Back at Sewing Summit, I won some 1" Thangles from Amanda over at Hey Porkchop! during her mini quilts class. They sat unused until just about two weeks ago when I finally decided to break them out.
First they were this:
Then they became this:
Totally unintentional, but I love how the design is reflected in the Coke can.
I used all my favorite Art Gallery Pure Elements colors. The current size for this little guy is 15.5" x 16.5" Can I tell you how excited I was when I measured and realized my seams were right on?! I'm unsure how I want to finish this up. It could be part of a quilt, a pillow, a wall quilt. I've even thought about framing it. I pretty much love it. My arrangement was totally inspired by this fabulous quilt from Sew Katie Did.
I'm not sure I'd use Thangles for bigger HSTs, but they definitely made life a bit easier when making these tiny little guys.
Thanks Amanda for the pack of Thangles! I had a lot of fun trying them out.
