    The twister is my new favorite this year. No two tops or designs ever look alike and they are just great for scrap reduction.

    i love the twisters. our guild is having a workshop on them this saturday. it is going to be interesting to see what people make with them. a lot are just using from their stash (which i managed to do also!) i m hoping mine comes out kinda like a wreath - i used green and white fabric. one lady just wants to try to make a placemat with hers. it will be fun!

    For everyone interested in the borders....

    I took 2 1/4" colored strips, placed 3 1/2 " brown strips on either side. Cut them at 1 3/4". Arranged the colors, then began sewing them together offset, center of block with edge of next. Then I trimmed off the irregular edges at an angle to create angle of colors. This is very easy, but time consuming...and you end up working with biased edges....so startch well!!!
