Mini Twister

 After  you cut and assemble the Twister quilt, you have squares of each fabric left over. Sometimes people use them in the border. I decided to sew mine together, just for fun. I wasn't quite sure what I would do with it, as the squares are too small to use the Lil Twister ruler on. But I really wanted to make a Mini Twister, so I sewed a border on the quilt.
 Not a great pic, I know, but you get the idea.

 I then cut mini squares using a ruler I adapted. Aren't they adorable?

This is the piece I have left. Pretty sure I'm not going to make a new twister quilt from these...but I am going to do something with them. Maybe use them in a border for the Mini.

Apparently Primitive Gatherings has a "itty bitty" pinwheel ruler that might use up these smaller squares.

As I remember, those leftover pieces had 4 bias edges, so sewing them together was a delicate process, but then the recut little pinwheels are back on-grain. Cool!
