updates and correctioms

As careful as we try to be, odd things sometimes happen.
We've posted corrections published during the past few years in one convenient listing.

August/September 2014

Succotash Salad (page 52)
In the Materials list, 2½ yds. of white tonal fabric are needed, not 2 yds. as listed. If you have already purchased your fabric, you will need an extra ½ yd.

April/May 2014

Scrappy Argyle (page 36)
Diagrams 1 through 3 show a construction method that does not jive with the cutting directions given for the white block pieces. To match the diagrams, under the cutting directions for the assorted white fabrics on page 36, cut: Eighty-one 6" squares, recut each of 49 squares into six (not three) 1" x 6" pieces, and omit the 1" x 3" pieces entirely. They are not necessary. (Note: If you have already cut all the pieces as directed in the magazine, cut each of the 6" assorted print squares in half as directed in step 1, then cut the pieces in half again to yield a total of four 3" x 3" squares. Omit step 2 and refer to the Block Diagrams for assembly.)

Scrap Quilt Favorites 2013

Baby Rails (page 14)
Under the cutting directions: From each of the 12 fat quarter fabrics, cut: Nine 2⅜" squares (not 2¾" squares as stated). If you have already cut these squares, trim them down to the 2⅜" measurement.

October/November 2013

U.S.A. (page 74)
Due to a printer error, part of Diagram 1 is incorrect. The white/blue units shown in the magazine should be constructed in the same manner as the yellow/navy units in the same diagram. The text in step 1 is correct. See the revised diagram below.

June/July 2013

Patriotic Table Ensemble (page 78)
Under the Cutting Directions, the placemat middle border strips should be cut from the navy star fabric, not the navy burst fabric. To ensure that you have enough fabric, increase the navy star yardage to ½ yd. instead of ⅓ yd. Alternatively, you can cut the middle border strips from the navy star fabric at 1" wide instead of 1½" wide, in which case the ⅓ yd. listed will be just enough.

Holiday 2012

Away in a Manger (page 14)
The placement of the 3" x 4½" red and blue stained glass pieces in the outer border of the quilt was not specified. These pieces must be placed in the center of the top and bottom border strips. See border diagram below.

October/November 2012

Sunflower Fields (page 22)
A tiny typo crept into the Cutting Directions and remained hidden in plain sight—until now. Under the cutting for the cream floral and three beige tonal fabrics, cut six 2½" x 7⅛" pieces from each of the fabrics (for piece *), not two as stated. The yardage listed in the Materials list is sufficient.

June/July 2012

Fluttering Wings (page 42)
In the Quilt Layout Diagram, the top row of the quilt center was oriented upside down. The row should be rotated so that the Cross Roads blocks form an unbroken trellis as shown in the corrected diagram below.

Under the Cutting Directions for the assorted medium and dark green print fabrics, cut:
Twenty-four 1½" x 4¼" (not 4½") pieces (for Block C, third tier)
Twenty-four 1¼" x 3¼" (not 3¾") pieces (for Block C, second tier)
Twenty-four 1¼" x 2¼" (not 2¾") pieces (for Block C, first tier)

October/November 2011

Madison Garden Squared (page 19)
Under the Cutting Directions for the black burst fabric, cut eight (not four) 3¾" x 42" strips; recut into eighty-eight (not forty-four) 3¾ " squares, then cut diagonally in half once (not twice). Increase the yardage from ⅝ yd. to 1 yd.

Under the Cutting Directions for the orange swirl and purple tonal fabrics, cut one 3¾" x 42" strip; recut into four (not two) 3¾" squares, then cut diagonally in half once (not twice).

Autumn's Bounty (page 17)
Under Consider the Possibilities, the wording for the last two sentences concerning the optional layouts shown should read (changes in italics): For the pieced option shown, you'll need ½ yd. of gold tonal fabric, instead of ⅔ yd. For the stitched option shown, decrease the green dot fabric to ¼ yd. from ½ yd. The yardage for the orange tonal fabric remains the same for both options.

June/July 2011

Remembering (page 72)
Under the Materials List, the yardage for the medium yellow solid should be ¼ yd. (not ⅛ yd. as stated). If you have purchased ⅛ yd., you can click here to print out a smaller version of the bow appliqué pattern, so that you can cut your pieces. If you use the smaller bow size, you may opt to use fewer streamers.

April/May 2011

Fruitful Orchard (page 54)
Under the Cutting Directions for the red tonal fabric, cut: eight 3⅞" squares (not four as stated), then cut diagonally in half once (for Blocks A and C). If your fabric measures 44" across, you may be able to cut the extra squares. If not, purchase an extra ⅛ yd. of red fabric.

Paisley Park (page 26)
Some of the side units in the Block Diagrams are positioned incorrectly. To match the featured quilt, all units should be turned as shown in the revised diagram below to form red star points around the center square. If you made your blocks as shown in the original diagram, you will have both red and green star points, which will create a slightly different effect from the featured quilt.

Correct Diagrams


February/March 2011

Dancing Dragonflies (page 18)
We were a little overzealous when directing readers to cut up two of the fabrics used in this quilt. On page 18, under the Cutting Directions for the green leaf fabric, only eight 1½" x 42" strips (for the nine-patch sashing blocks) should be cut, not eighteen as stated. The yardage listed for this fabric can be reduced to 1 yd. If you have already cut the extra strips, use them to add another border between the middle and outer border. From the cream/brown vine fabric, only seven 1½" x 42" strips are needed, not nine as stated.

Briar Patch (page 32)
Two of the pieces in the Quilt Assembly Diagram were mislabeled. The E pieces are the ivory floral squares and the F pieces are the yellow tonal triangles. The Cutting Directions are correct.
September 2010

Picture Perfect Violets (page 26)
Under the Materials List: 1⅝ yds. (not 1 yd.) of lavender floral stripe (No. 0470-01 Natural) [Note: If you already purchased 1 yd. of fabric, you will need to purchase an additional ¾ yd. cut. If substituting a solid fabric or allover print, 1 yd. will be sufficient.]
July 2010

Butterfly Dreams (page 36)
Under the Cutting Directions for the blue paisley floral fabric, cut: One 4½" x 42" strip; recut into one (not four) 4½" x 20" piece and one 1½" x 18½" piece (for appliques)

Butterfly Dance (page 67)
In the Cutting Directions on page 67 for the white tonal fabric, the first line should read: Two 4" (not 4½") x 42" strips; recut into twelve 4" (not 4½") squares (for Block A and B centers)

In the Block A Assembly on page 68, the first step should read: 1. Round 1. Using 3⅜" half-square triangles, sew a white tonal triangle to each of two opposite sides of a 4" (not 4½") white tonal square as shown in Diagram 1.

The squared-up block size remains 10½" x 10½" in step 3, and 10" x 10" when sewn into quilt.

Home for the Holidays (page 60)
In the Quilt Assembly and Finishing
1. Sashing units. Stitch a 2½" red tonal square to each end of a 2½" x 14½" red large floral strip. Repeat to make a second short sashing unit. Sew three 2½" x 14½" red large floral strips alternately together with four 2½" red tonal squares. Repeat to make a second long sashing unit. Stitch the remaining 2½" x 14½" red large floral strips to each of two opposite sides of each Block A.

2. Referring to the Quilt Center Diagrams and noting placement, stitch Blocks A and B together with the setting sections in diagonal rows. Sew the rows together with the long and short sashing units, then attach the corner sections as shown. Trim to measure 46" x 46", making sure to leave a ¼" seam allowance beyond all seam intersections.

Under the Cutting Directions for the brown paisley fabric, cut: Seven 2½" x 42" strips (not 2" x 42" strips); recut into twenty 2½" squares and forty-eight 2½" x 42" pieces. If you have already cut these strips at 2" wide, and have purchased 4 yds. of fabric, you should have enough fabric scraps left over to cut all your squares and rectangles.

May 2009

Simple Pleasures (page 49)

Under the Cutting Directions for the green large floral, cut one 24" x 42" strip (not one 22½" x 42" strip); then cut one 22½" square and two 11½" squares (not one 11½" square). If you have already cut a 22½" strip, you can cut one 22½" square and one 16½" square, then cut the 16½" square diagonally in half twice for your corner triangles. If you have cut all your strips, you may need to purchase ⅜ yard extra of the green large floral.
