Day 12…Needful Things…

12 Days of Christmas 12Welcome to the 12 NEEDFUL things on my list this year…Please remember to leave a comment if you would want to win this one!!!  We will be picking 2 winners…one will receive a full set of Triangle Papers and the other a full Triangle Papers for Charms Squares

If you follow me or are new to me…you will find that I love quilts with lots of TRIANGLES in them…but one of the things that is common is cutting off the points of a triangle…we don’t want to do that if we can help it…I want to introduce to you TRIANGLE PAPERS from Primitive Gatherings…Triangle paper allow you to execute perfect Half Square Triangles (HST) This method is fast and easy and like we said accurate…I can find only one tiny extra step that we have to do when using the papers and that is to tear it off…now how long does that take?  I am very willing to sit and rip the papers off if it means I will have perfect triangles…Now there are other methods…drawing on your squares…but is that accurate?  I can’t do it perfect……What about just cutting them and piecing them…are they perfect? No..there are always a few that somehow turn out wonky….We have sizes from 1/2″ to 2 1/2″…and yes…anyone can make and piece a block with 1/2″ triangles in them…but I would only attempt that with these papers…Our triangle papers have been designed with what we think are the best of what we have had to work with previous to these…

I will point out some of their features…

In the 1/2″ -3/4″ and  1″ sizes you can use them to do a few HST…like a strip of them…or you can stitch the whole sheet continuously see how the stitching lines run from strip to strip?…IMG_0170the larger sizes are easy to cut apart if you only need a few…we could not do the strip feature on the larger ones and still get the maximum number of HST on a page…1 1/4″,1 1/2″,1 3/4″, 2″and 2 1/2″IMG_0178

They all have single thin lines for cutting…no more I cut on the line, in-between the lines…there is only ONE line between ours.

Clear directions printed on the covers so you will not forget a step…like shortening your stitch.IMG_0173

We also have them conveniently configured for using with any 5″ charm pack…the charm packs have 60 papers in them…so enough for 120 dark/light charms…which will make a ton of HST’s… We have them in 1/2″-3/4″-1″ & 1 1/2″IMG_0174I want you to view a (rough) video I have created at the last minute… sewing a charm square with the triangle papers… you can see how easy it all is…VIDEO

IMG_0182Remember to press with the paper still on…see how I chain press them…laying the next one on the top of the last one?  Then clip the “dog ears”.

IMG_0183Layout the block…I have two extra…will save them for a scrappy block… Now piece them into rows and then stitch the rows together. IMG_0184In the video you can see how fast they can be stitched…and in no time you have a small block…this one happens to finish at 3″ when you use the 3/4″ finished triangles….They really are not tiny until they are stitched in the block…This block shows up bigger on my computer screen then it is in real life…See how nice the points are…It’s magic…have you ever heard me say…I don’t do anything hard…it may look like it…but it is not…Fabric is from Snowman Gatherings 2…will be out in Spring/early Summer…IMG_0169


Now the one thing you cannot do with these triangle papers is COPY them on the copy machine…they have to be a 1st generation print, to be accurate…if they are all off and you have to trim them or their too short you just ruined the whole point of using them…for the accuracy and not have to cut a bizzilion triangles down to the right size…I do not want to waste my time cutting triangles down….when we can make them perfect with Triangle Papers.

TRIANGLE PAPER AND TRIANGLE PAPER CHARMS Click the link where all the sizes of TRIANGLE PAPERS are listed on the site….All of the papers will be $5.50 for this special offer….FYI am going to run a contest next year using these my papers…so you might want to get them while they are on sale!!!

    I have never tried these. If these are easier to use to match points they are for me.

  2. Cheryl Avatar

    I will give these a try. I have used the ones that are on long skinny sheets. This looks easier . Thanks

    I love the idea of triangle papers for Charm Squares. Will have to get some soon.

    Great idea! I have used Edyta Sitar’s triangle papers in the 2″ size, but haven’t seen triangle papers in these smaller sizes. Would love to try those…

  8. VickiT Avatar

    That is AWESOME Lisa! I love the charm square papers. I’ve not sen them for charms yet. I’ve been looking at all the different things sold which are similar to these and haven’t made any decisions of which I wanted. But, I have so many charm packs that these would very much come in handy for me. Great video. Thank you.

    1. VickiT Avatar

      Maybe I’m nuts but I cannot locate the 3/4″ charm triangle papers or any page showing all triangle papers on one page. I found the 1 inch charm triangle papers and others and then another page I found the triangle papers on a roll.

    Unless I missed, I think this is the first of those promised ‘tutes’. I like it!! Most of us are visual people, myself included. Thanks for the easy lesson.

    These look great, much better than the long thin ones.

  14. Betsy Avatar

    I like the variety of smaller sizes you are offering… Just perfect for many of your little projects! I just watched your video…love how it fits that charm square….you fly on that Juki!!!!

    I have used these in a kit I purchased from your shop. They do make half square triangles easier.

    I have tried the triangle papers and they do work nicely. My big problem is sewing the tiny pieces together once the papers are torn off. I don’t know why but I have a hard time with that. Is there a trick to sewing tiny pieces or is it a “keep practicing thing”.

    Have not tried your triangle paper yet but have used others and love it. Nice that you offer tiny sizes too

    Lisa, I used your triangle paper for 1 1/2″ half square triangles needed for a chevron border in Blue Bells by Edyta Sitar. I would never use anything else from there on. They were a breeze to work with and the borders came out perfect. Well worth the little bit of money spent. Thanks too for coming up with the papers for charm squares, PERFECT!

    I just recently used them for your Summer Love pattern in which the HSTs finish at 3 4″ and would have never achieved the accuracy without the papers.

    Will definitely be adding these to my PG Needful things. Thank you, Lisa.

  50. Debbi Avatar

    I’ve used the smaller triangle squares and loved them (of course!). Didn’t know you made them now for charm squares — what a great idea!

  62. Meredith Avatar

    These look fantastic, definitely a needful thing!

    I love triangle paper. You can make a block like the one Lisa showed larger or smaller by just changing the hat size without doing any math.

  64. Connie R. Spalding Avatar
    Connie R. Spalding

    Definitely a great thing to have for perfect half square triangles…your papers are awesome…especially in the small sizes. The charm square papers are a great idea. Would love to win any size of the papers though, as my piecing would be “perfect.” Thanks for your 12 Days of Christmas…I look forward to it every year.

Oh and btw I’m so excited by your previous post about the new store I can hardly compose a post!!! can you say happy dance in my Jammies?? <3 <3

  71. Sandra Avatar

    You inspired me to try these on small quilts. Yes, they are amazing!!! How else could you make 1/2″ half square triangles without going crazy. Always great tips from PG!

    Love the charm size papers. What an adorable little pin cushion the block you put together would make.

  82. Veronica Avatar

    I’m excited about the “Needful things” post again this year. The fabric from Snowman Gatherings 2 is beautiful, ( so is your star block) & while I loved the first version and made the wool snowman quilt (so fun), I can’t wait to see the new collection.
    HST when made small can be so difficult, so thanks for showing the video on a much more precise way to do this with the triangle papers.

  83. Melanie Avatar

    I recently discovered your first “needful thing” item….the HST papers. So happy you made them for smaller sizes. I have not had the opportunity to use them as yet, but as soon as the holidays are over, I have promised myself to start turning out more miniatures using them. Thanks in advance, surely will make it a breeze to sew small!!!!

  84. Linda Avatar

    Oh My Gosh! A video too. I love the charm square idea. Gonna have to order me some of these if I don’t win!

  85. ckcowl Avatar

    Oh these sound wonderful! I seem to need hsq triangles often & hate making them, no matter how careful or slow I am some are always ( off) these could change my whole attitude. 🙂

  86. Cheryl Avatar

    So excited about your needful things list. With my busy life it is some times hard to find the precious time to do what I love to do and that is to quilt and to do wool applique. When I do have the time to quilt it is nice to know that triangle paper will now make quilting HST so much faster and easier. I definitely will be getting me some triangle paper/

  97. masonmarlene Avatar

    OK. So, I have looked at these at my LQS and thought it’s just another gimmick. After watching your video I decided they are “needful things” and went on line and bought them all. Thanks for doing the video. I’m one of those that needs to see it in action first. I don’t know if that’s right brain or left brain but you sold me!!

  98. mbdquilter Avatar

    These babies are fantastic! I’ve never been able to do HSTs without them being wonky or having to trim each one of them down. These papers are no muss, no fuss … and so easy! Thanks Lisa!

    Would love to try these. So tedious to cut small HST to size.

    Okay, the triangle papers for the charm squares are quite possibly the most clever thing I have seen in quilting in a long time! I had no idea these existed! I definitely have to have some!!

    Love your designs with the triangles. But I was always hesitant to attempt them. I can’t wait to get the triangle papers and give it a try.

    Thanks for the Triangle Papers. I am so tired of squaring up my HSTs! I love them in quilts but tend to avoid starting the patterns which use a lot of them. And I have so many projects I want to do with them.

    I LOVE triangle paper. I teach beginning quilting and always introduce the students to triangle paper for accurate piecing of half-square triangles. I am delighted to see your papers for the charm squares. Thanks!

    Triangle papers make it so easy for my beginner quilters to make accurate HST so they can be successful at so many patterns. Thank you for having them available in so many sizes.

    LOVE THE TRIANGLE PAPERS! That has always been the block I’ve dreaded most because of all the work in making it-especially the little ones. After watching your video-I am sold! I like the accuracy AND the easiness of making the finished squares. Thank you for sharing

    Looks like a wonderful idea!

    I really like the way these are put together. Great instructions and you have a definite 1/4 inch edge to sew on. I am looking forward to using these papers.

    Thangles, are an easy accurate way to make half square triangles that are the right size. The only thing I need to remember to do is shorten my stitch length so I do not remove stitches when I remove the paper.

  187. Alice Avatar

    I love that you have made your papers for precuts! You are so stinkin’ smart!!!
