Oh I have been wanting to try a mattress style finish, thank you so much Vonna for your wonderful tutorial!!! You are such a sweetie to share your knowledge :)
Great tutorial, I love these but had no idea how they were made. I can definately see one in my future now :) Thanks for taking the time to write and photograph everything!
Thank you Vonna! I've been wanting to try one of those.
Another GREAT tutorial, Vonna! I love how these pincushions look and I'm going to have to give one a try.You're wonderful to include such detailed instructions and pics!!!
Thanks for the tutorial. That's really sweet of you to do stuff like that ;)
You do such beautiful work, Vonna :) GREAT tutorial!Thank you for friendship and ear :)((hugs))
What a wonderful tutorial. I believe I can do a cushion. Thank you for sharing!
Thanks so much Vonna - I've been wanting to make one but was intimidated by the finishing. Your photos make it much more approachable. Patti
Great finish ! Your tutorial looks so easy to follow, I'm going to have to give it a try.
Dearest Vonna,I've read a couple of mattress pincushions tutorial out there but yours is by far the clearest and you make it look so darn easy.It's got a 'get off your butt and make one' effect! And I am sure feeling it :DThanks so very much.
Way to go! Love your LHN finish! Thanks to taking on SBEBB! You are the greatest, I blog Carol too, if you need help, just let me know! I'll do what I can!Donna
Terrific! It's nice to be working on something (like the flat fold yesterday) and have your tutorial up so I can follow along. Keep up the good work!
What a fabulous tutorial! Simply the best I have seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great new tutorial Vonna! Thank you!
I'm going to have to try to make one of these in 2008!
Thank you for the tutorial Vonna! It's great :) You've received a beautiful exchange and sent wonderful squares. Wow, you had a busy day! I hope your days will be less busy from now on and you'll have time to stitch :)
Lovely pincushion and great tutorial!
That looks so easy!! But, two questions for the novice finisher:1) What is fusible interfacing and what is it for? (OK, that's 2 q's)2) About how long do you think this would take a beginner to do from start to finish?Thanks for the help!!
You do such a great job with tutorials, Vonna!
Thank you for the new tutorial Vonna:) I've been wanting to try one of these but daren't!
Vonna, I just love your tutorials! This one is a very nice way to finish a design. Thanks so much for putting the tutorials together!
great tutorial!, and nice matress, love it!groetjes jacqueline (crazyexchangeboard)
Vonna,Thanks so much for this tutorial. It's so clear. Your efforts are really appreciated :>)Angela
Thanks Vonna! This is one finishing style that I haven't tried yet, so a tutorial will be helpful. :)
Thanks for doing this Vonna. I have always wanted to try one of this style and I may just do that one day. Your finished mattress pinkeep is so pretty!
Your tutorials are always so great Vonna! I refer people to them all the time
Thank you so much for the wonderful tutorial, Vonna! You make it look so easy!
Thank you so much, this will be so useful.
Wandered over from LiveJOurnal ... Do you happen to know if there's a feed from your blog to there. I love your tutorials -- and you do gorgeous work!
Wow thank you for doing this tutorial! Hopefully this year I will learn new finishes for things as that is my New Year's resolution. These will certainly help me to do that!! You do such beautiful work and I love it!! Debby :)
Great tutorial Vonna! Thanks!!
Great tutorail - really easy to follow.
What beautiful photos you take--and the pinkeep is wonderful also. And I got the A Mon Ami Pierre in the newsletter from ABC stitch, and I was sunk also... Sigh. I wonder if it's done in DMC at least.
I'm excited to learn from your tutorial...I need some variety in my finishing!
Hello Vonna,What a lovely pinkeep! I discovered your blog some time ago, time to leave a comment! You make such beautiful things, wow.Thanks for sharing!Greetings, Carolien
Love your tutorials...thanks!
Really great tutorial Vonna. Can I ask why you use the interfacing? I have made several mattress style pincushions and never used interfacing. Also, I stitch four stripes for the sides as I think it makes the corners "sharper" if that makes any sense.Annemiek
I am adding my comment to your already 40 comments. THANK YOU, thank you, thank you. Bodacious.
Thanks for the tutorials. I just looking at your blog.
What a fabulous tutorial. I have always wanted to make one of these pillows. Now I will have to stitch something suitable for this technique.
Wohoo! I was wondering how to make these, Vonna! Maybe my BF in quilting and I can try to make one before I ruin a piece of my stitching! Thank you for taking the time to teach us. Love and hugs,Deb
Thanks for that Vonna, I will come back and study it more at coffee time but I think its about time I shut down the computer and got something done lol.
I really appreciate this tutorial. The instructions and pictures are very clear and easy to follow. Thank you so much for taking time to share this with us.
Great tutorial Vonna! I might actually be tempted to give this a go now! Thanks for sharing :D
wow, Vonna, thank you. You make it look so easy! I'll have to give this a try soon :)
Thanks for this tutorial, I take the opportunity to wish you and your family a happy new year !
Wonderful tutorials, Vonna! I might actually a few of these this year :)
I love your pincushion and the tutorial is fantastic. thanks so much Vonna!
Thank you so much for this tutorial, I think its the best one I've seen. I never would have thought of using the fray check, but it makes so much sense now.
Vonna, my friend, you are amazing. I took a look at this tutorial and you've done it in such a manner that I feel that *I* can actually make one of these! That's saying a lot, since I'm pretty much sewing-deprived. :-)I've been wanting to make one of these and I figured out the basic idea of it, but your tutorial added in all those little details that I didn't know. I scrolled through you tutorial list and discovered some other gems as well...maybe I'll attempt some of the other finishing techniques now!Do you mind if I include a link to your tutorial site on my blog? If you'd rather not, then that's fine, I completely understand. I've bookmarked it on my computer for definite future use!
Thanks Vonna! I just used your flatfold tutorial last week. I love your instructions, super easy to follow.
Another great tutorial Vonna - well done
Thanks Vonna! Can't wait to try it :-)
Vonna, your tutorial is excellent. Though I am not to sure I can handle this finish. Great photos and very clear too.
Impressive tutorial ! Simply great step by step with photo. Many will benefit it. I'm sure there will be loads of mattress pincushion to drool over after seeing your tut! Thanks for sharing your great work.
Another super tutorial!!!!! I need to try my hand at making one of these suckers!! CdeC is just great, the colours just pop!!!
Love your mattress Vonna :-) I am on my way catching up with your blog, I shall be here a while ;-))
