Issue 1

Window Box

Page 69-71:


The illustrations 4A, 4B, 4C, the full quilt illustration and photos 5 and 6 show the snowballed corners meeting in the center of the block, which is incorrect. All snowballed corners should be on the outside edges of each block.

Should Read:


(9) 7¾" strips across the width of the fabric. Subcut each of the strips into (5) 7¾" squares for a total of 42 squares.


Note: If you have already cut the solid fabric into 7½" squares, use the template provided to cut the circles rather than the ruler. Trace the template onto a folded piece of freezer paper to make the correct size. The circle will not quite measure 7½" but will work nicely.


Fuse, mark, and cut

Press the sold squares to the fusible web and trim the fusible evenly with the edges of each square. Place the Easy Circle Cut Ruler on the paper backing and draw a half circle using the 7" slot. Fold the square in half and cut on the drawn line. When you unfold the piece, you will have a 7½" circle.

Page 80:

The fabric requirements and quilt size given on page 84 reflect the diagram provided on page 85. The photo of the quilt on pages 82 and 91 show an inner border and a larger outer border and we regret that we did not provide the information needed for them.

If you would like to make your quilt with the borders as shown in the photo, you will need ¾ yard of fabric for the 2" finished inner border and a 1¼ yards for the 5" finished outer border. (Refer to the Construction Basics on page 100 for Border Instructions.)

The fabric requirements also change to 5 yards - vertical seam(s) for the backing.

The size of the quilt will change to 71" x 80½".

  • subcut each strip into (12) 3½" rectangles. The total of 1144 remains the same.

Disappearing Pinwheel Shoofly

Pages 55:


Pieced Border

From the background fabric, cut:

(3) 5 ¾" strips across the width of the fabric.

Subcut the strips into:

(16) 2½" x 5¾" rectangles

(22) 3" x 5¾" rectangles


For top and bottom borders: piece 8 pinwheels and (9) 2½" x 5¾" rectangle strips together. Start and end with a rectangle. Make 2. Attach to quilt top and bottom.

For both sides: Use 11 pinwheels with (10) 3" wide rectangles between them – (trim 3" to 2¾" for an exact fit). Begin and end with a pinwheel. Make 2. Attach to either side of the quilt.


Note: Not everyone uses a perfect ¼" seam allowance so pieced borders sometimes have to be adjusted. If the border you are using is a little too short, take out a few seams and resew using a scant ¼" seam allowance. You’ll want to do that in several places so it won’t be noticeable. If the pieced border is too long, take in the seam allowance in several places.

Outer Border

Cut (8) 2½" strips across the width of the background fabric. Sew the strips together end-to-end to make one long strip. Trim the borders from this strip.


Refer to Borders (pg. 104) in the Construction Basics to measure and cut the outer borders. The strips are approximately 86½" for the sides and approximately 71¼" for the top and bottom.


Quilt and Bind

Layer the quilt with batting and backing and quilt. After the quilting is complete, square up the quilt and trim away all excess batting and backing. Add binding to complete the quilt. See Construction Basics (pg. 103) for binding instructions.

Falling Charms

Pages 63:


step 1 should read:
Stitch 5 inch squares to 2½" strips


step 2 Layout says the orientation with corners in the upper right and lower left. That way the charms will fall from the upper left corner of the quilt to the bottom right like the photo on page 60. If you position the blocks as shown in photo 4 the charms will fall diagonally from the upper right to the bottom left! This isn’t a huge problem, just an inconsistency. Either layout will create a beautiful quilt.

Chopped Block

In order to have the full 42 print Jelly Roll strips needed for the project, purchase an extra ¼ yd of the outer border fabric. Cut (2) 2½" strips to use in creating the blocks. There should be plenty of solid 2½" leftover strips from cutting “A” Sets that no additional background fabric is needed.

Begin by cutting (2) 2½" WOF strips from the outer border fabric. Add these to the print JR strips. Total: 42 WOF print strips.

Self-Binding Baby Blanket

Step 3

Lay the smaller inside square on top of the larger back square RST (right sides together). Start with the top. Line up the raw edges, pin the centers and continue pinning along the edge from the center out. Sew a ¼" seam from the center out, stopping ¼" before the small square’s corner. Backstitch at the end. Repeat for the other side of the seam starting in the middle. Next, repeat the process of sewing from center out on the bottom edge, lining up the center pins and raw edges. Repeat again on one side.


The larger square will “bunch” behind the smaller square and form bunny ears at the corners.


For the last side, leave a 5" opening in the middle, backstitching on both sides of the opening.
