Here are a couple of quick videos on how to use Primitive Gatherings Triangle Papers…
Sewing the starched two fabrics right sides together…paper on top of the light…shorten stitch length to half of what you normally stitch at..I go to 1 on my Juki….Stitch all the dashed lines…
Trim on all the solid lines….make sure you have a nice small ruler…
Flip them to all the dark triangles are facing up…press them using lots of steam….
I cannot get the last video to load…will try again or make another post…
but the last post is removing the paper…hold it near the stitching with your non dominant hand…push the paper triangle back with your dominant hand and pull it away from down near the stitching in the center of the paper triangle…
sorry but I really tried to get this all in one spot…I will keep trying tomorrow! Lisa

The seam allowance looks much smaller than the usual 1/4″. Is it 1/8″?

Thank you for the wonderful block! The best part of doing a Blockhead is learning new techniques and finding fellow quilters to follow! Am trying papers for the first time, also.
Thank you for the block and for the layout idea!

Thanks for the videos. I have some Thangles but have not tried them. You give me the courage to try.
Thank you for the great block! It is always fun doing Moda Blockheads as all of the designers create some wonderful blocks for us and give us an opportunity to check out new techniques. Your videos were very easy to follow and the papers look to be a great lifesaver for these little guys. Now to get to work!
Love anything to help make triangles easier! Thanks for the tip.
Love the block. Think I will go for the 6” one. Love the Blockheads! Thanks to the designers for all y’all do!
Thank you for the beautiful block, and the very helpful videos and block layout. This has been a wonderful challenge, and I am so thankful that I decided to jump in the Moda Blockheads 3.
Mini charm packs are the cutest!
Could you demo how you press the squares open – your hand covered the triangle & I couldn’t tell how you sooo easily got the squares to open with the iron? I struggle with getting those pesky papers to open without putting a crease in them – or burning my finger tips! Thanks!
Love your blog. Thank you for the block! Thank you for the layout option.
I love your no-nonsense tutorials! And I want to add you are lickity-split sewing one handed, and whipping thru cutting those cuties! Thank you for a beautiful block – I can’t wait to get started!
I’m headed to our lqs to rent the longarm to finish some quilts. I will then be headed for the couch in front of the fire to handstitch my binding! Perfect way to spend the weekend on a cold, probably snowy day! Thank you for the fabulous block. I enjoyed making it.
