    judging by the pictures, what I'm seeing is that she folded squares into triangles with stuffing in the middle and sewed around the edges using a small crochet thread with the blanket stitch and leaving a thread tail long enough to join the triangles. I believe she then used the tails to crocheted the triangles just catching the outer part of the blanket stitches to join the triangles together, probably tying one thread to the other as she went along or knotting them in the points some how. I can't see them that well, so this part is only a rough guess.

    I'm not sure I'm correct but this is what I can see in those pictures (or my imagination).

    She left many squares of fabric cut into 6 in squares. I just opened one of the ones that was just pinned. She took a 5 in square of batting placed it in center and folded all the edges up 1/2 in. Then folded it in half pinned it and blanket stitched around. She whip stitched the blanket stitches together (doing 2 stitches to each blanket stitch). I have a fairly decent size group all sewn and then these others in various stages. She left long threads on them all. I can put them together and finish it but I was hoping someone had a tip or a reason for those long threads. I was able today to get a thread that is comparable to what was originally used so at least I have that. I am short on time right now so I really will not be able to do anything with this for a few weeks. Thank to everyone for all their suggestions!
