    I have been lurking mostly reading everyone elses comments.
    Someone mentioned a Twister Ruler (by Ck designs). They
    gave me a link to Heartlight Quilt shop. I finally got it and
    this is what I did. The first picture is just charm squares. 24 of them sewn together. When you cut them using this ruller they
    come out like pinwheels. See second picture. Sorry for the pins.
    I will quilt it tommorrow. But wanted to share. Also thank you
    to whoever mentioned it.

    Do you really sew squares together like that and then cut it up? I must look into this!

    yes I just took a pack of charm squares and sewed
    them together. It was so easy it took me only a
    couple of hours total with borders and all. It was so
    fun that I got so excited I had to share with everone.
    Even went to the quilt shop and shared. They are now
    going to buy the rulers and books for the shop. Was
    glad I could help promote the idea it is so fun to do.

    Wow, a ruler for this....I made one many many moons ago, but without a ruler. I'll bet it would have gone much faster with a new tool! good job

    Here's a link that shows how it's done:

    http://modalissa.blogspot.com/2010/0...-not-game.html

    The ruler comes in two sizes. Here's a link for the smaller one for sale. I've ordered fabric online from here before. Great shop.

    Here is a picture of the template or ruler whatever you call it.
    Also a pictue of the quilt on the front of the book. It is CS designs, www.country-schoolhouse.com (715-398-0150)
    is the one who designed this. Hope this helps. I had so much
    fun doing it.
