    Ok...So, someone posted something about the Twister Tool leaving too much waste. Keep in mind, I just made a quilt top using the LARGE Twister Tool.
    This is what I came up with for the scrap so far.
    I cut the leftover squares down to 4 1/4" square.
    I put them right sides together and sewed 1/4" seam around the entire block.
    Then, I cut the diagonal both ways, and ended up with 4 HST, per set of 4 1/4" blocks. I played with the HSTs I made, and came up with this block.
    I'm working on using the rest of the scrap to put it into a runner. I'm going to have to change what I have, but at least it's an idea. :)

    Very nice! It has to be an awefully tiny piece of scrap for it to be useless!
