Default How to make a Twister Christmas Tree

Here is the pattern for the twister christmas tree like I did it.
This one is done by using the mini twister tool (tool size is 2 by 2 )

After sewing all blocks and borders together, the size is 36 3/4 by 46 inches. (before cutting with the tool)

When all twister pieces are sewn together, it measures approx. 20 by 25 inches.(without Borders and Binding)

Now, you can add borders the size you like and finish your quilt the way you like.

You can also add little gifts as applique or stars. My stars and little gifts are appliqued by using a golden colored thread and small zic zac stiches on my sewing maschine.

How many 5" squares across and down did you do, if I go by your measurements I would guess at 8x9? Someone was saying in the other thread that you sew them together in a pyramid shape? Any help would be appreciated as I would really like to try this.
