Aligning Thangles is really not difficult but teadious. I was making more half square triangles using Thangles paper templates and had over 50 strips to align and pin together. So I taped a small 6x8 inch cutting mat to my table and butted the edge of the fabric and paper together along the edge of the mat. Everything aligned perfectly and made the process go quickly... now I am off and sewing.

Thanks for the great tip! I use thangles and they do a great job, but oh so tedious! This sounds like it will make it go easier.
