    This week I made a Lil' Twister and remembered some of you commenting on the scraps left over . . . so I thought I would give a visual of the left overs. My twister is 4x5

    square pieces are 2.5+, very usable for future projects ;) Dark blue will work for my future crumb quilt

    This is just beautiful. Love the colors. Now I KNOW I HAVE to get this ruler. Will call my two QS and see if they have one. Have to wait to start sewing, however. In the midst of remodeling and machine is packed away for safe keeping.What size ruler did you buy?

    I have both sizes. Both sizes sew up quick. I make a great size top with the large size in about 5 1/2 to 6 hours.... but love the small size for quick projects/gifts. Did you see the post about the Christmas Wreath done with the Twister? http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-65306-1.htm#1601560

    Gorgeous quilt. I must try that pattern someday. Scraps, did someone say scraps. I am like Pavlovs dog, the salivationg has begun. I love scraps of all forms and shapes. I am a scrappy person.

    Did you happen to take a photo of the piece before you cut it? I love to see the before and after.

    Sorry, no I didn't even think of a 'before' picture. Maybe, when I do my next one (these are addictive), I will try to remember to take a picture.

    What size rotary cutter did you use?I noticed you have to be careful using the 45mm.The cutting before and after the corners is what messes up the scraps.

    yes, I did use my 45mm and yes, I was careful at the corners. When cutting the key rule is pay attention and no swoosh cutting!
