I proof, I edit, I re-read and still…something always slips by. This time it was the cutting chart on p4. The measurements for cutting were a little snug on a few pieces. I’m sorry for any trouble this has caused anyone.
My best guess as to what went wrong is that I used the measurements I always used for the rough draft paper piecing templates without the seam allowances marked. When the seam allowances are marked on the final template you get this crazy long point sticking out on the corners that I didn’t account for.
The good news is that this chart isn’t key to making the quilt work. It’s just the approximate cutting instructions for the airplane block background fabrics. I almost didn’t even include it but decided to because if you like to chain piece you can make all 11 blocks really quickly once you’ve cut the background to the approximate sizes. You can just ignore it completely and cut your pieces to size as you go the way you normally do for paper piecing and it will go together perfect.
Thankfully I haven’t distributed a crazy number yet, so I’m going to try and track everyone down to give them the edit. I’m also planning to order stickers with the correct chart to stick over the old one in the pattern. If you got the pattern from me and need the sticker, please let me know. It may be a few weeks before I have them in my hands but I’ll be sure to mail them out as soon as I do.
If you’ve gotten to the pieced appliqué instructions and need something more visual, hang tight. A quick tutorial is on my todo list for January.
Again, I’m sorry if this caused any trouble. Thank you for supporting me and my business!
