    This is the second Twister I am making. I love how easy this goes together, and I wanted to make a bright one for Spring. This one is for my church group to hand quilt for our March Raffle. I need to get crackin'. The "left overs" will be made into a border and then it will be sized. This is really sew fun!

    Aren't these fun. If you are going to use the scraps for a border, be sure you post on here the finished product.

    I will most definitely take pictures and keep you informed of our progress!

    It really is a fun quilt to put together. Takes longer to pull out the fabrics and cut 10 inch squares than it does to cut out the pinwheels!

    I bought one of the rulers at a show I went to and after seeing the ones posted here, I am going to have to try it soon. Lovely quilt!

    so far I've only tried the small template - bet the larger one is twice the fun!

    Is there much waste with that twister ruler? I think I would like to try it. It would be so much simpler to make and less likely to get a pinwheel wrong.

    Using the large twister to cut out the big squares, and then the little one after joining the left overs from the big pinwheels, there is about a square inch of fabric and some slivers left! This leaves very little scrap! I love it! And those little pieces are going to be used in my label. I will post picture as I go along.
