Lovely! What wonderful fabrics. From what I've heard, it isn't you, it's the pattern. Doesn't sound like they did a good job of pattern testing and editing this book.
Love it two will be wonderful together. And ditto Audrey... It is not you! Did you see Wendy's tips from when she made it?
Thanks, Audrey and Mary. I did see the tips from Wendy. I can't tell you how many times I went back to TB to read them again and compare them with the diagram in the e-book. It did look deceptively simple, and it should have been.
It's done and I've trimmed it up and finished it. Will add that photo tomorrow.
Great fabrics- sorry you had an encounter with the dragon instructions as well- but it looks great:)
Well, you may have stumbled a bit with that wonky pattern, but the result is great! Good plan to just trim it square and be done. Just goes to show you that the "simplest" patterns can be bears sometime (and it sure would have helped it the cutting directions had been right!). I found the Gumdrop to be easier, and here I thought that would have been the hard one!
i think it looks great. love your fabrics
Caribousmom , thank you! I too think the Gumdrop was the easier of the two and was totally taken by surprise to be so mixed up with the Metro, even using the corrected sizes you gave out. It does teach us not to make assumptions based on the picture, yes!
Sewbusy64 , thank you. I was lucky to be given these lovely fabrics just in time for these pillows.
Carolmarie , thank you. You will be happy to know the gumdrop was so easy to do! Don't worry about it at all. You'll do it just fine; I would reverse the "easy" and
"challenge" labels for this month after having done both. I can't wait to see what colors you use for yours.
So ambitious, doing both of the cushions!! The fabrics really look good in this pattern!
Joke , thank you. My daughter will be receiving in the next few days. They went into the mail today. I expect she will be pleased to put her pillows in them and have them out on her sofa.
Quilterinmotion maybe its just me but I think trying to use the e-book is kind of tricky anyway. I kept going back to it over and over looking at it. Of course I'm crazy so its probably just me. You pillow is lovely.
Skynme , I did the same thing - went back over and over but I now have it on my new Tablet so at least I can see it in color now. I don't think I'll order another quilting e-book; much prefer the paper variety for quilting books. Thank you.
