Tuesday Tip: Thangles – An Easy Way to Make Half Square Triangles

Do you ever wish there was a simpler way to sew a whole batch of half square triangles? Perhaps you would really like to do an Ocean Waves quilt or a classic Bear Paw quilt but dreaded the idea of having to sew and square up a zillion half square triangles.

Well, for many years now, our shop has sold a line of paper packs in various sizes called “Thangles”. These easy to tear paper packs come with simple instructions. In fact, we have often included a packet of the desired size in our quilt kits if the quilt design features a whole bunch of half square triangle units. Yes, these Thangles are that good!

Think about it: no more math of adding 7/8″ and all that. What if all you had to do is cut strips and sew on a line?

Thangles are an easy accurate way to make half square triangles in very little time. They come in a variety of sizes and are super easy to apply to the quilt project you are already trying to sew. The first thing you do is decide on the size you need for your “finished” half square triangle. Finished meaning the size once sewn into your quilt with the seam allowance off.

Thangles are available in our store (and via our website) for all finished half square sizes from 1/2″ to 6″ finished. Each size you want to achieve is available in its own package of specially created papers.

Here’s a video to demonstrate how they work:

We really hope you will consider using Thangles the next time you have quilt pattern requiring half square triangles.

Happy stitching!
