Those Damned Chairpads!!!

Friday, July 30, 2010

Okay. Now I can show you those damned chair pads I made for Bossy Daughter's dining room.

Most of you know the story of not enough fabric, wrong cutting instructions, and the huge fabric search. You also know the story about trying to figure out how to have completely opposite patterns on each side, how to quilt them, and how to get the ties on correctly for each side.

Well, say no more. Here are the finished products:




This is "Side One", done in a Pineapple pattern.


This is "Side Two", using the Bear Paw pattern.


The Tie-backs sure came out nicely, didn't they?

And now, for the best photo of all.................

IN BOSSY DAUGHTER'S DINING ROOM, WAY AWAY FROM ME IN MASSACHUSETTS!

I really worked on these, trying to figure out the best way of making them. I began to really hate them toward the end, but you quilters out there know what I am saying.

I am actually playing with the idea of making some new pads for my own dining room now................JUST THINKING ABOUT IT!!! Dont' expect to see any soon, though!

Oh, yeah. The pads fit HER chairs much better than mine, which is a very good thing, as Martha would say!

    I thought I was the only one who "hated" something when I finished and then said later on......hey - kind of neat!!!!! Good job on the pads. I made cushions for a seating area with piping and all - I about went out of my gourd!!! But - it was worth the work - they look nice.
