    twister border....i asked for help with

    Last week I submitted a post asking for help with twister ruler measurement. Here are a few pics of one side border.

    Third pic is of the back. I really enjoy using starch now to see how flat it makes the seems!!!

    Now I understand your original question! You wanted to use the twisters AS a border not how much fabric to make a border FOR a twister row. Yours are very pretty.

    I've not been a fan of the twisted blocks but I'd not seen it in a border as you have done. I like it that way. Nice job.

    Great idea! I am going to borrow this idea. I have a beautiful crib quilt pattern that I need to enlarge for a twin bed quilt and the little twister as a border is the solution. Thanks so much for posting.
