Last year I joined the Frosted Pumpkin SAL. I ordered the fabric straight from the maker and it looks like this.
The mat underneath is 12 ½ x 18 ½. The fabric is marked 13 x 18. To add insult to injury, when I took this picture, I decided my feeble attempt at starting might be on the wrong side. Figures.
Just to prove I never learnJ, I signed up for two SALs this year, Frosted Pumpkin and Cloudsfactory. This time I ordered the kits. I thought the fabric company would take more care with the pieces they sent though them. Apparently I was wrong.
This is the Frosted Pumpkin piece. A little closer, but still not 13 x 18 according to my rulers.
Here’s the piece for the Cloudsfactory SAL. I don’t really have a complaint; it’s more of a question. How is it that the design area, which the pattern tells me is 13 x 13, comes out to be 11 ¾ on the fabric? I pinned it out every 10 squares down one side to make sure it fits. All I really did was confuse myself more.
These look like really cute patterns. So once I finish pinning them out I look forward to starting. And I’m sure I’ll buy more patterns from both. I just won't buy fabric.
Happy stitching World
