Adventures with thangles

I heard about Thangles a few weeks ago, and of course had to try them out immediately. I love HSTs, but all that trimming drives me to distraction and Thangles are a fantastic and easy way to make a whole load of HSTs from strips of fabric. 

I bought the teeniest sizes they had (to make 1/2 inch and 1 inch finished HSTs) and pulled out some of my precious Oakshott shot cottons. They really were so easy to use, although the loose weave of the fabric made the tiny ones a bit tricky.

The points are pretty good though, even on the 1/2 inch squares. I’m really pleased with how they came out.

I love the way the colours of the shot cottons play against each other. It’s up on the wall with my other recent minis – if I go insane again they won’t need to put me in a padded cell!

The edges are straight in real life, I promise!

The quilt is about 13 by 12 inches. See, I said those HSTs were tiny!

Linking up with Ellison Lane Quilts for the Modern Mini Quilt challenge, and Canoe Ridge Creations for the Festival of HSTs.
