    These guys at Quilt Pro just launched a Triangle Magic little program to print squares-to-triangles sheets, something similar to thangles.

    Considering that I'm absolutely afraid of triangles, what do you think is better to start making triangles:

    Buying dies for my Accuquilt cutter or buying this Triangle Magic program?

    oh please don't be afraid of triangles.
    there is a magic way done here.. two squares rights side together, sew all four sides 1/4 in. cut corner to corner =4 sets of squares for pin wheels or what ever you want..
    I did find a utube for this.
    easy ! could be for all kinds of stuff.

    Maybe it's just me, but the Thangles don't leave any room for error. I'd rather make a little large and trim back. I seem to get a better result that way.

    I like to use the method of printing a sheet of triangles and sewing them all at once. I have tried lots of methods and did contemplate getting the triangle magic program. I tried the quick method with two squares, but then all your seams are bias, and you are still not assured of the exact size you need. Then I discovered you can print out your triangles via online programs. Same thing as Triangulations, just a limit to the number of sizes, but for me every size I have needed was here.
