The currently downloadable pattern includes all known corrections.
Some earlier versions of the pattern should be corrected as follows:
- Fabric 2 – The original pattern indicated that one of the half-strips cut was not used; all half-strips are used in the quilt. There is no change to yardage or cutting requirements.
- Fabric 11 – To maintain the straight of grain at the top and bottom edges of the quilt, we recommend cutting the Fabric 11 (Gold)/Fabric 14 (Jewel) rectangles 19″ x 32-3/4″ (vs. the originally specified 19-1/2″ x 32″). Although the original measurements will work, the revised dimensions will create a better-fitting triangle that keeps the outside edges on grain.
