I can't for the life of me figure out how to 'edit' my original posting to just add a couple more photos - - - making the Twister was a whole lot easier!
Anyway - a couple people asked/commented on the waste from this project; I'd say about a 1/4 loss - here are 2 photos
To answer the questions as to what I'm going to do with the finished blocks: a 3-block long wall hanging
AND, finally, thanks for all the great comments, suggestions and ideas. This is the BEST place for info, help, ideas, comments, suggestions and support!! Have a GR8 day.
