Although each of my patterns is read and reread and reread again, occasionally an error slips through. When called to my attention, I will immediately fix the error in any future printings and post the corrections here.
If you find any errors, please contact me.
Pattern #109 JOY
On the back of the pattern on the materials list, it should also list *one green fat quarter.* It does include it in the instructions on the inside, but should be listed on the back as well. Also, instructions #2 should read “...between a 3” square and a 3”x1-1/2” strip.” The correct measurement is listed above in the cutting instructions.
Some copies in one printing were run with #2 cut off the bottom. It should read:
"2. Inner border: Out of a brown fat quarter, cut 2 strips 12" x 1-1/2", and 2 strips 14" x 1-1/2". With RST, pin and stitch in place two opposite sides, starting with the 12" strips. Press seam to dark side. Make sure corners are square. Repeat for other 2 sides."
Pattern #116 Wallflower
- Cutting... (part 2) “Cut 1-1/3” neutral” should read “Cut 1-1/3 yds of neutral”

corrected after first printing
Pattern #121 Sassafras

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.
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) 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.
