    Here is one I have been working on for a while, because I wanted it to be bigger than the original center part. It took some searching to find more charm squares but finally got them. The finished size is 42"X 48", a good lap size. The fabric around the edges is a mottled yellow & white. I could only get the stripe and the green in yardage, so to add color to the border I simply cut charm squares in half. The back is a yellow batik. Oh, I used the 3 1/2" template I made out of plexiglass.

    Thanks everyone. There are 99 twisters, plus the charm squares for the border, so it is not a cheap project to do. I used 3 packs. I would love to do a larger bed size but you would need at least 5 packs.

    That's great! I really like the row of pinwheels around the edge and the rectangle outer border is perfect. So cheery!

    Grann of 6, Your twister quilt is so pretty. I love that pattern!
    I've tried a small one, but plan a larger one.

    Great job on this not so simple quilt pattern. It turned out beautiful! I admire your effort. (I made a wall quilt that about drove me crazy!)

    I like the colors, and the way they pop, and I like the way you enlarged the pattern.
