    Wow, that is cool. Is it easy or hard? Did you find the how to pattern online, I need to do a search and see if I can find the pattern online.

    Thanks

    That's awesome! It doesn't look easy.

    Perhaps you'd consider posting a tutorial on it?

    It is really easy once you get the steps down. I could post a tutorial later. I got the pattern from my friend.

    Wow that is colorful.
    Maybe I can do this size as the Christmas ornament balls were a bit intimidating.
    Instructions?

    I remember these being around in the 70's and we put them in embroidery hops. Does anyone else rember making these or am I just showing my age??

    I also love your colors; they are kind of retro!

    The first thing that popped into my head was that would be a great pillow to make in different university colors.. bet it would sell very well and then my mind went to how it could be coordinated to make your sofas.. etc. It looks pretty time consumming however. You say once you get it its simple but could you possibly say how long each block took? And I would love to see a tutorial on this its striking.

    I would love a tute for the pillow. I found the ornament instructions online. Could you tell me more specifically about hand sewing the points down. Like should it be invisible. Is it just a tacking or backstitching. Do you need to tie off between points. Ahh--show me--PLEASE

    Wow that is beautifal. I haven't seen one in years. It doesn't look easy. I guess I'll see the tutorial and give it a shot.
    Thanks for sharing :thumbup:

    Oh my goodness, your pillow is lovely! I've got a couple of unfinished small round ones that were supposed to be hot pads...they're nearing vintage...started in the early eighties! I highly recommend these for pressing practice...hahaha...will seriously improve accuracy! And the sand board I made for marking is still in use today...well, it's in my travel bag...not really in use...perhaps I'll dig those out and see about finishing them... geez, inspiration comes from all sides on this board, doesn't it? Thanks for sharing!
