    Looks awesome bebe, and thank you rose also for all the measurements. Have to agree with Ruth, i like that there are TONS of choices for triangles!!! lol lol And me personally, i love the snap crackle pop of taking paper off of paper piecing, just like popping bubble wrap lol Paper is my favourite quilting tool :)

    I agree with you Ruth everyone can use the method they like best. I like thangles and think this CD method would be good and a money saver to me. I pay $5 a pack and often need to buy various sizes. Besides I like new gadgets. I think it is a neat idea for us who like to buy things to simplify their quilting lives.
    I do not do well with videos and insructions. I have a flying geese ruler I bought saw the demo and forgot how to do it by the time I got home. :lol: Bummer it sits with the rest of my rulers I bought and do not use collecting dust.

    I sure do use a heck of alot of thangles and love them :!: :D

    Rose Marie - thankyou, thank you, thankyou! I've made 1/2 square triangles this way for years, but I've always had to do the math anew each time9add 7/8") :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: . Now I can just take out your directions - you've made it so simple! :D :D :D

    Rose Marie you were a life saver last week-end. Had a pattern that cut the triangles and then sewed them together. Thought to myself, nah!!! going to try Rose Marie's suggestion. Worked great! Thanks...

    If you are the obsessive type - you can trim/true your sewn triangles to exact size after they are sewn and pressed.

    I'm a pretty good piecer, but sometimes they just don't come out exactly "right" and trimming the sewn squares sometimes makes sense.

    Glad to help. I tried so many ways till I found Els way and now I make perfect triangles every time.
    Be sure and get her triangle square up ruler, it makes it even simpler to square up the triangles.

    Bebe and I are the same on Thangles ! They are slick! No thinking, just cut two fabics the same size ( square ) as the already measured paper cheat sheets !!

    Have used them for nearly 5 years now !! I have parkingsons. anything that can help me and not make me thing too much to reserve energy !
