I am very grateful that so many quilters are using my patterns as inspiration for their creations. I do my best to make my instructions as clear and accurate as possible, but I have come to accept that no matter how hard I try, there will always be an occasional typo. Even in my books, that had me and 3 editors reviewing them, things slip by!
On this page I will list any errors or typos that I discover or that are brought to my attention. Locate them in alphabetical order by pattern name. You have my sincere apologies for any inconvenience they may have caused!
Antelope Canyon: Garden Delights variation
The first few copies of the additional pages needed to cut the Garden Delights strip rolls for Antelope Canyon went out with minor typos.
- On page 2 of the cutting instructions, after I have you cut the blue, green and purple strips down to 1 1/2″, all of the rectangles you cut from those strips will be 1 1/2″ wide.
- On a few of the rectangles (I, Q and G), I said they’d be 2 1/2″ wide, which is obviously impossible – my apologies!
Nature’s Jewels: Corrections and Clarifications
- If you have begun construction of your quilt and arrived at Part 4, please note that on Page 19, Step 3, the crosscuts for the V/W segments are 4 7/8″ as stated in the written instructions and in the caption (not as shown in the illustration).
- On the same page, Step 4, the Z squares are from Fabric #10 (not Fabric #1 as stated). I must have been having an off day when reviewing Page 19!!!
- It was just pointed out to me that I changed the value of the Dark Mustard large triangles in the outer border on Page 43, Part 12. Hopefully this didn’t prevent anyone from completing the quilt, but here are the 2 corrected illustrations – for Steps 5 and 6 (Step 7 is just a mirror image of Step 6):
