Thought I'd share photos of my version of the Christmas tree twister. It's smaller than other ones I've seen. The first photo is pre the last border needed before cutting with twister tool. The other hasn't been squared and needs borders, but I thought I'd show it in this state. I tried to use two colors of garlands and the blue didn't show well in photo. I also went for a simpler trunk.. It's not perfect but if I can find the right fabric for borders, I'll finish it soon. I think it needs a red stopper and something with gold in it for outside border. I've been to 3 quilt shops in last couple of days, but haven't found final border yet. I'll probably use the red from garland for stopper border.

When I was on vacation, I found the new Let's Twist... Again, and it has some great patterns, even one for a heart wreath. Love the twister, my new favorite this year. Thanks for sharing the pics.

I found the heart on web and it looks fun and easy. I've really enjoyed this little twister tool and experimenting, too.

That turned out really nice...I have both of the templates but haven't done anything with it yet.
