    I made my own Lil Twister Tool by using one of my 3 1/2" squares and a sharpie pen. I just marked the lines at 3/4" at each corner. Saved some $$ that way.

    The small Twister is to use with Charm Packs and the Large Twister is to use with Layer Cakes.

    Watterstide , you mean two inches larger than the tool.

    I made my own 2 1/2 tool and just finished 4 wreaths for Christmas, two smaller and two larger. The only difference between the two is the smaller is 6 blocks x 6 blocks, the larger one is 8 blocks x 8 blocks. These are so much fun.

    The 8" tool uses 10" blocks, the 3" tool uses 5" blocks, the 2" tool uses 3" blocks and the 1" tool uses 2" blocks.

    Thanks Kim, I just didn' want someone who is confused making these trying to figure it out on less fabric. I sent a tutorial to my sister and pictures and it looks so easy and is easy when you know what you are doing, but without trying it, it's a bit confusing.

    One thing I know is very important, if you make your own template,, and now that I know there is a 1 1/2", I'm going to make my own, put a mark at the top so that your ruler is the same way in every block. Otherwise it can throw the entire twister around. So there is a top, and bottom, front and back.

    this is the one I made with a 6" template....I added 2 boarders and then when it was quilted I sent it to "Quilts of Valor" for a soldier...It was fun to do...I used 8" blocks but if I did it again I would use 8".

    can't remember what the final measurement was

    If you look at my avatar, it is made with the 8" template and 10" squares I cut from dupioni silk. The quilt is a large lap size. It has silk/bamboo batting and a silk velvet backing with hand bound velvet binding.

    If you people would do a SEARCH of "Twister Tutorial" or just "Twister" you will see more info than you can watch in a day. This was covered quite thoroughly last winter or early spring.

    Let me know if you have one for sale & price.
    The 8" tool uses 10" blocks, the 3" tool uses 5" blocks, the 2" tool uses 3" blocks and the 1" tool uses 2" blocks.
    OK.....to me that just looks like a plastic square with an "X" drawn on it. How do you use it?

    And Primitive Gatherings makes 2 more smaller Twister Tools.
    They use 3.5 in sq. and 2.5 in sq. They are fun too !
    We give classes on the Twister at our quilt shop and I would say, that is the most fun way to learn to use it. Sometimes the directions can be a bit confusing....so take the class and have fun with others !
    I am working on twisters all the time LOVE THEM !
