My first fun with "thangles"

I have this thing about using up small-ish amounts of fabric (especially fabric that isn't mine).  I think the pink and yellow was donated to our Project Linus chapter...not sure...doesn't really matter. At any rate, I had some leftovers from another project a long time ago and this is what I decided to do with it (it looked much cooler before it sat folded up on my sewing table for 6 months).  It was my first-ever use of "thangles," despite the fact that they've been sitting in my drawer for a few years now (and my cute sister gave me a Triangulations CD, which is basically the same concept but printable from your computer, years before that).  I have to admit, I found it very amusing to sew them.  And, it made me want to paper-piece something in the near future.

This quilt looks MUCH better in person than it does in photos.  Maybe it's because I just threw it on the floor and couch and snapped some quick shots? :)


  1. What fun! I'm so glad someone is actually still quilting around here! Did you ever find that triangulations cd? :)

    1. Still looking for the CD...I did find the reverse applique pattern I bought at Market that one there is hope. :)
