    I am experimenting with the "Twister" tool. The after result looks very different from the before. Preety neat little tool although there is some fabric wasteage. I am wondering how I should quilt these.

    This was made from a tool called "Twister by CS Designs" . It comes in two sizes for use with 5 inch or 10 inch blocks. You sew the blocks together and then cut out squares using this tool. It creates a pinwheel effect. Others on this board have done them. Search "twister" and you will see some very nice examples.

    Terrific results
    I've had both Twisters for a long time
    Never used
    You've inspired me
    Thanks

    I'd quilt the inner border on the outside, around the outer edge of the pinwheels and around the outer edge of the white pinwheels.
    I can't tell the size, but if necessary, I'd put a design in the center of the white space.

    What a cool way to use the tool. My avatar was my first and I've got a top put together using the 10" blocks. Very fun!

    I love it! Nice job.

    Can you show what the tool looks like? I googled but didn't see a picture. Was this a specific pattern you got to make with the tool?
