    This is my first post. I have learned so much from all of you. I just finished a twister quilt top and used all those little squares to make a pieced boarder. I've not seen this idea, so I thought I'd share. Hope my pic shows up.

    Great idea. I've not tried one of those because it looks like it would waste so much material. I like your solution to that problem!

    Pretty quilt and a good idea to use up the little pieces. Gotta get busy on one of those twister patterns.

    The twister is my favorite. I have 3 of the 4 sizes, can't wait to find the smallest one. If anyone knows where I can find it, would appreciate the info. I have the ones for the 10"squares, the 5" charms and the once for 3" squares but not the smallest one.

    You did a great job, the pieced border really adds to it!
