    thank you everyone! I am just passing on what God has given me. God Bless you all!

    Clem I frequently wish I was closer to you all but this is the closest I can come! It would be great to have a big get together and do some sort of retreat. I quite often when giving advice wish I could see in person what that quilter is working on.

    Thanks for taking the time to explain all this. I plan to send it to a friend who can't seem to break the Thangles habit.
    You're the best!

    I only included the highlights of my HST process in this one. Here is the original tute I did and the problem solving tute I did on HSTs and points.

    This looks so very easy. I made a quilt with Aunt Dinah blocks once which had some areas looking like your Boston Block and part of this set, but had to cut everything a million different ways individually and then sew together. It took me ages it seemed. I plan to try you way from now on for HST. Thank you for your time in posting and illustrating.

    Thanks Lucy! Thangles work for some people and that's ok but I could never afford to buy the Thangles and now that I can afford it I don't see the need to. I'd rather spend my money on fabric instead!!

    I hope it works for you and I hope you like it! I do alot of scrappy so we cut small rectangles instead of strips for my HSTs but this is what I use if I do alot of the same color HSTs.
    It saves time and effort as far as I am concerned. I prefer my cut down method when ever possible. I am an impatient person and I don't like having to cut out so many seperate pieces especially triangles and then sew triangles together. Just me I guess. I am basically lazy!! I am going to do it the easiest way possible.
