"Dammit Jim, I'm a quilter not a mathematician!" ;)
We spend a great deal of time writing our patterns and have them tested by some great sewers. This being said, we are all human and sometimes something gets by us, or could be explained in a clearer way. If you have any questions regarding our patterns, please feel free to email us.
Paradox Point Quilt Pattern:
Block 7 - Cutting for pieces 1 and 2 should be reversed. Also, the wording is a little off on all the cutting, there is only one Color A, Color B and Accent per block!
Block 12 - Pieces 14, 15 and 16 should be labeled "color B". Cutting is correct.
Empire Place Quilt Pattern:
Page 6 - "You will need two Y and two Z Block Edge foundations to 1 complete each block." -and- Cutting for the Main Accent Fabric should be (3) - 12" x WOF; subcut into (72) 1.5" x 12" rectangles (patch 2)
Page 17 - You will need 2 of each patch size listed under "From each of the 14 Border Colored Fabrics, cut:"
Corner Foundations - You only need to make 4 copies if you are making your own foundations.
In the book (not on the foundation papers) Block 4, Foundation B, piece 1 should be labeled "color."
Arcadia Avenue Quilt Pattern:
Block 7 - Cutting for the Medium should be (6) - 3" x 5.5" (section A6) and the Dark should be (12) - 3" x 6.5" (section 1) and (6) - 3" x 5.5" (section B6)
The Daily Duffle Bag Pattern:
The Bag Sides Template should be 10 1/2", not 10". Click here for a PDF of the correct Bag Side Template.
Main Street Quilt Pattern:
Material Requirements - 2 1/2" Strips needed = 42.
(If your patterns states "Revised 9/29/2013" in the bottom right hand corner, this information has been updated in your pattern.) In the Cutting Instructions, the first Main Fabric cutting amount should state, "From 23 Main Fabric 2 1/2" x WOF Strips, cut." The older versions only say 21 strips and this will not be enough.
Diamond Alley Quilt Pattern:
In the cutting instructions for the Background fabric, cut: (3) 13" x WOF strips instead of (3) 12 1/2" X WOF strips. If you have already cut them, do not fret! They will still work, just cut the Template pieces a 1/2" shorter.
Here is some additional information we added to the last page of the pattern to be a little clearer on how to put the quilt together (if your pattern says "Revised 5/15/13" in the lower left corner, then this is included):
- Sew the rows together on the diagonal adding setting triangles (Diagram 7).*** The setting triangles are oversized for ease of piecing. When adding the the setting triangles to the ends of rows, match the seam that will be inside the quilt, leaving the excess on the edge of the quilt. Try to keep the setting triangle’s straight of grain along the edges of the quilt. The edges will not be even, that is okay! The bottom right corner will fit differently because of the extra sashing. Don’t fret. It will be trimmed after the quilt is quilted. Iron towards sashing. Sew the rows together matching seams.***
- ***Helpful Hint*** When joining the blocks, sew with the sashing on the top and bias edges next to the feed dogs.
- To finish the quilt: layer the quilt top, batting and backing together. Quilt as desired. We trimmed the outer edge of the quilt, leaving 1/4" beyond the sashing points. This makes the diamonds float. Feel free to trim the quilt anyway you would like.
