I'm not that great at sewing.  I've made a few quilts but it seems that putting other things together is beyond me!  At any rate I made a nook cover using these two tutorials:

For putting the squares together:

For the nook cover itself:

SO rather than tell you all of the many things that I did wrong, fixed, did wrong in a new and different way, sort of fixed...well you get the idea - I'm going to just show you the pics of the finished product.  I'm pretty happy with it but it would be hard not to be happy with something made from that fabric line!!!

I think its great! I adore the Wonderland by Momo fabrics.  I made a patchwork scarf out of it for myself.
