Twist of Fate

One of the nice perks about hiking with Doug, is that we celebrate afterwards with a little quilt shop hopping!  After one particularly gruelling hike, we checked out a new quilt shop where I discovered the then new Kate Spain Terrain charm pack and the Lil' Twister tool.  The staff member was extremely helpful and even gave me a mini tutorial.  Armed with my new goodies, I was excited to return home to 1.  shower and then 2. give it a whirl.  I was amazed at how easy it was!
Step 1:  Sew squares together and add borders

Step 2:  Match lines on template to block intersections and cut out new blocks

Step 3:  Rotate to form pinwheels
Step 4:  Sew together blocks
Voila!

Try alternating color and white blocks to get a different effect...
Rainbow twister!-Look Familiar?!?
There are 3 sizes of templates:  Regular that can be used with 10" layer cakes, Lil Twister that can be used with 5" charm packs and a smaller twister using 2 or 2.5" squares!  Happy twisting all!
