The Pillow Talk {Swap} - Round 3

I mailed off my Pillow Talk {Swap} pillow yesterday. I love it!!

To make the pillow front I used the Twister Tool. There are 2 sizes - the small one works with Charm Squares (like I used here) and the larger one works with Layer Cake Squares. Of course I have both tools ;0)

Here's what I started with... For the pillow I sewed together 12 charm squares and added on a border.

After cutting out all my pieces, here's what I was left with...

And after putting the pieces back together, here's the completed top...
Now I can't wait to try out the bigger tool on some layer cake squares!



And here's the inspiration mosaic I created for my swap partner to draw from... I can't wait to see what s/he has created for me!!

That is just about the coolest thing I've seen! Where did you get that great tool?
