Sewing Along Are you sewing triangle squares tonight? I am! Here’s a stack of Thangles all pinned on and ready to sew. I am able to chain piece the Thangles. I am just getting a good start. Hope you’re working on your Triangle Squares, too!
It took me a minute to realize that was from the back of your Bernina. Great start. Can’t wait to see the progress on the project.
All of my HST were sewn via triangle papers, no Thangles and couldn’t die-cut which was a big disappointment but they’re done and ready to be sewn together in fours. I was also planning on using Civil War Reproduction fabrics and that didn’t happen either. It’s good to be flexible sometimes.
I’m using the easy-angle ruler to cut my triangles. Years ago, I made the Bullseye quilt from your “Aunt Emma’s” quilt book. (forgive me if I got the exact name wrong). I kept the cut-aways from the circles, and they are just big enough to make triangles. How convenient!
Not sure what thangles are. Can you explain what they are and how they work.
If you Google it, you will see a demonstration. That’s what I did.
Tammy – I explained Thangles in yesterday’s post.
Pulled charm squares tonight. Gonna use the method to make eight at once.
where do you get your Thangles?
Loti – I had them leftover from e shop but otherwise I’d order online.
How many stitches per inch do you make when piecing. Also, I cannot seem to break myself of the habit of taking a backstitch at beginning and end of a piece, even though a quarter inch at either end is going to eventually be within another seam.
