    Thanks for the picture I have never seen that pattern and method before.

    sounds like you need Pearle Cotton thread- I have it in many color in size 8 & 12 (I have some 3 & 5 but those are pretty thick) many companies carry it- our local joannes carries some colors. just search embroidery threads. Evening Star Designs, Primitive Gatherings and Sue Spargo all carry it too.

    Here is a picture...I know a picture is worth a thousand words!

    Oh wow! I have never seen anything like that before. I have made puffy quilts and wonder if it's the same idea? How are the triangles sewn together? I assume they are whip stitched together. I like it!

    It is a very portable project - which is really nice. There are long strings attached to the finished triangles which I assume is for attaching them. I was hoping someone would have an idea as to how they are attached. I figure there was a trick. They are whip stitched together thru the blanket stitches - it looks like she did it twice thru every stitch but I can see the pattern or how she did it with those long threads?

    correction: can't see the pattern!

    You can use perle cotton size 12. DMC has it in 40 colors, and Joann's has a sale on it right now for 30% off--now $1.95 for a ball of 131 yards (sale is good for only a couple more days--and you might have to order it online). Carolyn

    I made one of those many years ago...I stuffed them with old panty hose!! In those days, hose ran every time you turned around so I had a good supply. I whipped stitched the triangles together with double thread. I don't have it anymore....I wonder if it is still "out there" somewhere...

    Is it possible they are actually crocheted together??
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.
