The Waterfall Pillow pattern is posted to my Etsy shop which means that my first foray into pattern writing is officially out in the world!! My nervousness dissipated over the last few days and was replaced with eagerness to just get it out there already. Much like the anticipation before a big test, the worrying about an error I had overlooked was starting to get the best of me. Last night I reread the pattern for the 100th time and decided if I hadn’t caught a mistake by now, I probably never would. Plus I always love finding mistakes in published things (especially textbooks!) so maybe it’s only fair that I give someone else the opportunity to find an error in my pattern. Needless to say, I’m glad release day is finally here!
So if you’re looking for a fun and relatively quick project, I hope you’ll give my pillow cover a try! There aren’t any matching seams and the placement of the “waterfall” fabric is all improv, so you really don’t have to worry about getting things just so, which is often a concern with quilting. This is sewing and quilting for the joy of it, and when you’re done, you have a pillow to show for it!
My testers did a great job helping me hone the directions, but I’m always happy to answer your questions if you get stuck or find a particular step confusing. If there’s a question I get several times, I’ll update this post and include info to help! And if there are any pattern corrections (eek!) I’ll list them here. I can’t wait to see what everyone makes!
