Crayons and triangles = Crangles???

Have you ever made 2 quilts at once? I don't mean have several WIPs (Work in Progress) I mean sew 2 at the same time? That's exactly what I am doing. Here's how...

You know when you use a thread saver, startee/stoppee, sew on/sew off or whatever you call it (the little piece of fabric you sew onto before you remove the fabric from your machine)? Well I decided that instead of using that little piece of fabric over and over that I would use that thread and time to work on a different quilt. So instead of those little pieces of fabric I am sewing another triangle onto my 'Crangle' quilt. (this is a great way to work on a tumbler, triangle or scrap vomit quilt too). I am using 2.5" triangles, 2816 to be exact. And that's where I need your help.

I would like to do this quilt totally in fabric by Me and My Sister Designs. I have always loved their bright fabric. I have a bunch and will be buying a bunch of Amelia, but I want more diversity. As you can probably guess 2816 triangles is a ton. So if you have any scraps that you would like to share please let me know. Any size pieces over 3" square will work. Just leave me a comment or find me on twitter and I'll send you my info.

  1. Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville ( calls those little pieces of fabric you sew onto before you remove the fabric from your machine "leaders and enders" and has books written with many patterns for them.
