    I love your Twister wallhanging. As others have mentioned, use your scraps for a border or a couple of matching placemats or mug rugs.

    I agree... the colors are super! I think all-over quilting would really suit it.

    My Twister tool just came & so far I find the printed directions really confusing (you only put borders on 3 sides? Huh?). Am I alone in that thought? I may look on You Tube & see if there is a tutorial. I learn better by watching.

    Please post again when this little gem is all done!

    Oooh, I love this twister wallhanging, the fabrics are gorgeous. I am a twister fanatic and have 3 ready to cut up and sew back together again. I use the scraps for mini projects because I foundation pieced and ANY left over scraps are perfect for them.

    I don't see it as fabric waste. I use those pieces for all sorts of things. Your quilt turned out great.

    I finished one not too long ago. I stitched around each pinwheel with regular thread, then I did like a flower petal in each spoke of the pinwheel in metallic thread.

    i Think that's why they came out with the mini twister tool... rejoin those scraps and make a mini twister.
    I quilted mine with a continuous curve (orange peel/orange slice)

    The quilt is darling. Yes there is a lot of waste. Do you crazy quilt. Or take a foundation of a very light interfacing and stich your scraps to that. You can then cut a border from that.
