Daddio's newest obsession has been keeping us pretty busy.

He does all the cutting and pinning and I sew the seams. I learned the hard way that pins put in the wrong way can end up in your fingers very quickly when sewing these crazy paper things. I got a big ouchie today.

Our first few blocks are looking pretty good, in spite of one being turned the wrong way round here. I can also see our points are not lining up quite as nicely as I would like but since we have about a hundred more to go, I am pretty sure we will figure it out soon enough.

You can learn all about Thangles here.


  1. Some of my points came out perfect and others, not so much. I noticed the ones that have the thinner material are the ones that don't match up quite as nice. Oh well, it's just fun trying something new.

  2. What exactly ARE Thangles? Are they a pattern-thingy for quilting?

    1. I added a link to the Thangles website. They are a pattern for helping make half square triangles-which we are learning are hard even with the Thangles. There will be more posts about them in the near future as the adventure continues!
