Default Itty Bitty Twister Tool

Does anyone know the side measurements for this ruler?

I guess what I meant to say was how far up from the corners are the lines. Sorry. But thanks.

forthe ittybitty you cut 3-12" squares,

the ruler itself is 2-1/4 inches square

and you 'twist' the ruler to get the odd sided cuts

does that help?

I had to watch the video to 'get it'

I made the pumpkin twister pattern last year, if I knew how to post a pic I would, but it uses an egnormos amount of fabric, there is an awful lot of waste and the pattern was difficult to follow, consider myself an intermediate quilter & had to call the designer 2x for further instruction, took it with me to retreat to start and no one else could figure it out either. I have 3 sizes of the twister rulers and would have to be desperate for something to do before I would do another one. Not that desperate, YET. LOL

I thought I could help you but I got my ruler out & it is the little twister. Not the itty bitty. I didn't know they had a itty bitty. Sorry

I don't have the itty bitty but I have the 2 larger sizes and have made several things with the medium size. I did find to not overcut each piece as they are close together and to quickly add the cut one to the row and not just set them aside to line up later. Have fun with yours.

I love doing twisters. I made a Christmas tree, bunny, heart, wreath and pumpkin. My first project for the new year will be the shamrock. I agree, you have to cut carefully, I trace, then use my scissors. I also line them up as I'm cutting them. Easier then to sew them together. I'm never disappointed in the outcome.
