need some pictures or suggestions about how to put them together. Thanks to anyone who can suggest.

    Are you using the template? You start with big squares stitched together and add the border. Then you use the template which cuts the original squares "tilted". Then you stitch them back together straight up. They are still squares.

    Have you tried a search for twister here on the board? There should be several pictures of some quilts.

    the number of 5" squares & your grid will determine the end result I think.

    Yes, I used the template that I bought and then cut all my twister squares. That was the end of the directions. Now I kept them in piles according to the line I cut them out in but that's all.

    I have 36 twister squares, so I guess I need suggestions or pictures. All I can remember seeing was the beautiful wreaths done with twisters.

    My Dec. Avatar was a twister wreath - inspired by a post...
    . Search ‘Twister ” ~ find Nov. 6 post by Chilly Mac.
    After looking at her layout, figure out the placement of each cut square which isn’t too hard. PM me if you need more help.
