    I have used thangles on a few of my quilts this is the latest one.
    They is no more marking of lines to make half triangles. I have seen tutorials for this quilt made without thangles and they are so many more steps an maneuvers to make.
    Don't worry and have fun with it.

    Instead of buying the thangles, here's a site where you can print them off yourself.

    But is this worth the ink , paper, and time to cut the paper strips apart?
