The "perfect" piece of fabric I was planning on using turns out to be 32 and 26 count. Huh? Well it's 32 count horizontally and only 26 count vertically! So everything turns out longer and thinner than the chart.
I used it for the Travelling Pattern and it looks okay on that.

I'm befuddled at Jo's comment. How does that happen?

Insert apology here if I'm supposed to know this because I've been a real ditz lately.

SHEESH...

Sorry for the befuddlement! Basically the threads which run horizontally are thicker than the threads that run vertically so you get less of them to the inch.
In an inch there are 32 thin threads going vertically and only 26 thicker threads going horizontally.
Here's a link to my blog post with a pic:
