    Thangles are a foundation paper you use to make half square triangles. Some people really like to use these as they give you a very accurate half square triangle.

If you want to make it, stock up on Thangles. They make piecing all those 1/2 square triangles so much easier and save on fabric too. I've attached some pictures you can see it closer for those of you who have requested this.
    Do you know if you can still get the pattern? I know it would take a while but it would be worth it. I just love this quilt.

    I played with EQ7 and reverse engineered some instructions for the "megablock" (which consists of 64 squares/HSTs). I had noticed that each megablock consists of four 4x4 squares/HSTs, which are all constructed alike.

    The megablocks are separated by sashing. If anyone is willing to work with my rudimentary instructions I'd be glad to post them, even with the EQ7 drawings. Or you can PM me.

    Go to the Buggy Barn website and contact them. I think you can get it from them.
    If not, look at my pictures. I think you can figure it out. It is made with 2 1/2-inch squares and squares made from two half-square triangles that make 2 1/2-inch squares. (The finished squares will measure 2-in. after they are sewn into the blocks.)

    So you just needs stacks of these two kinds of squares that you lay out and sew into 8 rows of 8 squares. (The trick is getting all the half-square-triangle squares turned the correct way!)

    Thanks! Yes, I'm such a traditionalist when it comes to quilts. I love hand quilting and have done it since I was a kid. My grandmother and mother taught me. Grandma did custom quilting until she died and now my mother and I carry on the tradition.

    If anyone makes a quilt using this pattern, please post you're pictures. I'd love to see this pattern done with other colors.

    I'd like to try it sometime with some of the smaller pieces combined into larger pieces (like a single square for the very middle of the block and some flying geese pieces throughout the block). Maybe I'd just use three different fabrics for a non-scrappy block.
