    I was wondering the same thing about fabric waste. It is a very pretty piece and I really like the colors!

    Yes, because it was my first one but I have looked at a few sites on line and you can use nearly every bit of it.

    It's really great. Are these twister quilts hard to make. Do you need anything special to make them.

    Was this made with the big twister and 10" squares??

    Well, looking at it again I see it's on a table so it must be 5" squares.

    I got the twister template at a quilt show a few weeks ago. Now I'm inspired to put it to use.

    I really like your quilt. You did a fantastic job. I think I may have enough scraps to do something like this. Thank you for the inspiration.

    That explains why I'm getting so many of these to quilt. I'de love to have ideas for what others are doing to make these twisters stand out. It is such a strugle for me to deal with twisters of similar look to quilt them and made each one stand alone.

    I love the colors you used. I'm anxious to try the design myself.

    I made a Lil Twister yesterday, too. Yes, there is more waste than I would like, but they're very usable squares, which I plan to use as part of the backing. I can't imagine making the quilt without a Lil Twister template available at most quilt stores or online in at least two sizes.
