    Very pretty! I have the "Lil Twister" but haven't tried to use it yet. You have inspired me to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

    Here is the link for a great tutortial on the flange binding. It is easy to do and gives a nice look to the quilt. I use it on almost all my quilts now. I was hand sewing the bindings down and with arthritis is was making binding quilts very difficult for me. This is simple and all done by machine and in my opinion very nice looking. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NY89RqQhPQ

    The ruler I used required you to start with 5" squares of fabric. Sew all the 5" squares together in however many rows you want. Then you use the Twister ruler to cut them out to get the pinwheel design. The twister ruler is 3 1/2" square with a finished block size of 3". My quilt, after quilting and washing, ended up being 47" x 60". I used a 14 x 19 block layout, then a 1" stop border of light shirting and then the scraps from the quilt for the last border.

    I used a 15 x 20 block layout. You can figure your quilt size by calculating each "finished" block will be 3" square. In other words, your 5" cut fabric block will finish at 3". Hope that makes sense.

    I used a 15 x 20 layout. 300 total squares to start.

    I started with 15 x 20 layout, but after cutting the pinwheels with the Twister ruler it ended up being 14 x 19 layout. The part you lose around the outside edges after cutting with the ruler is what I used for the border.

    Now that's a twister I really like. I agree with dunster, it's more sophisticated looking than most twisters I've seen. I need to get busy with the scraps!
