    This is the second Twister I am making. I love how easy this goes together, and I wanted to make a bright one for Spring. This one is for my church group to hand quilt for our March Raffle. I need to get crackin'. The "left overs" will be made into a border and then it will be sized. This is really sew fun!

    Aren't these fun. If you are going to use the scraps for a border, be sure you post on here the finished product.

    I will most definitely take pictures and keep you informed of our progress!

    It really is a fun quilt to put together. Takes longer to pull out the fabrics and cut 10 inch squares than it does to cut out the pinwheels!

    I bought one of the rulers at a show I went to and after seeing the ones posted here, I am going to have to try it soon. Lovely quilt!

    so far I've only tried the small template - bet the larger one is twice the fun!

    Is there much waste with that twister ruler? I think I would like to try it. It would be so much simpler to make and less likely to get a pinwheel wrong.

    Using the large twister to cut out the big squares, and then the little one after joining the left overs from the big pinwheels, there is about a square inch of fabric and some slivers left! This leaves very little scrap! I love it! And those little pieces are going to be used in my label. I will post picture as I go along.

    Love the colors in your top. I'm in the process of making a little twister wreath. Just used green fabric, hope it comes out okay. Love to see the different quilts made with them. Thanks for sharing!!

    This is what I do with scraps. These are little mug rugs, only for the cup, They are Rhonda's Boston Blocks. They are 1 1/2" sqaures sewed together to make a 4" square. The second picture is the lil twister using all scraps to make a 10" square, and last this is all scrappy. I made 2 1/2" squares sewed four together to make a 4" square, sashing is 3/4" finished. All these fabrics were in my scrap box.

    All made with scrapes 4" squares

    Sharon is this one you showed in scrap quilting club? I haven't tried them with the larger squares yet. I have used 6" as my largest size but 10" sure would grow the quilt faster.

    Yes, and it is finished, quilted and bound and hanging in church for a Raffle quilt!
    I don't think I have a finished totally picture, but here it is getting ready to be quilted! I really like it, and will make more because it does go together quickly!

    Thanks. There are 2 sizes of the tool. When you use the large one, the leftovers are the right size to make the smaller twists! There is about an inch and a half square left over when it is all done. There is some left over for the border material, but the center squares pretty much get used up!
    I sewed all the little left overs together, and after I was done found one on the floor! ooops! But this is a good scrap quilt!

    All that was left over from the 10 inch squares

    Ok, am I correct in, you used 10" sqaures with the large twister template( not sure how big it is). And the scrap squares large enough to use the little 3 1/2" template? And this is the left overs, not using for twisters. I love the little twisters on the sides. I tried to make a tiny miniature using 1 1/2" squares, but that made the template to tiny. But I'll keep trying until I can make a miniature of this. I just love this pattern. I did make one using a 2 1/2" template.

    I love the way your quilt turned out, it's beautiful, I really like the little twister's on the side but don't understand how you did them, are they in the border?
