Corrections

We strive to make every pattern error free and easy to follow.  It is a big job, and unfortunately sometimes things slip through.  If you find an error in our patterns, please email us so we can make corrections in the pattern and post the information for people who have already bought the pattern.
 
Once an error is found, we correct all patterns or books before they are shipped out.  If you have any of the patterns listed below, we suggest you verify if you have an updated pattern.
 
All corrections will be shown in red.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Trendy Table 2

On the front inside cover of the book, there is a large photo with 6 runners.  The second runner should be listed as "Sparkler", not Glimmer.

On the Holly Hocks pattern on page 9, under the Grey fabric, it says that you need 2 - 3" x 44" strips (then cut into 6 - 3" x 8.5" and 6 - 3" x 5").  You will actually need slightly more than 2 strips to get all of the pieces.  

On the Pumpkin Patch runner, Step 6 on page 20 has an error in the diagram that shows the pumpkins and the leaf units sewn together.  On the far right of the diagram, the pumpkin stem should be aligned with the stem of leaf block next to it.  To see how this should be correctly aligned, look at the intersections where the other pumpkin stems meet the leaf block within this diagram.  We are sorry for letting this error slip through. If you follow the instructions for how the blocks are made in Steps 3 and 5, they will sew together correctly. The error happened when I laid out the diagrams, so at least there is no ripping involved!

Angles With Ease 2

For the pattern, "Let it Snow":

I have had a couple people ask how to cut a 9 1/2" tall half triangle, when the Triangler ruler is only 7 1/2" tall.  


It's really easy to cut this larger size - 

Lay the Triangler along the edge of the rectangle as shown in the directions on How to Cut Half Triangles on page 3.  (so the little flat top of the ruler is even with the top of the rectangle, etc as shown in the picture).  Cut along the right side of the Triangler, then slide the ruler down to the bottom of the cream rectangle and align the right side of the ruler with the line you have already cut. Finish cutting along the right side of the ruler so that the entire length along the right side of the half triangle is cut.  Another option is to position the Triangler as shown in the diagram on how to cut Half Triangles, and then lay second longer ruler next to the right edge of the Triangler.  Pull the Triangler away and cut next to the longer ruler.

Also from this pattern, on page 22 under the cutting instructions for the background fabric, the instructions should say to cut 11 and 11 Reverse (not 12 and 12 Reverse) 5 1/2" tall half triangles.  

Angles With Ease

Baby Juniper:


There isn't a correction for the pattern and it has been tested several times. I have also taught the class quite a bit and have noticed that there are a lot of size variations that come out of this pattern, just based on all the different styles of workmanship, the bias edges, the funky angles, etc.   In addition, I have gotten several emails with the same comments - mainly that the trunk sections are turning out longer than the tree sections.  There are a few different things that could be causing the trouble:

 

#1 - There are 16 seams in the section with the trees and only 8 in the section with the trunks, so if you are off even a little bit with the seam allowance, that can cause the tree section to be smaller than the trunk section. It sounds like that probably isn't the case with you, but I thought I would mention it.

#2 - The tree section has lots of bias edges and I have found that there is more shrinkage with the bias edges if you use lots of steam (which I do). I found that if I gave the fabric a good steaming before I cut out all the angles, I had less trouble with shrinkage.  The trunk section has no bias edges so there is a lot less shrinkage.

#3 - Aligning the angles - If you don't have the angles lined up just perfectly, this can cause your piece to come out a different measurement. You are aligning them right if you have a perfect 1/4" seam allowance above the tips of the trees.  If this is off, the section can be larger or smaller.


As you can see, there are quite a few ways to get off! (and this is just to name a few.) If you have already sewn the sections of the runner and have found the tree section to be too larger, it is probably easiest just to take a little deeper seam on the trunk sections so that is turns out a little smaller. That is much easier than adjusting the section with the trees. 

If you haven't started the runner, you can always sew the tree section first and measure it before starting the trunk section.  The tree section should measure    34 3/4" unfinished.  If it is less than that, just cut the tree trunks a little skinner to accommodate that (for example, cut the width a scant 2 1/8" or 2").



Diamond Diva

There is a typo in the cutting instructions for the topper.  If you are cutting the binding for two toppers out of one fat quarter, you will need to cut 8 - 2 1/8" strips x 22" strips.  If your fat quarter is a little bit bigger than 18", you can cut the strips 2 1/4".

Little Charmers 5

In the Boardwalk table runner, please note that the first diagram in Step 3 should have the skinny strip on the left side of the block slid up 1/4" from the bottom of the block, as was done in the second diagram in Step 2.

The Bella Bag

The Bella Bag
Please note that I used Dritz brand grommets.  Since I have published the pattern, new brands have hit the market and not all 1" or 1 9/16" grommets are the same.  That number is the inside measurement, but the outer measurement may vary depending on the width of the grommet, the shape, etc.  The outer measurement of the Dritz 1 9/16" grommet is 2 3/8".  If your grommet is wider than that, please make adjustments to the size of the top band.

Simply Sixties

Simply Sixties   ANK293
 
If you are making the Beach Balls quilt, you may need an extra 1/4 yard of the white fabric, depending on how you cut.  It you completely open up the strips when cutting (rather than having them folded so they are 22" wide), you will make better use of the fabric and have less waste at the fold.  If you use this method to cut, the fabric requiremends in the pattern will be enough.
 
Correction to the White Diamonds quilt:
From the Fat Quarters cut:  2 - 8" x 22" strips. (not 8 1/2" x 22")

On The Run

 
Correction to the pattern "Fresh Blooms" pattern from the book On the Run:

(Corrections are in red)

Little Charmers 6

The fabric requirements for Metro Girl should call for 1/2 yard of brown.

Stop, Drop, and Roll

Gettin' Ziggy With It:
If you are using fat quarters, instead of Jelly Rolls, you will need more of the brown print fabric.  You will need 1 7/8 yards ( 2 5/8 yards ) (3 5/8 yards) instead.  Cut into 25 (35) (49) 2 1/2" x 44" strips.
 
Center of Attention:
On Step 2, please omit the middle line of text - "Finish by adding the small colored triangles".
 

Sizzlin' Sixties

This book was designed with the Creative Grids 60 Degree Triangle Ruler.  If you are not using this ruler, or do not have access to this ruler, we have put together an instructional handout on how to make other rulers work.  We recommend the Creative Grids Ruler as it has a flat top, and works well for cutting the half hexagons used in many of the patterns.  Please click on the link below for information on how to make other rulers work.
