    Take a look at this link and if it helps http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-LQfYXrG_Q :?
    is the top and the bottom not matching up? or is it not matching the body? I have one of the pattern but is is of the ladybug. I could not understand what you are having a problem. Are you able to take a pictrue so we can see what the problem might be? :oops:

    Thanks for the video tip, I just happened to watch that one this morning! LOL I wanted as many tips as possible. Well, I stopped working on the quilt it is now 11:30pm and I haven't even completed one side of the butterfly yet!! Actually alot of the pieces don't match up, I even tried to flip them then pin them, no prevail. So, I'lll do what I can, I don't think I will be giving this away as a gift, it's awful! I'll take a pic, and I will say now how embarrased I am at how this worked outthus far! :oops:

    Queenbee,

    I just finished making some totes and hats from pattern and was astonished how many times I had to turn the fabric, or pattern or interfacing in another direction before cutting. (ask me how I found out!)

    Make sure you follow the directions for layout carefully and everything should fit as intended. If not, use my method----make it fit!

    Good luck and have fun with it.

    I have made 2 of thee and the clown fish I love them they are super easy to put together I did hang the directions over my machine and that helped me a lot. Usually walking away helps me to figure it out I am sure you will just be sure you are using the right one left one left and right on right. Don't think I am saying this right but I know I did this on my first one.

    I just finished doing the panda bear. First take a deep breath and then sit down and lay out the pattern as if it is your material. Look how the pieces sit next to each other. Then take your pieces and lay over the pattern. Remember you are bringing the back sides together to piece and maybe that is causing the confusion. Good luck.

    I have that very same pattern and I have made a cat from another of their rag quilt patterns. If you still can't figure it out, PM me and maybe we can do it together. Good luck.

    QweenBee - we are about 45 minutes apart. Want to meet mid-way somewhere, maybe at a quilt shop and lets try to figure it out? I'm in Ann Arbor.
