No matter how many editors and checks a book goes through there are always, always mistakes... sometimes I think I stare at the pages so long that they don't make sense any more. Thanks to sharp eyes and pattern testers, we have a few issues with Hand Quilted With Love. I will be setting up an errata page this weekend that has everything on it.
Made to Measure
- the centre medallion magenta square should be cut 6 1/8" not 7 1/8"
- The Border one squares should be cut 2 7/8" not 1 7/8"
- Border two, two of the pieces should be cut 2 3/4" x 25" not 25 1/2"
- Border three, the squares from the purple fabric should be 5 1/4" not 5"
The templates for Paint by Numbers and the circles in Marmalade Medallion have been printed to the wrong size. The circles HAVE seam allowance added already (it says to add seams), they should have been printed with NO seam allowance, so they are the CUT size not the sewn size, they should be 1/4" smaller for the purposes of drawing the sewing lines, and then cut out with a 1/4" larger seam. The PBN template the small flat piece at the top should only be 3/8" wide - they have printed it at 3/4".
I will have these templates redrawn and they will be available for download on the errata page. The reason there is a template for Paint by Numbers is that I have used jelly rolls for the stars - you can't cut a 2 7/8" square from a jelly roll. If you are using yardage, simply cut your squares at 2 7/8" and cut them in half on the diagonal and you will be fine. If you have a half square triangle ruler this will be fine too, you would cut 2 1/2" triangles from that.
I'm hoping that's it - I certainly have been through it 4 million or so times already, but I'll be doing so again today....apologies and please know that this is not through negligence, rather through simple human error! Thanks
