    Would someone please explain Thangles to me. What are they and how do you use them? I've seen them everywhere, but never learned what to do with them.

    Karen - I have bought the packages but have yet to try them , maybe someone here can help us with this I would love to be able to use them

    Jmncolts- this is a mystery quilt in a magazine McCalls quilting - this month had the fabric requirements and first step , we are doing it here to keep each other motivated and help with any problems

    As a group project- on New Years Day we did a Mystery quilt here from Planet Patchwork and had a blast

    Boy, there sure seems to be a lot of Mystery Quilts out there. Check this one out, if you like doing these: www.quiltbug.com/free/Tumbleweed.htm. It also started on New Years Day, but the directions are still up in PDF form. Personally, I'm still working on the planet Mystery quilt. No race, right?

    I think they look great together. You are lucky to have a stash.

    Good ideas Sharon. I like the first one the best, with beginning and ending pictures and chat in between. It could be our own Super Bowl of progress.

    i'm glad i found you, too! i gave the fabric to my husband to show my intention to make him a quilt and had this mystery quilt in mind! nice to have company! i haven't cut it yet. i'll probably be running a little behind you as my old sewing machine just fizzled on me so i'll be using my fw till i can either get a new machine (fingers crossed) or get my workhorse fixed. meanwhile, i have projects with deadlines to meet! don't want to disappoint any one! glad to have buddies to play with!! 8-)

    what fabrics did you chose? i still need to find a copy of the magazine. does the beginning instructions sound like this will be a traditional pattern?

    I really want to do this with you all. I will look in my stash and see what I can come up with, I have the magazine and pulled it to look at again after this thread was posted. Would love to see the fabrics you all are using.

    I've already completed all my squares for the first clue and they look GREAT (I've never done triangles before). I'm making the larger quilt. Wish I knew how to post photos.

    Going out today to find the magazine before I start shopping the stash. I thought I could find it at Walmart but no luck. So off to Joannes. Wish me luck.

    caroline i ordered my copy from this website. it's only $5.99 (same price in store) including postage. that is a great deal plus it saved me travel time from driving around looking for this magazine. http://www.plantedseeddesigns.com/sh...ting-magazine/

    sheepla do you have your photos uploaded on your computer? if so, you will probably need to reduce the size (pixels) of the photo before you can upload to this board. try this board tute and see if this can help you to post pics here. would love to see your triangles. http://www.quiltingboard.com/qb-help...t166655-2.html

    Thanks. My shopping expedition was fruitless. I will order the site. No more wasted gas.

    My, Sheepla, You are fast!!.
    I just now found these fabrics in my stash. The blue one on the far left is really a teal. As you can probably tell, these colors come from about 1990. And I did purchase them from Joanne's at least 20 years ago. Always wanted to make something with them! I can't wait to get started.

    I had several yards of the on the left! LOL I used to buy strictly JoAnn's 20 years ago, it was good fabric then, but now, uggg, it looks and feels like 1st or 2nd runs, flaws, misprints. You have to check every yard and both sides. Switched to Hobby Lobby.. much better

    I like your combo, rethinking mine. Thank Goodness we have lots of time on this one.
