We’ve been so thrilled by your response to Julie Herman’s Cornflower Fields in the March/April ’10 issue. Her design is fresh and fun–and she’s delightful to work with.
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.
We work hard to give you accurate patterns, but will always ‘fess up and give you corrections when we discover errors. If you suspect a problem, check quiltmaker.com/corrections first. If you don’t see a correction posted, send an email to email@example.com.
Wiping the egg off our faces . . . and grateful this is recoverable. Still sorry that it happened.
