No, now all you Oklahoma quilters out there don’t start to panic. I’m not talking about that kind of twister, because we know its usually not a “lil” one. At least not the one I had the pleasure of meeting:)

It’s a tool for making pinwheels easy!

I had a class last night at the LQS, taught by the fabulous teacher over at Elsie’s Girl Blog… Shelley. Lets see if I can give you a little demo of what I learned.

Start out with 4 background strips and 4 of your favorite charm squares. I used the ever so pretty Bliss by Moda.

Sew the charms together and add the borders and you will have this square.

Place your twister ruler at angle with lines that intersect on seams between the two borders & the first square.

Cut around the entire block and continue across the row until you have something that looks like this.

Now pick them up in order and sew the cut squares together.

I made a Twisting Tables table runner from the book Let’s Twist at

Just like the book says…Fun, Fast, And Easy!
