    Well I finally finished this block of the month quilt and it is now on my couch. It was another one of those Thangles quilts. It took me a year to make each of the blocks, then my father in law passed away and I just was to busy to finish it.

    Took it to the longarmer and got it back in 2 weeks and bound it in two days. Now it is my cuddle up blanket on the couch!

    Awesome quilt colors are great. I am starting one of those thangles bom now with moda sugar pop. I still have't had time to figure out those thangles yet, it's my first time doing a bom. Sorry for your loss. Marilyn

    Thanks, I am a fairly new quilter so making the half square triangles with the thangles paper is much easier for me than cutting the 2 7/8" blocks, anything that is 7/8" trips me up big time!

    Hey Marilyn - a tip with the thangles I have found that when I get my two strips of fabric from the quilt store it is much easier if I cut them into sections the length of the thangles paper, otherwise I have had shifting and I dont get a real nice half square triangle. I usually cut 4 or 5 sections for the thangles papers and then the left over fabric I use to cut my solid squares that are usually dispersed in the pattern. Hope that helps. I am now making thangles quilt #3 right now for 2011 from my local quilt store, I think this will be the last one since I am learning more and can move on to a more advanced quilt.
