Thangle Stages

Oh those papers

Chain Piecing the strips

I have taken a break from my Bonnie blocks as I have completed the current stint and have prepped the next ones. I have things I should be doing but have instead decided to make some mini quilts for my doll's bed using HST's to demonstrate some of the patterns available, with the U3A class in mind. So armed with packs of FQ's from Hobbycraft and some fine calico, I set off,  using Thangles. A 24" square quiltlet uses 144 2" HST's. The next lot will be 2.5" units to make a 25" Broken Dishes quilt and I'll use the Easy Angle, fed up with all those papers.
The Hobbycraft fabrics remind me of those available in the 90's, now back again.
Taking shape
