    has anyone done this one yet? I just got the pattern and it sucks in directions. some numbers were hand written in and the sheet photo copied. some sentences i don't understand at all. shoot. i really wanted to make this but am thinking of sending it back already. anyone?
    I'm sure i can wing it but I shouldn't have to.

    No, you shouldn't have to. I haven't seen the pattern but I'm going to go look it up. We might want to avoid the designer if that is the way the pattern is written...

    I just emailed Connecting Threads to see what they say. I do so hate bad directions!
    one sentence says "sew the strips together into two indential strip sets(four strip sets if using fat qtrs). sew the strips in numerical order from 1 to 10 in sets of two per point 6 below."
    i will have to study this one before attempting it and then most likely go by the picture. i printed off a larger one off their site.

    well perhaps if i study it , it will make more sense. i was just hoping someone else here had already tackled it.
    with studying the directions and the larger picture i printed out, i should make it.
    i ordered thread and the pattern and got both quickly. i noticed when i just clicked on the pattern, it was always on back order , but i didn't want the kit.

    Bascially means you have 10 different fabrics sstrips sized 2 1/2 sewn in order from 1-10 giving you 6 sets 10 fabric strips sewn together. Next step is probably cutting them in different sizes.

    I ordered that pattern and just received a shipping notice. Once I receive it, maybe we can try to do it together.

    I have a bargello book that has one really easy to follow pattern in it. It is "Beautiful Bargello". The pattern that was the best explained is "Barjelly Table Covering". I have made it up ( just a placemat size) to see if I could follow the instructions.

    As soon as I get the kit, I'll PM you & maybe we can figure it out.............I really want to make this, it is so pretty!

    Here is the pattern designer's web page! and she has a blog.

    No reason she can't clarify the instructions.

    I have just ordered the same pattern, it is on back order. Hope I have no problem with it. There is a place on there that u can email them if you run into any problems with a pattern, I would do some research on checking this out. Hope you can get it completed. I am so excited on getting it, but now I'm wondering if I should cancel my order. I am terrible with directions, I am a visual peson. Good luck with your pattern. Barb

    hey, thanks for her site. i printed out Walk About and love Moon Shadows too!!
    no, don't cancel your order. it was just written on and worded odd. i'm sure we can all make the quilt just fine, after reading the pattern a bit.
    thanks fellow quilters!

    no, no. don't "not" order it. look on her site. she does lots of quilt as you go bargello. i must read the pattern a few times and then i'm sure everything will click.

    I was going to order this pattern too. Maybe I'll wait to see how you make out with contacting Connecting Threads. I have been very pleased with all of my dealings with this company. I'm sure that if you contact them they will make it all right for you.

    I just received my pattern and fabric today. Read the pattern and I have the answer to one of your questions. In step 5 the phrase "per point 6 below," should have parenthesis around it. Should say sew the strips in numerical order from 1 to 10 in sets of two (per point #6 below.) Yes, it was confusing.

    Now, I need help. Step 11 says "Sew each set into a tube" ---What does that mean? How do you sew strips into a tube?

    I don't have this pattern, but it may mean you take those strips and sew the two ends together. Then you separate it between the colors indicated on the pattern.

    I haven't tried making this yet. I am sure with more careful reading, I'll be able to do it. and yes i figured out the point 6 below. odd way of saying it though.
    anybody made this up yet???

    You are sooo right. It was an odd way of saying it. Actually, a lot of the instructions are not crystal clear. Like you, I'd really like to hear from someone who has made it. Anyone out there???

    I was going to order that but then talked myself out of it. I know I won't get to it this year :'(
    Sorry to hear that the directions are duds.
