HELP!!!

I have used the large Twister to make a quilt for my goddaughter. It is the right length so only need to do a border down the sides to make it wider. As I have all the 5inch squares left from cutting the top I wanted to make a border and include lil' twister shapes. HOW?

I thought if I used the same fabric as the border on the quilt and 2 squares would that be enough to do the border?

Does that make any sense?

Evening ladies/

Well I have the solution. I take the 5inch squares left over from cutting the big Twister out. Stitch them together lengthways add a 3 inch border all way round then cut 2 little twister shapes per square and border then stitch together in normal way. I don;t have quite enough to do the whole side border but I will add more of the border fabric top and bottom and that will work. Will post a picture when finished.

Thanks for all your help though ladies.

I looked in my Twister Books, but no directions for anything but a table runner.
