    Twister Table Runner

    I got a new Twister ruler at the Long Beach Int'l Quilt Festival and couldn't wait to try it out. These are so much fun! Once again, starch is your friend with these bias edges : )

    Very pretty. Was there a lot of wasted fabric? I have the small twister but have not made anyhting with it as I have heard people say that you waste a lot of fabric. Thank for any information. BrendaK

    No pattern, just my own free motion doodling.

    There is some waste, that's why I used some leftover scraps on the back. The rest I threw into my scrap bin in case I ever decide to do applique. There's not as much waste with the Lil' Twister, which is also fun. Give it a try!

    Your tablerunner is gorgeous! I'd like to add that the waste on the Lil Twister cuts into great little 2 inch squares (a little off grain) for Bonnie Hunter's "leaders and enders." I'm sure you could cut larger squares from the big twister. I guess it's all in how you define "waste." LOL

    Great idea! I hadn't thought of leaders and enders. The bigger Twister scraps are about 4-4 1/2 ".

    Oh I love this table runner. I too have the little twister but have not used it yet.
    Looks rather complicated to me. Probably is not but I,m still waiting to use it.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    So you do need a special ruler to do the Twisters! I saw one at the last quilt show I went to and a lady there told me you don't need a ruler.

    Yours is very nice.

    I'm not fond of the twister design for some strange reason, but this is the first one I've seen that I LIKE...in fact, I LOVE it, and the quilting is gorgeous! Nice job!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
