I had alot of fun using this ruler for my Convoy border. Thought I would share in steps how you make a border like mine. I see lots of quilts sewn together with the Twister ruler but not a border.
First you cut 5" squares and sew them together. If you have a charm pack that matches your quilt, it would be even quicker to whip this up! Sew a 3" border around your long strip of 5" squares.
Put your Lil' Twister ruler on the first seams and line it up with the lines on your ruler. Cut all 4 sides.
Move down to the next seam and again place your ruler on those seams and cut around. Every cut you make is lined up with seams so it is easy to know where your next cuts will be.
Continue cutting at each seam with your ruler.
You get a little bit of leftovers from the centers. I have seen these made into 9 patch pot holders. Very cute!
When you make each cut, place your pieces together in their pinwheel places.
I cut several pinwheels and then sew them together so I can keep them in order more easily.
I'm not a great piecer but look at how the centers of each pinwheel look so nice! It's very easy to "match" centers together. You really don't have to do anything but sew a straight line!
So you go from 5" squares with 3" borders around them....
