is ther a section that tell wof would mean width of fabric what some terms mean? I was wondering about thangles and or tringulations, can some one please tell me what they are and how they work.

I also see allot of the thing are cut in half or in an x style to make 4 tringles , if werer going to be sewing these back together why cant we put right sides together & stitch from corner to corner going in the 1/2 seam  so it would end up being 1/4 on each.

Is ths method usable when it state that ti must be place in a particular position and onely this position ?

Thanks for all the help:)

Mary Beth ,there are many different ways to cut HST ,You should just use the one that works best for you . 

Triangulations is a soft ware product you can download on your computer  it makes many different sizes of HST, that you then paper piece  It 's really nice when you have to make a lot of HST, if its just a few I find it easier to just make them without the software.

There is a spot in your home page that you can click on that will take you to a dictionary like page that  will tell you all the abbreviations and what they mean. 

Thangles are pre printed paper you can place on your quilt top that has printed disgns on for quilting . Have never used them so can't give you a review on those. 

 Hope this helps you out . Barbara

Thangles are pre-printed papers used to make HST from fabric strips. They come in varying sizes, so that you can make different size HST. The paper strips are about six inches long and make 4-6 HST, depending on the finished size; more with smaller HST, less with larger ones. They let you sew several HST at once, rather than making individual squares and marking them.

Many quilt shops sell them. I have used them for many projects. You can strip piece with them, by pinning and sewing several at once. Here is a link to my blog that shows what the thangle looks like in a project that I made last year.
