Pattern Corrections

Even though my patterns undergo vigorous testing, I find that there are occasional corrections and clarifications needed after a pattern is printed/downloaded. Before you begin making a pattern, check here first to make sure all of your information is up to date. Corrections are listed below, in order of newest to oldest. (If you can't find a pattern listed below, that means there are no corrections.)

Regarding my books--you can find Charm School Corrections here and Jelly Filled Corrections here. Happy quilting!



*The following note is applicable only to printed booklets--and is only a slight tweak to cutting the green fabric in order to accommodate unidirectional prints.

In the "Cutting" section, the scrappy version Step #2 should say:

"From each ½ yard of green fabric, carefully cut the following:

· (2) strips 8½’’ x WOF. Subcut (8) 5¾’’ x 8½’’ rectangles (4 per strip).

· From the excess, cut (4) 2’’ x 8½’’ rectangles."


-For Step #14, the unfinished size of the unit should measure 2½'' x 2½''. (The inital version published said 4½'' x 4½''. This error was corrected within hours of the PDF pattern being released and only affects original batch of printed copies.)


-Step #14 should say "Trim 4 background strips 3'' x 80'' to match the measurement." (NOT 4'' x 80'')



As of 3/6/17: The pattern was revised with a small tweak in cutting in order to make it easier to get all required pieces per fat quarter. (Some fat quarters aren't always 22'' wide, so this offers a little more leeway.) 

The most current version will list:

-A Finished Block size of 16'' x 16½''.

-A Finished Quilt size of 64'' x 66''. 

-Instructions to cut a 7½'' x 17½'' rectangle under the first bullet of Step #1 in the Cutting section.

If your copy differs, let me know and I'll email you a current copy.


*NOTE: This correction only applies to PDF copies purchased on the day of release in 2016. It is unlikely this note applies to you, but you can check to make sure your copy says the following:

-Under "Cutting" for the white fabric, the third bullet point should simply say to cut (12) strips 2½'' x WOF--NO SUBCUTTING NEEDED. (Don't subcut them into 2½'' x 4½'' rectangles.)

- - > In the event you have subcut the white 2½'' x 4½'' rectangles, no problem! Just follow suit to subcut each background border strip print into (6) rectangles 2½'' x 4½'' as well. Sewing the rectangles into their rows to match the diagram, alternating print and white. 

-Under "Cutting" for the pink sashing fabric, the last bullet point should say to trim to 4½'' x 72½''.

C'EST LA VIE (from Fat Quarter Shop's Sew Sampler Box November 2016).

-On page 3, the instructions for making half-square triangles should say to sew 1/4'' away from the marked line on both sides, then cut along the marked line and press open the HSTs. (Don't sew directly on the marked line.)


-The initial release of the PDF calls for too many 5" white squares. You will need (96) white squares 5'' x 5''

-In Step 9, under "White Fabric" you need (6) squares 5'' x 5'' per block, not (9).


*This clarification only applies to original copies printed (or PDFs purchased) before May 2019--the ones with a yellow gingham background on the pattern cover:

In Step 4 of "Block Assembly," please note that the white rectangle 6'' x 6½'' should be oriented so the 6½'' sides run along the top/bottom. Since it's near square (and not labeled), it could be hard to tell just looking at it.


*NOTE: This correction only applies to original printing from 2015--the one with Gooseberry fabric on the cover, including an all-navy solid version in the bottom-right corner.

Step 7 should say: "Sew the “B” unit to the left of the “O” unit and press. Attach the “C” unit on top; press. Repeat to add the “L” unit to left (press), the “M” unit on top (press), the “D” unit to the left (press), and the “E” unit to the top (press)." 

The diagram is correct.


-Step 1 should say to cut (2) rectangles 4'' x 10''.


-Under the "Materials Needed" section, add 1 2/3 yards of scallop trim fabric for the roof
