Of course, if you use the original seams, it might make sense--maybe.
    Sorry, but the first top has to be sewn together to get the Twister look. Yes, you do have waste. The second top is about 1/3 the size of the first top, but there is no other way to get the look.

    The Twister rulers are available at most quilt stores now. When you purchase a ruler, there are instructions on how to do the quilt!

    That is beautiful, but for some reason the tool intimidates me badly. Have had the tool for over a year now and have plenty of Christmas fabric (all folded in a 13 gallon trash bag on my closet floor). Thanks for the inspiration and sharing.

    Just beautiful. I've made a couple of the twister quilts but not Christmas. Good job.

    You did a great job on it. I was wondering how these were done. I found a video on You Tube in case anyone else was interested. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-d1sqIfUctQ
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Amazing that something so plain can end up so beautiful! You did a great job but oh the work. :-)
    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING... (Borrowed from Airwick156 :-)

    The twister is easier than it looks. And they turn out so nice. I think it's a fun process.
