My first one...

This is my first attempt at using a quilt pattern. 

Initially I thought it would be very easy... Just stitching straight lines... But no! I was wrong! It requires a lot of calculation and also we need to be very precise with our measurements. I did this by measuring the length using a 12 inch scale on my vegetable chopping board. I am new to the use of rotary cutter. The cuts do not come that straight! Need more practice, I guess!

So, how do you find the new cover for the padding of our chair? :)

Arthi, I am so impressed with this! What your pictures shows is all 8 points meeting nicely in the center and the corners are very crisp. Using a rotary cutter is like any skill - you have to practice. And you are off and running. Congratulations! And thanks for sharing this picture!
