Pattern corrections and clarifications
Although each of my patterns is read and reread and reread again, occasionally an error slips through or something needs some extra clarification. When brought to my attention, I will immediately fix the error in any future printings and post the corrections and/or clarifications here.
Pattern #135 Marmalade
A few quilters have mentioned that they used closer to 2-1/4 yds neutral instead of 2 yards.
Pattern #158 Zipper
In the cutting table at the top of page two, it says you need 42 strips for the background of the small quilt. You only need 27. The yardage requirements are correct.
Pattern #165 Puddle Jumping
On page 2, step 6, it says to sew 3-1/2" squares in two rows of two, but it should say to sew 3" squares in two rows of two. The cutting instructions are correct.
Pattern #166 Starlight
Just a note: Turns out a 60 mark on a rectangle ruler and a 60 degree triangle shaped ruler yield different size triangles. IF you use a Creative Grids or other brand 60 degree triangle ruler, you will need to cut larger strips for your large triangles. Before you cut your large triangles, please measure your finished pieced triangle unit and cut large triangles the same size.
Pattern #170 Mini Swoon
In step 3 of block assembly, it says to "draw a diagonal line from one corner to the opposite corner on each white square". This should say COLOR square. The illustration is correct.
Pattern #173 Red Letter Day
A miscalculation on the background fabric needs to be corrected from 2.75 yds to 3 yds. The materials list should read 3 yds background fabric.
NOTE- if you purchased this pattern as part of a Craftsy kit, your pattern is slightly different. Please make sure you have the most recent version of the PDF download from craftsy before beginning. There are no corrections to the PDF at this time.
Pattern #174 Round and Round MINI
On the assembly diagram on page 2 it shows a 1" width for the strips, but they should be 1.5". The cutting instructions are correct.
Pattern #184 Norway MINI
(PDF only) To clarify, Units A, B, and C on page 1 should be subcut 1.25". This was added a few days after the PDF was initially offered and was never printed.
On page 2 the directions for Unit E say the white piece is 1.25" x 5. It should actually be 1.25" x 4.25 The page 1 cutting measurement is correct.
Pattern #205 Handmade MINI
The final step on the quilt assembly page should read "Sew the four 12" x 12" pieces cut from the fat quarters in two rows of two and sew the rows together to make a 23.5" x 23.5" quilt back. Make a quilt sandwich with the top, back and batting... (continue as written)
Pattern #210 Handmade with Love
On page 3 under LARGE BOWS, the third line of step one should read:
-3 strips 4" x WOF. Subcut (5) 4" x 7.5" pieces per strip...
Pattern #212 Star Bright
On page 1, step 5 should say: From the fabric for the sashing, cut 16 strips 2.75” x WOF. Subcut 8 of the strips into 2 strips 2.75” x 18.5”. Set aside.
Pattern #213 Spools 2
On page 1 cutting instructions step 1, the fifth line should say:
15 strips 1.5" x WOF. Cut 5 of the strips in half, making (10) 21" strips. Sew each of the half strips to one full strip, making 10 strips and trim them to 1.5" x 63.5". Set aside. Step 5 on page two should also say 1.5" x 63.5".
Pattern #222 Springville
On page 4 step 13 the small flowers are rotated incorrectly. Sew them together as shown below.
In step 2 place the white square on top of the pieced square, RST (a). Draw the line on the back of the white square (c) and sew as shown below. Open your first block before cutting them in half to make sure it looks like step d. Continue as shown.
All Bundled Up #232
In step 15 Mittens, J should be 1.5" x 3.5", not 1.5" x 3.25".
Because of the angle the sails are cut, you may have a little extra on a point toward the top or bottom and that’s okay! All the points don’t have to be perfect and will blend into the background when the blocks are sewn together. Here are some close ups of mine, following the steps in the pattern:
A different trimming method would make all the plaid and stripe prints crooked, so I prefer this way of dealing with the points, but you can add an extra inch to all the sail rectangles to have extra room to trim if you are more worried about the points.
