Below is a list of the corrections that a few of our readers have brought to our attention so far. We apologize for these problems, but they are a good way for you to check to see if you are able to catch them. The Townsquare project on page 63 is going to be turned into a mid-term exam, giving you a chance to see if you can work out the correct answers. We have had several students tell us they thought this is how we set it up. We wish we had of thought of that, as it is a good check on your progress for making your own recipes.
Please email us with any questions you may have about these or other things in the book.
Corrections for Quilt Academy Volume 1
Page 12 In the note box, it should be 112, not 12
Page 41 Harriet's Triple Rail Fence Project:
Make sure you read after the * on the bottom of
the page, starting with "* To determine how many strip sets.... "
The yardage is not wrong, but if you just cut the number of strips we tell you to cut it
will seem that way...
Page 64 2nd paragraph from bottom in first column
Four four-patch units per block = 2 segments for each unit = 8 segments. Each segment is a 1 ½" cut. There are 8 blocks and 8 segments each = 64 units total. Each 42" strip yields 28 units 1 ½" wide. 64 ÷ 28 = 2.28 strips needed, rounded up to 3 strips.
6 strips 1 ½" wide dark green
3 strips 1 ½" …….
3 strips 1 ½" ……..
Page 65 center column- #5
Make two stacks of 16
center column - #8
Make 32 of these……
Page 81 - this is fairly obvious, but the 18" side of a fat quarter is the lengthwise grain and the 22" side is the crosswise grain
Page 87 - we have been told that there are a few confusing things here. After step 2, we meant you need a total of 36 segments for rows 1, 2, 4, and 5 - not 36 for each.
Rows 2 and 4 - there is no need for white strips
Under Making Block A - For Row 3, you need 1 strip blue, 2 strips pink and 2 strips white.
