I have been reading a fantastic, whimsical book called JOY OF QUILTING by Helen Kelley and I came across a wonderful new word in her book that I had never heard of. I was wondering if anyone on the board knows what a "fangle" is? I will expose the meaning after some of you guess.

I grew up the phrase "new fangled". Like: Mable got one of those new fangled washing machines.

Fangled, hummmm, maybe anything that is used in a new way? That's a good word. Maybe if you don't tell us, we will always be able to use the word and it will be correct, no matter how we use it. LOL

I too, grew up with the expression 'new fangled' roughly meaning something new to the market. I'd guess that the actual definition means something like designed or created.

That is how we used it. Curious to know how it is used in the book.

BTW.... how do you like the book?
