Great timing!

Yesterday I posted that I was having trouble with getting the points to line up on my pillow.  I had some great suggestions for 'saving' the one that I already made, and I think instead of entirely ripping it apart I am going to embrace it for what it is and keep it.  But since the intended recipient was my Modern Swappers partner, I just want it to be more perfect so I will attempt it again.

Fortunately, when I went on Flickr this morning I saw that someone else had made a pillow similar and the points matched up!  Also fortunately, she was kind enough to make a tutorial for her pillow that I think might help.  Especially since the suggestions she gave for sewing it together were already mentioned by Kelly in yesterday's comments.  Apparently I need to hear it in stereo for it to sink in!  LOL.

Anyway, I'm hoping to make another one this weekend, so wish me luck!


  1. Hey, I learned the hard way about the right order to put pieces together. I was making a pinwheel block for the first time (for a Bee member no less) and it was terrible! I found out later that if I simply changed the order I assembled the pieces, it came out great. Live and learn!

  2. Funny how simple things can be sometimes and we make it so difficult.

  3. Thanks for sharing the tutorial. I love this pillow! And good luck with the next try, although I am sure your partner would have loved your first attempt too!
