|Block and Set:
a new product from THANGLES
Block and Set is a new modular way to do quilt projects. It
consists of interchangeable block patterns and settings. There are 12
individual block patterns printed in full color on 3" x 4" cards in a
series. There are also settings that use these block patterns. The
Block Cards and Settings are very inexpensive: only $3.99 retail
for a set of 12 Block Cards and $3.99 retail for each Setting.
You purchase your THANGLES separately.
You can use Block and Set in many ways. If you like a particular
project shown on a setting pattern you purchase that setting pattern
and the block series used for that setting. Set #5 the Half Star Twin
Setting is shown to the right. This quilt as shown uses all of the
Series #3 Block Card patterns.
To make this quilt exactly as shown, you purchase the Series #3
cards, Setting #5 and a pack of 2" THANGLES. Please note, both
the Series #3 cards and Setting #5 uses 2" THANGLES. One pack
is enough to do the entire project.
You might want to use this setting with a different set of block
patterns. If you like the Series #2 Star patterns you could use those
block patterns in place of the Series #3 patterns.
Maybe you just want to make blocks. You can start with a pack of
Block Cards and make blocks.
We have five sets of Block Cards.
All of these series are 12" finished blocks. Series 4 and 5 have
center blocks that finish 6"
Series #1 Block Cards are made with 2 different fabric strips
that are 4.5" wide and 4" THANGLES. These blocks are very
fast. All the blocks in this series are used in Setting #1, which is a
twin set. You do not need to use all of the block patterns in a quilt.
In Setting #2 a second twin sized setting using 24 blocks, we only
used two of the block patterns from Series #1 Block Cards.
Series #2 Block Cards are made with 3 different fabric strips
that are 3.5" wide and 3" THANGLES. All the patterns in this set
are star blocks. You will see some of these blocks used in Settings

Series #3 Block Cards are made with 4 different fabric strips
that are 2.5" wide and 2" THANGLES. All of the patterns in this
set are also star blocks. You will see all of the blocks used in Setting

half star border. One pack is enough to do the blocks AND the
Series #4 Block Cards have center blocks that are made
with 2 strips that are 2.5" wide and you get two 6" finished
blocks from these strips, a positive and negative. The
center block uses 2" THANGLES. The blocks become the
center of a star by using 3.5" strips and 3" THANGLES on the
outside of the blocks.
