Pattern Corrections

We are sorry that these misprints slipped into the first print of the following publications. They have been reprinted with the corrections but in case you have received the first print, make the necessary adjustments.

STRIPOLOGY SQUARED

Another Part of Me: page 13
The Background fabric yardage for the Lap size should be 4-1/2 yds and the Full size should be 6-3/4 yds.

Prisms: page 47

The Sashing fabric yardage for the Twin size should be 1-3/4 yd

Fractions: page 39 

The King size will be 144 blocks and takes 144 squares. The layouts in step 6 on page 41 should refer to the Queen where it says Full and King where it says Queen.

 

STRIPOLOGY

Strip Ribbons: page 4 and 5
Sashing fabric should be subcut into the following:

  • 1-1/2” wide strips
  • Subcut into 1-1/2” x 13-1/2” rectangles
  • Subcut into 1-1/2” x 7-1/2” rectangles
  • Subcut into 1-1/2” x 6-1/2” rectangles


    In step 9, those same rectangles should be referred to as the 1-1/2” x 7-1/2” sashing rectangles and NOT 2-1/2” x 7-1/2”.

    I-Strip: page 6 and 7
    Step 1: Make 7 strip units for Mini size (not 3).
    Step 4. Half Blocks: Now sew two 1-1/4” x 2-1/2” background rectangles to each side of all the 1-1/2” x 2-1/2” (not 1-1/4”) rectangles from the assorted strips cut for the half blocks.
    Step 5: Make 4 for Mini size (not 2).

    Strips & Salsa: page 8
    Cutting for background fabric for Crib Size:
    Cut Four 2-1/2” squares (not 2)

    GE-136 STRIP OFF

    Some patterns with the wrong fabric requirements for the dark/medium fabrics and sewn strip units for the TWIN size went into circulation, they have been reprinted but just in case, here are the correct fabric requirements.

      Crib size  Lap size    Twin size
    Dark-Medium
    2-1/2” strips.
    18 strips of
    3 color groups*
    30 strips of
    5 color groups*
    54 strips of
    9 color groups*
    Light
    2-1/2” strips
    12 strips 18 strips 31 strips

    *for example, 6 red strips, 6 blue strips, 6 yellow strips and so on.
    (strips need to be at least 42” long, usable fabric, not measuring selvages)

    Binding 1/2 yd. 2/3 yd.  3/4 yd.
    Backing 1-1/2 yds 3 yds. 5-1/3 yds.

    If using fat EIGHTS instead of strips (make sure the fat eights have at least 21” of usable fabric lengthwise)

    Dark/mediums 15 fat 8’s from
    3 color groups
    25 fat 8’s from 
    5 color groups
    43 fat 8’s from
    9 color groups
    Lights  8 fat 8’s 12 fat 8’s 21 fat 8’s

     Inside the pattern, step 1 should read:

    1.        Arrange your strips into color families, you should have 3 color families for crib size, 5 for lap size and 9 for twin size. Take 5 strips from each color family and sew them together into a strip unit. Press the seams in the same direction, their width should measure 10-1/2”. Make 3 strip units for crib size, 5 for lap size and 9 for twin size.  Subcut the strip units into 10-1/2” squares. You will get 4 squares out of each strip unit and then you will have 12 squares for crib size, 20 for lap size and 35 for twin size.

     


    GE-140 STRIP TWIST

    In a few places in the pattern, the largest size of the quilt is referred to as a Full size, but it should always be Twin size.  The pattern has 3 sizes, crib, lap and TWIN.

     


    GE-141 STRIP STACKS

    In the cutting instructions in the pattern, the largest size of the quilt is referred to as a Twin size, but it should  be Full size. 

     

    Strip Requirements for the Crib and Full size should read:

      Crib size Full size
    Dark-Medium
    2-1/2" strips 
    13 strips    57 strips

    For the Half Block Assembly, the steps should be numbered 5.-8. and not 1.-4.

     


    GE-502 FAST & FURIOUS

    In steps 2 and 6, the squares should be folded with the WRONG sides together and not right sides together. In the second printing of the book, this mistake has been corrected.

     

    Page4, Lucky Charms Runner.

    In step 2, the squares should be folded with the WRONG sides together and not right sides together. In the second printing of the book, this mistake has been corrected.

     

    Page 24, The Runaround Bag

    In the last testing of the pattern we determined that no stabilizer would be needed for the handles but forgot to remove the cutting information for it. In the cutting for the stabilizer, ignore the two 2" x 20-1/2" strips for the handles.

     


    GE-503 STRIP ON

    Page 24, Pinball Wizard.

    In the fabric requirements the number of strips needed were wrong for the Crib Size. The correct number of strips needed is 16. 

    Also in step 3, quilt assembly; the twin size set should be 5 x 7 blocks so the size of the

    Twin is actually 64-1/2" x 83-1/2".

     


    GE-206 QUILTS FOR OLIVIA

    Page 2, Jewels.

    In the fabric requirements the amount needed for Fabric E is 3/4 yard instead of 1/2 yard.

     


    GE-504 FAST & FURIOUS HOLIDAY

    Page 11, Trick or Treat Wall Hanging.

    In step 4 the first sentence is missing in the instructions. It should say: "Place the folded 3" fabric A squares on all four corners of the unit from step 3 and pin down."

    In the second printing of the book, this mistake has been corrected.

     

    Page 22, Spruce Lane Runner.

    In step 5, it refers to the step 5 units but it should be step 4 units.

     

    Note: If you are having trouble with the center units fitting in this pattern, read the following:

    The actual measurements for the cutting should have been 6-5/16 for the center square and 4-7/8 for the triangles. Since I don't want to use "sixteenths" in my cutting instructions, I went up to the next size which is a 6-1/2". With that size of a square, the triangles needed to be a little larger too. It's usually better to have things bigger rather than smaller. Most of the testers came back with this working out fine because when you sew through the backing and batting, your seam allowances get a little bigger. There were 2 testers that came back with this being too large for the other pieces so they had to go down to a 6-1/4" square and 4-7/8" triangles and then things worked out. If your unit is more than a 1/4" larger than the trunk units, I recommend making the adjustments.
