AlaskaSunshine, I tried a quilt like that as well, and I got so very confused. This pattern with the Twister templates is so much more easy to construct. The pictures I posted with the smaller border is basically the same as the larger size. If you look at the pictures I posted, you can see the template is placed on the seamlines and cut akilter, not on the threadlines. This means you are sewing on the bias, and you must be careful when sewing the final borders, or you will have waves. (Ask me how I know!) Someone else posted better pictures of Twister construction.
Search for Twister and I think it will make more sense.
I have pieced two tops and plan to do more. I have been cutting 10 inch squares from a wide variety of fun fabrics to do another one!
