    I wanted to try the Twister way of cutitng the Magic Pinwheels so had hubyb make me a template from hardboard - it worked great! The hardboard really gripped the fabric for no slip cutting!

    After cutting out the 5" squares with the 3 1/2" template, there were all these little squares left over!

    So, I figured the percentage from the original 5" to the size that was leftover. I then photocopied the template so that it would cut more pinwheels.

    These I added into the border of the table topper.

    But, guess what - that still left little squares! They are only 3/4". I was so tempted to make another template and cut again, but I ran out of time, needed to get it wrapped up for a Christmas gift.

    What do you think, Rhonda? Could the 3/4" square make a new pinwheel? LOL

    entire quilt, border has a couple leftover pinwheels & the smaller version too
