Pattern Clarifications / Errata

A Scrappy Life

Block height has been verified in A Scrappy Life; the pattern is correct and works out mathematically.  If the height of your strip sets is larger than what is stated in the pattern, your seam allowance is a tad bit too small.  If the height of your strip sets is smaller than what is stated in the pattern, your seam allowance is a tad bit too big.  Seam allowance is even more crucial when there are so many seams within a strip set; even being off a little bit can make 1/2" difference.

Ava's Garden

Page 1 Notes:  There will be (...) total sets of 6 matching pieces each.  (not 8)

Boundless Beauty

April 14, 2018:  Page 7, General Instructions should read: "Block A is entirely strip pieced, and Blocks B, C, D, and E are ..."  {this error has been corrected in the July 2018 revision.}

The background watermark will be less prominent on future updates.  {this change has been made in the July 2018 revision}

Brick Cottage Lane 2

At the top of Pages 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 reference is made to Page 7 for General Instructions.  This should state, refer to Page 5 for General Instructions.

Castle Dreams

If purchased before 06/18/2020, at the top of Page 3 the left column in the chart should read:

  • Strip Set A (10" x 21"),
  • Segment A (2.5" x 10")
  • Block A (6.5" x 10")

Connected

Revise Background cutting instructions to Queen 39, King 46.
If purchased before 04/28/2020, Fabric Requirements:  Throw size change the 7 FQs for Light and Dark fabrics to 8 each.

If purchased PDF before 1/30/2020, Page 1 Cutting Instructions.

Replace this line: "IF USING 2-1/2” STRIPS (skip if using FQs or 2-1/2" strips):" 

with "IF USING 2-1/2” STRIPS (skip if using FQs or 1/4-yard cuts):"


Envision

Fabric #5, Throw size only should read:
  • Cut (2) 10-1/2” x WOF strips, from each strip sub-cut (16) 2-1/2” x 10-1/2” rectangles; 30 total.  Label H.

  • Cut (2) 12-1/2” x WOF strips, from each strip sub-cut (16) 2-1/2” x 12-1/2” rectangles; 30 total.  Label I.

 All other sizes remain as stated.

Formation

As stated in the pattern, it is correct that the background squares are light gray in the diagrams and the print squares are dark gray in the diagrams.  If you see the diagrams as the opposite (the background squares as dark gray and the print squares as light gray), it's your eyes playing tricks on you, and you need to refocus them somehow.
In the diagram, the two light gray squares (background) overlap each other in the middle of the graphic with the black line running through them.  They are sitting on top of the dark gray square (the print).

Home Awaits

If you question that the background strip for the pieced block is cut incorrectly in the instructions, please check your seam allowance.  With a seam allowance even slightly over 1/4", the 4 seams (each with 2 pieces of fabric) would easily make the block too narrow.  Many 1/4" presser feet are not accurate, so test yours out with some test strip sets.  There is not an error in the pattern regarding the background piece width; it all works out mathematically with an exact 1/4" seam allowance.

Homeward Bound

Clarification:  The B strips in Strip Set U are random.

If purchased before 10/15/2019.  Page 7, please update the paragraph at the top of the page with the following:

"Trim quilt center if necessary, 1/4” outside the points where the Setting Triangles meet the Chain Blocks. 

Press all border seams away from the quilt center.  Join Inner Border strips end to end with straight seams.  Then join Outer Border strips end to end with straight seams.  Measure the quilt vertically through the center and piece two side Inner Border strips to fit.  Attach side Inner Borders.  Measure quilt horizontally through the center and piece two top/bottom Inner Borders to fit.  Attach top and bottom Inner Borders.  Measure quilt vertically through the center and piece two side Outer Border strips to fit.  Attach side Outer Borders.  Measure quilt horizontally through the center and piece two top/bottom Outer Border strips to fit.  Attach top and bottom Outer Borders."

Key to My Heart

Page 3:  For Block A, use A squares.  For Block B, use B squares.

Mariposa

Cutting Instructions, Fabric #4, King size should read, "Cut (3) 2” x WOF strips, sub-cut each strip into (21) 2” squares; 61 total. Label 25 G and Label 36 K."

 

Nantucket

For quilt kit and pattern download purchased at Connecting Threads, make the following corrections:
  • Page 2, Cutting Instructions, Fabric #1 should read "rectangles" not "squares".
  • Page 5, Block A HSTs, press toward the A4 piece.
  • Page 5, Diagram 8, bottom row arrows should face inward toward the center square.
  • Page 6, BE HSTs, press toward the B4 piece.
  • Page 6, BB HSTs, press toward the B11 piece.
  • Page 6, Diagram 8, bottom row arrows should face inward toward the center square.

Oh Happy Day!

Pages 2 and 3 block names have been corrected.  References to how many Block BB are in a column should state Block AA rather than Block BB.  This error was caught very quickly, so very few customers will find this error in their pattern.

Ombre Mountains

Before October 7, 2020:  Fabric Selection Inspiration Page is missing the bottom 5 fabrics for both versions.  
  • To the Ombre version add the following:  294 Hyacinth, 295 Purple, 477 Zoe, 476 Berry Pie, 473 Antique Rose
  • To the Allison Glass version add the following:  9387-O Tiger Menagerie, 9256-E1 Strawberry Embroidery, 9387-E Salmon Menagerie, 8450-E1 Iodine Stitched, 9387-P Dahlia Menagerie
Before 10/14/2020:  Fabric Combinations Chart is missing Column D/E.  Top to bottom in that column should read 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 6. 

Shooting Stars

At the bottom of Page 1, replace "Dark Blue" with "Red", two times.  All other instructions remain as they are.

Sunnyside

Reference to dark gray and light gray are for the diagrams in the pattern, not the color of fabrics.  The pattern states, "In Diagrams, Color 1 is Dark Gray, Color 2 is Light Gray, and Background is White."  Per the illustration on the last page, dark gray is in the position of the Yellow on the cover quilt and is thus Color 1, and light gray is in the position of the Gray on the cover quilt and thus Color 2.

Sweet Caroline II

Cutting Instructions, the first chart, Lap size, Fabric #1 Label A column should read 14 instead of 12.  This does not change the Fabric Requirement for Fabric #1.
 

Waterfall

The sashing instructions regarding the ends of rows and setting triangles is correct as written.  The strip lengths are correct.  Make the pattern as written; it all works out in the end.  😊
 
Go to Throw Quilt Top Assembly Page (the page number varies, depending on which pattern you have), in the upper right, add "Row 6 Bottom 16-1/2".  This error has been fixed on all but the very first batch  of patterns from October 2020.
 
All references to Twin size on the Block Assembly pages should state Throw size.  

Winter Solstice

Purchased at Connecting Threads.  Page 1 - Colorways 3 and 4 are accidentally switched in the description boxes and do not match the fabric swatches.  Colorway 3 is the yellows, and colorway 4 is the greens.  This does not affect the remainder of the pattern in any way; follow the pattern as written.

Woven Windows

Cutting Instructions for 10" squares:
For all sizes, the second line of cutting instructions is incorrect.  It is impossible to cut the size and number of squares indicated from a 10" square.  The 4-7/8" squares labeled K need replaced with 4-3/4" squares; all quantities stay the same, and still label them K.  This will not affect block assembly as these squares are used in the setting triangles and are oversized already, so making them a tad bit smaller is still okay.
