I deeply regret a mistake that QM made in the pattern. In the materials list the K’s are cut as rectangles. We had an alert reader ask how the K’s become the triangle shown in the pieced border diagrams. We forgot that step in the instructions. As we were reviewing the steps that followed in the pieced border, we discovered an error where we gave the cutting dimensions for the M patches 2” short.

Fortunately the yardage called for is correct and, if someone has already cut the M’s, it is recoverable with piecing.

It was simpler to rewrite Step 2 completely rather than explain where to substitute the new diagrams.
