My friend, Dolores, recently showed me the Lil' Twister Tool for making pinwheels. I decided to use fabric from my stash to make a table runner following instructions in the package. Above you see where it all began, with 24 charms sewn together with a 3" border.
Now it is time to use the tool shown above. You place the tool on the intersections of the charms and cut out a square using the rotary cutter.
These are the resulting squares.
Here are the squares ready for stitching together. I choose various purple fabrics for the pinwheels. All are from my stash. The inner border is a gray print. I will use a black print for the border.
I'll post the finished table runner later today. This was a fun project. A little time consuming when cutting out the blocks and you do have quite a bit of waste. Instructions say there is a 1/4 to 1/3 loss. I would agree. I would recommend a small rotary cutter because of the size of the block.
