Juest popping in to say "I am still around".... that flu this winter still has my head spinning, esp if I put my head than my knees.....I did give a quilt to one GGrandaughter for graduation that I had made prior to being hospitalized,  to  the other I gave an Afghan, which was also made priorly

I am planning on getting back to projects by fall...it has been a long road..gmakitty with caring

Peggy Stuart, How close to you are the fires?  Praying for everyone's safety.

Thanks Gals!..I appreciate your support!..I think I am going to chose the technic where you cut the square, sew around the square, then cut the square like a cross..and open up the half square triangles...the accuquilt sounds like a good idea...it is just when I am under a lot of stress with John, that having dyslexia on top of everything, makes it hard to solve problems..mentally....his Alzheimer's wares me out sometimes...the quilting is good for me, to take my mind off of John, for awhle

The LQS that I used to go to (it is closed now) had rolls of the thangles but they didn't sell well. I imagine theya re expensive to carry as stock if they don't sell. Sorry you had a bad experience there Thel. Hope you find some soon. Eleanor Burns has a method of drawing lines on rectangles to get several 1/2 sqs at a time. Maybe you could explore the automatic cutting machines like Accuquilt Go. 

Hope everyone has a good day.
