Quilt Pattern Mistakes in Instructions

Quilts in the Barn wrote a long posting about mistakes printed in her quilt pattern. A magazine printed the wrong cutting measurements and the posting she wrote is a good lesson to everyone who makes quilts. Always cut only for one block to test the pattern for accuracy! It's also a good idea to make one block to see how you like the colors/fabric that you chose too before cutting out all the pieces for an entire quilt.

  2. I learned this after trying to teach a group of beginners to make what I thought was a fairly simple quilt from a magazine. The measurements to cut were wrong and I could not figure out how to fix them. I contacted the magazine but they never responded. I now try every block first before I move forward.
