Are you sure you're not in collusion with the Dark Fairy????

Never mind, I'm sure The Fairy will man up and post the pics, it was stipulated in the rules after all !!!

I'm sure The Fairy always obeys all stipulated rules at all times!!!

Mine is half assembled and I just need to figure out what sort of closure to do so I can make the back :)

I should get it out by Friday so a little before the deadline!

Oh god I have problems :(

I've just finished piecing and my thing looks awful. I followed a tutorial because I don't really know what I'm doing, and two of the colours are just too similar. It looks really odd. It looks sort of wonky  :\

I have no idea what to do. I might have to scrap and start again but I'm aware the deadline is coming soon. Aghhhh.

Well it's done. The border has made it look a tad better but it still jolts the eyes. Also I decided that tonight would be an excellent time to completely learn how to do mitred corners. That was a mistake, so please don't look too closely at my corners  :\

@Francesca - we're all anxious about our work no matter what level we're at (or think we're at ><). It's because we're making for someone else so we want everything to be perfect  <3 - and it's just not possible. I'm sure your cushionee will appreciate the work that's gone into your cover and will forgive a few small beginner "design features". :)

ROFL
THAT'S my point.  Mine aren't beginner design features, it's my natural slapdash approach and inability [and unwillingness] to be painstaking over a cushion.  Oh dear

OMG!! I have just received my cushion cover from @Cheesecake  and it is absolutely gorgeous.........and.....double sided......with a zip!!!!!!!!
I'm awestruck and have now joined the ranks of @DementedFairy  @Francesca  et al, in panicking. My own effort looks so feeble.. and amateurish.. and, I don't even have the excuse that I'm not a quilter..... it's all I do!!!
Thank you so much Cheesecake, it'll have pride of place on the comfy wing backed chair and I'll treasure it  <3 <3
Triumph of hope over experience :D
