11 days until Christmas!!!

12-days-of-xmas-ornaments-11Still lots of time left…no worries…right?

Day 11 is Triangle Papers…with so many people who do not know the value of triangle paper…this post is for you…img_9904-copy

There are two types of quilters…those who know about triangle papers and use them and then those who don’t know how much better their quilting lives would be if they knew about and used triangle paper…

First off using triangle paper is NOT paper piecing…I do not care to make a whole block and then rip the paper off the whole block…I get that this is an accurate way to do very complicated blocks sometimes…but I do not care to do it..

Triangle papers aide you in making perfect HSTs and then the paper comes off and you stitch your triangles into blocks, borders and so on…

Slowly.. I have been turning quilters “on” to using triangle papers…how many of you never used them before the Magic of Christmas blocks?

Its real simple- watch……you need a light & dark fabric- I’m using 2 light and 2 dark charm squares to make a 4″ finished block using 1″ HST papers…I can make the same block using only one light and dark charm if I use the 1/2″ and 3/4″ HST papers…and yes…thats a mini charm next to the 2″ finished block.lisa-bongean-triangle-blocks

 

Starch both your fabrics completely wet-let them dry naturally-I hang them so they dry faster…img_9101

Lay them right sides together- light fabric on top.

Trim and lay triangle paper on top of light fabricimg_9102

img_9106Shorten your stitch length on your machine…I usually stitch at 2…I’m moving to 1img_9104

Stitch all the dashed lines.img_9107

Cut apart on all the solid lines.img_9108

Lay the triangles on the ironing board with the dark triangle up…press all the triangles to the dark fabric.img_9109

img_9110Grab the short side of the triangle paper with your left thumb and then push up and rip the triangle paper grabbing from the middle of the paper triangle close to the seam and pull.  This is if your right handed.img_9111img_9112img_9113img_9114img_9115

 

img_9116img_9117

Now you can cut the dog ears off…but look how little they are (on 1/2″ and 3/4″shown below in brown) they are not 1/4″ dog ear…more like an 1/8″…I usually leave them on…when they are this smallfullsizerender-5…in the bigger size triangle paper they are larger and I will cut them off, as shown here

Now they are ready… I stitch them into a block!img_9119

img_9120It really doesn’t get easier…This method is so much more accurate/faster than any of the traditional methods of making HSTs if you have to make lots of them.  When doing the MOC blocks I tried one block with and one without…it was so much nicer and my blocks were so much more accurate this way…This blocks comes out to a perfect 4 1/2″…unfinished.img_9124

Now the Triangle papers come…two ways…

In sheets…1/2-hst-paperyou can stitch the whole sheet OR you can cut a strip or however many you need for your project. We have them from in 1/4″ increments ranging from 1/2″ all the way up to 2 1/2″ and also two VARIETY packs…one with the smaller sizes and one with the larger sizes.

I will list a few of the details…from the sheetsimg_9902-copy

A sheet of the 1/2″ makes 84 HSTs and 1 strips makes 14

A sheet of the 3/4″ makes 60 and 1 strip makes 12

A sheet of the 1″ makes 40 and 1 strip makes 10

A sheet of 1 1/4″ makes 56…they come on full size 11×17 sheets, once you get over an inch.

A sheet of 2″ makes 30 per sheet…

They also come in CHARM configurations in 5 sizes…1/2″ 3/4″ 1″ and 1 1/2″.  You would use two charm square and place the paper on the light…stitch all the dashes and cut apart on all the solids…The Charms also come in a  Variety pack as the 5th size.img_9905-copy

The 1/2″  and 3/4″ make 18  HSTs per sheet using 2-charms squares

The 1″ and 1 1/2″ make 8 HSTs per sheet using 2- charm squares

Just to give you some info…

The only thing you cannot do with the triangle papers is to COPY them..they must be a first generation print from a printer and NOT a COPY…trust me they will not be correct…some will be small… some will be big…some say well if they are big I can cut them down? Really? that’s wasting so much time is unreal….You don’t want to trim your HST ever!!! Such a waste of time…make them the right size from the start…There are a couple of other Triangle Papers out there on the market…I do not like any of the ones for tiny triangles 1″and smaller…ours are perfected and that is why I designed them…

Again… the possibilities are limitless…here is a 2″, 3″ and 4″ block all made fast & easy from triangle papers.

Here is the link to our website…to see all the Triangle Paper Options They are on sale…reg $7 & $8.00 for the Charms….sale $5.60 & $6.40…Sheets are $7-$10 reg…sale$5.60 and $8

My daughter told me this week that “I’m kinda getting bad at the Santa thing”. She knows she’s getting a smart TV for Christmas but she was home from college and saw it in my bedroom unwrapped. I didn’t make it a point to hide it. I gave her a look as if to ask “problem?” then she said “I really like it though!” It’s not what I thought I was getting. The kids (3 of them) have gotten older and it’s hard to surprise them with things they’ll like. They tend to like the bigger gifts and when you’re spending that much it’s important to get the right model etc. With that said I only have a few more things to get. All gifts still need to be wrapped and some decorating still needs to be done. In my defense we just got a new puppy 3 weeks ago. He’s a Pomeranian and weighed just 1.6 lbs when we got him November 23rd. He’s taken a lot of my time! Not to mention I’m pretty sure he’ll unwrap any gifts I put under the tree. I haven’t even put the tree skirt under the tree yet for fear he’ll potty on it or chew on it.

I’m sorry this post is so late in the day…but it was a long over due hair appointment…and Jace was over until late afternoon…I want to post a pic of some of my decorating…but I am missing some things…like the curly willow I wanted to fill up these buckets..spray painted red?…It’s way too cold to make Nick go outside and cut some off our tree!lisa-bongean

To win a whole set of triangle paper charms  or triangle paper sheets…2 winners, …please comment if you have used the Triangle papers yet or not… or if you have a question regarding them that I did not answer in the post please comment!…winners will be picked tomorrow!!!

Baby… it’s cold outside here…time to snuggle in for the night!…LB

    I have not used triangle papers, but I know they came in with the freebies from your November special weekend. I also see they are needed for the MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS, which I probably won’t start until the spring. Sooooo…. I should go to each pattern page and find out what’s needed and order them! Unless someone out there already knows and could save a busy Christmas Elf a little time? Ho, ho, ho!

    I have been hoarding triangle papers for a long time. I get them out and look at them occasionally, kind of pet them and admire them. Then I put them away. I’m going to use them soon. I’m sure of it.

    I purchased the triangle papers at the International show last spring from Nick. I thought I would experiment and see if it would be a time saver. LOVE them for all the itty bitty HSTs. Waiting to see what necessities are in the other remaining 10 days before I stock up for this winter.

      Hi Lisa, thanks for all the photos on how to sew these up. I have collected quite a few packs of your triangle papers, but have not gotten to sit and sew. Hopefully, the New Year will allow more sewing time for me!! I am a visual person, so the photos really help, and know I can do it now!!

    I have used another brand but I like the way yours are laid out on the paper to use as whole sheet or cut apart. These would be wonderful if having to make lots so hst’s. Would love to try these.

    I love, love, love Triangle Papers….Lisa introduced me to them several years ago at the National Quilt Show in Lakeland, Florida when I purchased a quilt kit at your booth. I have used them ever since for every quilt I make. The 1 inch is the smallest I have tried. I want to make some miniature quilts so have to order some of the 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch size. By the way, I really miss your booth at the Lakeland Show every year. I haven’t been the last two years because you weren’t there. Boo Hoo!

    December 14, 2016 at 5:54 pm

    Would love to try these Triangle papers. I am a new quilter and this seems it would be so helpful and time saving. I love small quilt pieces and these triangle papers would be more accurate squares. Thanks for the pictures showing how to use these papers.

  21. 22 laura
    December 14, 2016 at 5:54 pm

    I have used them periodically but only when it is suggested. I usually make big and trim down or do what the directions say…cut 1 7/8 in half. I don’t like working with triangles and would use paper more if I knew what size I needed to use to substitute them for what size of triangle cut in half. Also never now what size to cut strips…I.e. size of paper or a bit smaller.

  22. December 14, 2016 at 5:55 pm

    The first time I used them (and starch for that matter) was at the retreat in November! What an eye opening experience and my blocks were near perfect!

    For you Monkees fans: …and I used this technique….now I’m a believer. 🎤🎧

    I have used triangle papers once and loved the method. Looking forward to using them again.

    These papers are the best!!! Been using them for about a year and could not have made the Magic of Christmas blocks without them! My blocks are all done but can’t decide what setting to finish with!!! Thank you for all you do Lisa!!

  26. 27 Susan G.
    December 14, 2016 at 5:57 pm

    I haven’t tried the triangle papers. I don’t do a lot of quilts that require HST’s because they don’t turn out very well. So, maybe if I tried the papers, I will do more quilts with HST’s.

  27. 28 Sharon H
    December 14, 2016 at 5:58 pm

    Yes I have used them & love them especially if I’m making several 1/2 squares the same color!

  28. December 14, 2016 at 5:59 pm

    I’ve never used them but your tutorial sure makes me want to give it a go. I’ve tried your method of starching fabric before cutting and wow! does it ever make a difference when piecing!!

    December 14, 2016 at 6:09 pm

    I’ve used other triangle papers but not these that you have designed. I am especially interested in the charm size….what a great way to use some of the charm packs that I have collected. The cold air arrives here tonight. I just built a fire, the tree is decorated, now to get the presents wrapped!

    I have not used triangle papers. In fact, I was just reseaching this very topic in one of my Facebook Group I belong to. I mentioned PG papers, and got various responses. One member said your papers were very good and recommended them. I had made my decision to purchase my first papers from you. Today’s post was very timely for me. Thank You for all your instructions! It is greatly appreciated,

  43. 44 Marsha Gardner

    December 14, 2016 at 6:10 pm

    I used to oversize HST’s and then cut them down, but you’re right, it seems like a waste of time when you can make them once with the triangle paper. I use them now all the time. Especially love and use your charm square size!

    • 47 Tammy Berry
      December 14, 2016 at 6:14 pm

      I see you press your triangles before you tear the papers off. I always tear my papers off before I press the triangles, and then I use steam. Do you use steam since the papers are on them?

  46. 48 Carol joswick
    December 14, 2016 at 6:12 pm

    I have used HST papers for the Rocky Mountain Puzzle SBOW 2012. I couldn’t believe

    • December 14, 2016 at 6:22 pm

      I’m making a chart for you…and the starch can be washed out if/when using the quilt, but no it doesn’t have to be…starch is not made from cornstarch anymore…therefore this old issues we had with cornstarch are gone…

    I was first introduced to the triangle strips when I purchased your wool flower wall hanging years ago. It has a border of tiny half square triangles and those strips made making them a breeze. I learned something new from your post though, they now come ready made for charm packs, how cool is that?

    So far, I have not tried the triangle papers but have been so tempted! Didn’t realize all the sizes they came in. I have been making them the old way and trimming them to size. I can see where the triangle paper would save a great deal of time and be much more accurate. Will put them on my list for Santa!!

    Yes! I used the papers for the first time last week! Love them. “charm” size looks fun! Just want to say, I love all of your designs! I first saw/heard about your shop at the quilt show in Cleveland several years ago. Fell in love with the wool on flannel “grandmothers garden”. Made it and have been hooked ever since! I have been known to pay admission to the show, go to your booth and then go home! Lol. You are such a talent and a good and lovely person!

I am anxious to do more, and your triangle papers seem that they are a more accurate way. I know accuracy is important in quilting. I would love to try them

  75. December 14, 2016 at 6:29 pm

    I haven’t used these or any papers for HSTs. Would love to give them a try!

    I have tried the strips but I must say that I had a time with them. I guess I just didn’t quite understand them. This was quite a few years ago. If I do try them again I would try the sheets. I just can’t get over how talented you are.

    Love using your papers! And the ones sized for charm paks, they make scrap quilts so much easier! I’ll have to check what sizes I’m low on. Bought lots of sizes when you had them in your Christmas sale before.

    Wow, your collection of red and white quilts is amazing. Just love them. I have used your papers in a kit I bought over the summer from your wonderful husband. Then I bought some more for some of these small stars you are doing. I am not used to using them, so they are new to me, and don’t love taking papers off, but for the accuracy of them, I will do it. I enjoy your patterns and kits, and seeing all your wonderful quilts. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    I have used them and a couple of different brands. Recently used yours (ordered from your online site) for the mini tree of life. I had never starched before either but what a difference that makes. Love the accuracy from using the papers and searching. I would use yours again in a heartbeat. They are great!

    I have used triangle papers to make the quilt Tree 🌲 Farm. They really are a great way to make HST. I’ve been busy making a tree skirt for my oldest Granddaughter. I got a late start as I made 27 stockings with embroidered names for my daughters second grade class. We do this every year and in the past her mother in law helped, but she passed away this fall. Most of my decorating is done except for my kitchen tree, lighting issues! This tree has all the ornaments that play music or have some movement. My six year old granddaughter loves it. I have 8 of your Christmas quilt blocks done and am hoping to do the rest after Christmas. I love red and think it will be a wonderful quilt when done. Thank you for the patterns and the great fabrics.

    I have not used the triangle papers, but I need to learn how to use them. Every time I have to work with small half square triangles, I don’t like how they turn out. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and I’ve given up on several projects just because the triangles didn’t look right. And used a few choice words in the process!!!

    Yes, I have used a couple different brands of triangle papers, on wife them being Primitive Gatherings. I used yours to make Summer Love. Your trial Glenn papers made the project quick, easy and accurate. Thank you for all you do for your woolie customers!

    I have used the triangles once and I loved them. I don’t think I could have made the very, very small finished triangle squares any other way. One question…unrelated…what do you have on the top of your spray starch?

  99. 103 Sarah Dostal
    December 14, 2016 at 6:53 pm

    I have used your triangle papers with a “Song Bird” Frivol that I purchased. It made sewing my HST easy!

    December 14, 2016 at 6:53 pm

    I have used triangle paper before, but I like Lisa’s better because the seam allowance is thinner on the small ones. This means less bulk when working with small blocks. I had never used the starch until this summer when I did the summer block of the week among friends. This quilt would have been a nightmare without them. Thanks Lisa!

  101. 106 Kathy Decker
    December 14, 2016 at 6:56 pm

    I haven’t used them yet, but will use them when I finish the summer freebie. I’m going to try starching then, too.

    Your blocks do look great! Yes I have used triangle paper before but I don’t always get a great HST. I’m going to try and starch mine. Maybe that is what I’m missing.

    I stopped in the store yesterday to purchase a pack of triangle papers to help me finish the last three blocks. Headed to sewing room now. I will certainly need more papers for Setting 3!

    I used other triangle papers with success. Then I found your papers. They are a definite step up. So many sizes of triangles! Even better you designed the papers to work with the pieces of fabric we use. You are a quilting genius.

    I’m a new quilter and would love to try the triangle papers but I thought they were a little intimidating but your post really helped! I think I will give them a try! I like my triangles to be accurate the first time! Thanks for the enlightening post!

    December 14, 2016 at 7:01 pm

    I only have one size of triangle paper and used it on one of the Magic of Christmas blocks. But I had to trim them down to the correct size. Wasted time, I know. I guess I need to get some different sizes of triangle paper. It is great at making my projects more accurate. (What type of gadget do you have on the starch can that is pictured? Looks like it might be a must have too.)

    These papers are the best thing yet to do half square triangles. Especially with Lisa’s blocks of the weeks this past summer.
    They are neat they are precise and practical. Quilting is a hobby to be enjoyed (quit torchering yourself) use all the tools you can get a make your life easier.

  122. 128 Mary C.
    December 14, 2016 at 7:15 pm

    I love your triangle paper…it’s the only way to go! I agree with you, making your HST bigger and then trimming them to the correct size seems like a huge waste of time to me…just make them the right size to begin with! And having them sized for charm packs is fantastic.

    I used triangle papers once but had to make too many of the same fabrics for my purposes. I love the idea of cutting strips and making only the number of each that you want or need. I also love that you have so many sizes available. Happy holidays to everyone !

    I purchased the triangle papers but have not used them yet. I will need to purchase a few additional sizes to make my blocks. I was so thankful you sent out the email today with the explanation of what size triangle paper to use to make which size triangle. I was planning on starting my quilt after the 1st of the year since I had so many other projects to finish first. Love the fabric Lisa and your blog thank you for all your hard work putting this together!

    I have been using the rolls of HST’s, but the triangles look really flat and nice. I am excited to use them–and on sale!! I had to use the rolls of HST’s on the fabulous MOC blocks. Only have a few left to make!! I love them and making HST’s made them so much easier. Great instructions!

    I just love the fact that you give such understandable & easy to follow instructions on how to do things!!!! Makes me want to get one of my UFO’s out & finish it!!!! Then try making a little quilt. Yours always look so perfect!!! Thanks

    Using triangle papers makes HST fast, easy and most of all perfect….it’s one thing I can say “I did that” and not have to admit I had help. hehe. My little secret! BTW: I love all of your red and white quilts! Beautiful.

    December 14, 2016 at 8:37 pm

    I have used the triangle papers when they were sent with a block of the month from Primitive Gatherings. They are wonderful! I have used others and was not happy with them. I appreciate the time you take for all of us. Thanks and Merry Christmas!

    I have used your triangle papers on several of your Summer Block of the Week quilts. I really like using them … but have a quick question. I have always heard not to use my good sewing scissors for paper cutting. Are the triangle papers hard on the blade of my rotary cutter … or on the needle of my sewing machine? Thanks for your insight!

  199. 207 Deborah Thomas
    December 14, 2016 at 8:49 pm

    Yes I have used the triangles. They’re perfect. The last time I bought them was for your kit, Sue’s Stars. Great tutorial you posted.

    December 14, 2016 at 8:50 pm

    These were a lifesaver this summer for Among Friends and the summer freebie. Make finished 1/2″ half square triangles would have turned my hair grayer than it already is. Great product.

  201. December 14, 2016 at 8:52 pm

    I have used the 1/2 inch triangle papers and I get so many compliments on how accurate they are for the size. Mind you they are not perfect as that was a first for me to work that small, but they did look pretty darn good.

  202. 210 Laurie Sylvester

    I’ve just started to make smaller projects and I have had problems with accuracy and you use a lot of HST in your designs so I thought you had it down pat. Therefore I’ve just received my first order of your variety pak and I have spray starch on hand and anxious to start making perfect projects. Thank you!

    Hi Lisa- I have never used triangle papers. I even took a class from Lyn Masten (a California quilter) in which she used some – and I was thrilled at how well they worked…but did I form the habit? Did I remember her lesson? DID I LISTEN????? I’m ashamed of myself, because I know there has to be a better way, and this HAS to be it! I’m making a promise to re-read your newsletter and make myself use these until it becomes automatic….thanks for your patience with me…I am so grateful for your lessons. Merry Christmas!

    I have not used your triangles papers but I will now that you just posted that conversion chart! That is wonderful because so many patterns want you to cut those small increments, it’s crazy when by just using your HST paper, it looks like it will be a breeze! Thanks!

      I just bought the half square triangle paper to make the tiny half inch blocks for your red and white 25 quilt blocks and have never used them before. I’m very excited to try them! If I can conquer half inch half square triangles, there’s no stopping me! Thank you for the great instructional post.

    I have not used them yet but your post offered very helpful information and instructions for a newby triangle paper user.

I admire all of those red and white quilts shown in the cupboard photo… I aspire to have a similar stack someday!

    I’ve used triangle papers in the past by other manufacturers ( The on the roll kind) and I had decent results but then I tried yours and I absolutely love them much more accurate and easy to use and available in the teeny tiny sizes now I only use yours. Thank you for the 12 days of Christmas things that you offer and I know I’ll be making some purchases those mini clips you featured yesterday are on my list along with a few more sizes of the HST papers

    Wow! I have never seen or even heard of these triangle papers…. I must say your photos and explanation of them was very good indeed. I do a lot of hand stitching and to be honest I would love to work more with my sewing machine. I think it’s because triangles intimidate me! Ha ha I think I am in a little shock after reading this post as stitching triangles on a sewing machine looks so simple now! Rather, you make it look really simple! I would love to give this a go! I love your posts, great inspiration to try, thank you 🙂

I’ve always done the Magic 8 method for HST, but really like the charm pack papers! And for a quilt with a quadrillion (is that a word?), those big sheets would be awesome!! I’ve used the triangles on a roll before, but your sheets look like they’d be a bit easier to manage.

    I love your triangle paper, and I do use it. But have a question, I am working on the MOC quilt, do we use the paper for all the block pieces, or just the parts you have said to use the paper on? Thank you so much for all your hard work, I love all your designs and use your shop all the time. Merry Christmas!

    Love triangle papers!

    You can never have too much of a good thing and that is especially true with triangle papers. I have just about every size imaginable, (however the 2 1/2″ size is getting low) sorted into ziplock bags and hanging on a hook for easy access.

    I haven’t used the triangle papers. I have the MOC all printed out and waiting as a New Year project. The papers would be very useful and make the project more accurate. The red and white are stunning. Merry Christmas.

    Merry Christmas:) I was a thangle user for a long time. Then this summer I did Among Friends summer block of the week. This was my first time using your papers……and I LOVE THEM!!!! They are super user-friendly and I love the smaller seam allowance. Plus 100% accuracy with every seam is awesome! As always, thanks for sharing your time and amazing talents:) …….from a warm and sunny Florida!

    I may be too late for the giveaway, but still wanted to comment. I have not tried your Triangle Papers yet, although I did buy a bunch of the charm sizes last year, and possible a few of the larger ones as well. I’ve been in the process of moving my entire sewing room and attempting to organize all my fabric around since I’d become buried in my sewing room after my son and his family moved in a few years back, but moved out so I can have my storage room back again. I am now in the camp of “YES, you CAN have too much fabric” LOL

    Anyway, I did want to comment to thank you for the awesome quick tutorial on how to use your Triangle Papers. I’m also very happy to read you now have the full size sheets as I’d love to try them so I’ll cross my fingers you haven’t chosen a winner yet. (I still don’t know why so many of my emails come after midnight, but that’s the case with this one sadly, so as I said, I may be too late for this giveaway but I still wanted to say thank you for the tutorial on how to use these)

    I have never used triangle papers–was resistant to the idea & didn’t understand at all how to use them. But my little blocks are almost always wonky looking! I just read Lisa’s instructions & can totally see how helpful they can be! Wow! I’m going to order some & give them a try. Thanks Lisa!

  295. 305 Diane Rose

    I love triangle paper pieces. I have used them for a long time. I do a lot of hand applique, but for any hst borders the triangle papers work great. Happy Holidays to you and yours. Thanks for the giveaways.

    Memaw quilter, about fourteen years ago I used a roll of printed triangle paper. I did not like the funny shaped triangles plus the paper was hard to rip off. I am anxious to try your new papers. They should be fantastic to use making grand babies quilts. Have a great Holiday . Martha

    Baby it’s cold outside here too in Ont. Canada. Perfect time for stitching. Would love to try your triangles, I have used others and they’d were slick for larger triangles but I believe your would be the ones to use for small HST,s
    Love your decorating. I’m in a new house this year too it’s fun to start fresh and change things up. Your red and white quilts are the best.

    Great tutorial on how to use the triangle papers. I picked up several tips as I read through.

    One year during a shop hop in the UP of MI, I saw at one of the quilt shops they had the papers and you could join a friendship HST exchange. You made so many using a light and dark batik and then kept some and exchanged some. It really intrigued me, but at that time I wasn’t ready to get involved in the exchange. I would love to try using papers to make more perfect blocks. It would be great to have the exchange idea active again.

    December 15, 2016 at 7:53 am

    I have never used triangle papers, but it’s something I am strongly considering. I’ve struggled with perfect points and HSTs for a long time!

  304. 314 Teresa
    December 15, 2016 at 7:58 am

    Yes, I have used Thangles in the past, but I seem to forget about them and also have trouble figuring out which size to use. I know, that’s probably a mental block thing. The ‘finished’ and ‘unfinished’ confuses me.

    I have not, but intend to when I get to start on my Red and White Christmas quilt ! Been to busy finishing up my shopping and now have started baking and finishing the christmas gifts I’ve made for my sisters and daughter ! Look forward to using them in the quilt ,yes, I’ll post pictures as I’m working on it after the Christmas season 🙂

  309. December 15, 2016 at 8:22 am

    I have never used these…didn’t know there was such a thing until Lisa’s Christmas blocks! If they work half as well as everyone says they will be a great addition to my quilting tool box!

    I’ve used various triangle papers for years…first Triangles on a Roll and then Thangles. Started using Primitive Gatherings triangle papers a couple years ago, and they are absolutely THE best. Used the tiny 1/2 inch papers for the first time when finishing up the summer freebie. I was doubtful about how these teensy hst would work. No problem….they are the cutest things ever. Used Lisa’s papers in about every block of the MOC.

  311. 321 Nancy Zimmerman

    I have not used many triangle papers, but am anxious to try yours. I am still working on my Magic of Christmas blocks. It will be done definitely for Christmas 2017!

    I love, love, love your triangle papers! It’s the only way to make HST and I always know they will be perfect! Thank you for helping to make accuracy in small blocks so easy!

    Yes, I have certainly used the triangle papers and would not be without them. So accurate and I have to say yours do come off easily which is so important especially on tiny pieces. I noticed the foot on your Juki…is that a special guide piece on the edge and does this foot come with the machine. Looks great!

  318. 328 Susan Puente
    December 15, 2016 at 9:08 am

    Show them and they will use them !! Ordering me some of these…I would like to know what that thingy is on your starch can!!!! I break my tip off way to often. That looks like something I need also..

  319. 329 Sharon Brewer

    I love these variety packages of triangle papers and how they fit perfectly with charm packs, etc!! I want them all! 😉

    • December 15, 2016 at 9:50 am

      I recently bought some of your triangle papers while visiting the Quilting Nook in Osseo, WI. I’ve never used them and was happy to see this post on just how to do it. I certainly would love to win some, but if not I’ve already won by having your beautiful tutorial.
      thanks

  322. December 15, 2016 at 9:41 am

    I love using triangle papers. Your demo/explanation makes using them so much easier! Thank you. BTW, advent calendars count down the same way as you.

  323. 334 Bridget Reimets
    December 15, 2016 at 9:47 am

    I’ve used Thangles years ago as a BOM. Still have some but never think to use them. I guess I need a chart or something to help me know which size to use. They do work great.

  324. 335 Terri
    December 15, 2016 at 9:48 am

    I have used triangle papers before, and am currently using them for a HST border. I’ve never tried the charm pack papers, but will be looking for them.

  325. December 15, 2016 at 10:38 am

    Whoa–I don’t think I’ve ever set my Juki on 1 for the stitch length–I’m sure it helps perforate the paper a lot! I notice you have a foot on your machine that I didn’t get with mine. I am almost losing my mind trying to maintain an accurate quarter inch seam on the Juki, so I am very curious to know what foot you are using!!

    Amen Sister! I am old and have been quilting for 24 years. I am grateful that somewhere way back there someone introduced me to triangle paper. I am constantly converting regular patterns asking me to cut enormous amounts of squares in half and sewing them back together — NOT. I teach beginning quilting at my local quilt shop and the students always get a demo on how to use triangle paper. I have some of the charm size papers, but am anxious to try the ones you so cleverly designed to be used with strips! Genius!

  327. 338 Angela Bowling

    This looks like something that would be mighty handy to use. I would like to try them.

    bonjour,
    j’habite dans le sud de la France, je fais du patchwork depuis environ 20 ans, je suis abonnée à votre blog depuis quelques temps.Je ne connais pas le papier triangle , mais en lisant vos commentaires je m’aperçois que cela facile bien le travail pour faire des triangles.
    Pouvez-vous m’indique si je peux trouver ces papiers triangles en France.
    Merci d’avance

    I have not used the triangle paper, but if this makes my quilting easier and more accurate, I am all for it. I make small wall hangings and these papers would be perfect. Also appreciate the tip about starching the fabric. Thank you.

    December 15, 2016 at 12:20 pm

    Wow, Lisa, Thanks for all the info regarding the HST papers. I am sure I have been told this before, but then where did I put it… ? This time I saved the info and no, I have not used them yet. I certainly should be and I have the quilt kit (Words to Live By) to use them in (yes I’m still working on it).

  332. 343 Mary Smith

    What a lifesaver! Boy could I use these to make sewing these 6″ blocks easier.

    December 15, 2016 at 4:38 pm

    I haven’t used triangle papers in such a long time…I bought three charm packs recently and am thinking they’re going to be part of a half triangle quilt.

    December 15, 2016 at 7:54 pm

    I haven’t used triangle paper, but it looks like a great way to make small blocks. I want to try a mini quilt this year ant this looks like way to get inspired to start.

    I have not used these papers because I was afraid to try them, but your instructions are great so I use them to do my Christmas quilt(in Jan) that I ordered from you. Thanks for the instructions from your tornado friend in Iowa. Happy Holidays😍

    What is that contraption on your spray starch can?

    I am waiting the arrival of my new Juki. Supposed to be delivered before the end of the day. Hoping the weather doesn’t stop the UPS man.
