    I have the small twister to use on 5" blocks. I just wondered what size the tool is to use on 10" blocks.

    The 6 1/2" must be the size to use on 10" blocks. It measures 9 1/4" corner-to-corner diagonally. Thanks for helping me figure this out.

    The large twister tool is 8" square for 10" blocks or layer cakes. There are 4 sizes available.

    I have used the small twister tool as a boarder for a wall hanging. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-128042-1.htm

    you sew 5"squares together and then using the lines on the twisting tool, cut little squares out that overlap from one block to another. really very effective but time consuming.

    What size are the blocks for the different sizes of twister tools?
    I only have the small one & would like one to make larger blocks.
    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.

    Can anyone tell me where to get the new smaller ones? I've looked online and can't find them. My LQS's don't carry them...

    The two smallest ones, can be purchased at www.primitivegatherings.us. Hope this helps. They come with a pattern so you have to buy the pattern to get the template.

    I don't see them anywhere on the site!
    I only see the Twister and the Lil Twister, the original ones.
    PLEASE advise :)

    It is not as hard as it looks. You just sew the squares together and then cut them back apart. lol It is really fun and goes together really fast.

    Probably the best way to find one is to Google "Twister quilt tool." I bought the original lil twister and the bigger one for layer cakes. Add the book and it was an investment. My bee met at my house this week--just five of us--and we tried them both out. Everyone went home with a table topper almost finished. We had a lot of fun and all turned out so different looking.
