    You don't really need any pattern, just make your own template, check out the info on the tutorials around for this, & go for it!
    I need a pattern & the tool.

    I had no idea there was a book....someone on the board said it originally was the McCall mag in 1998...I've never seen a copy of the original but it sure caught on...

    So you made your own template? Tell me more.

    Oh, and I like the contrast of the yellow border.
    Heres a picture....I just kinda guessed at the measurements, I think it is a very forgiving pattern.
    Thanks for the picture of the template. I was trying to figure out the angles. I hate spending all that money for something that seems so simple. Hmmmmm....something to play with in the kitchen this afternoon. (more Kitchen Stitchin'?)

    What size squares did you start out with...if I understand this correctly, one sews a bunch of squares together basically making a quilt top, then you recut with the template......

    I can see you have a lot of us hooked on your wonderful quilt. Cannot wait to see the outcome with the borders you have chosen.

    I see now,the yellow really brings out the lighter colors and you can see the yellows come out.

    Oooohhhh!!! That looks Gooooood!!! I made mine out of Moda's Miss Jump's Scrap Bag. When my daughter and son-in-law saw it they loved it. So guess what they're getting for Christmas? I have 52 charm squares left so I am going to put them together and see what I get. I think it will be a runner.

    I just called windy moon quilts and they have both the twister templet and one called twisted sisters for making the pinwheels. I had them put me one aside for tomorrows pick up. This should be fun.

    I assume you used your 6-1/2 template to do this. What size block of fabric did you use and what was the size of the border? Thanks, Janet

    Janet I used 10" blocks with a 6: border. actually I never ran short on a block but 10" block would be safer LOL Its at the quilters now and I'll post when its done...
