    That's a clever solution to what may have been a problem. I like it!

    That is pretty cool. I see the center blocks with photos! What a great concept for a photo quilt!

    I just bought the Lil Twister and the June Tailor Twist and Stitch. I haven't tried them yet, but can't wait to give it a shot!

    Farmquilter, actually it isn't all that difficult. If you have the Lil Twister tool, it comes with instructions and a layout that is 4 blocks by 6 blocks. I used two different fabrics and made 3 4-patches of each color. Then layout your 4-patches in checkerboard fashion. The horizontal rows have 2 4-patches, one of each color. Then the second row the same but the colors are switched. The 3rd row is the same as the 1st row. Then add your 3" border all around.

    When you cut the twister blocks, you will end up with what you see in the pics. Just take out the solid center blocks and replace with different fabrics or photos.

    How interesting, I really like your experiment. That's how we learn to make new pattern's. It is going to be so nice. I hope you will share with all of us again, when you are all done making it.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    It's finished! First pic is a closeup of the stitching around one of the squares (it's the same on all of them).

    Second pic is the entire piece.

    In the third pic I have a corner folded over so you can see the back:
