Thangles for a table

At least a year ago our LQS had a competition or something using Thangles and pre-cut strips. Each made 28 HST that would finish at 2". I didn't want to get into the contest or whatever it was, but liked the Thangles (supplied) and the batiks, so bought a bunch of them. Yikes, what a thing to do!

But they are cut, sewn, designed into a medallion looking table topper which will be about 37" x 42" and now that it is this far, I'm kinda glad for persistence. I will look okay.

This is after they are sewn into vertical strips. A few on the left are sewn together. 

This is just the squares precariously stuck to my design wall. I was so scared of brushing against them and knocking them off to the floor that I pinned each row so they would not be out of place no matter what happened on their way to the sewing machine! A narrow border might be nice, but finding the material (any of the umteen batiks) could be a challenge.

Triangles are so much fun to play with.

I like triangles, but have never used Thangles. Our LQS ran a whole series of Thangle events before they finally had to close.
