    Qbee from this quilting board came to my house Thursday - Saturday, we went to lots of quilt shops, quilt shop hops, and quilt cookie shop hop

    Qbee taught me how to make the twister block with the twister ruler so I am making a mug rug, I still need to put backing on it and binding (I will make it reversible.

    this is the tutorial to show you how to make one

    That's going to be very pretty. Is it easy to do?

    I used 5 inch charms 6 of them and will use fat quarter to make binding, another fat quarter for the backing

    Love your mug rug!

    When I have some extra money, I want to get The Twister. I love all of the quilts and things I have seen.

    Isn't it fun (but I sure need to concentrate when cutting out and arranging the blocks!!) to use this new must-have gadget? I am currently making the Christmas wreath that Chilly Mac shared the layout for on November 6 post -- it's turning out beautiful if I do say so.

    I really would like to get the tool/ruler along with many other "toys" that I have seen here since joining, but with the holidays not far off I think I'll need to wait until they are over...
