Quilters Companion

Issue 6
Blue Grotto, page 68.
Diagram 12 is incorrect. For correct placement of the cream/blue square and the cream/black square, align A to W, B to Y, D to Z and C to X.
Baskets-a-plenty, page 37.
The 1in strips for Border 2 and those used in Section 2 and 3, should be cut 11/2in with a finished size 1in

Issue 7
Baby Elephant Walk, page 94.
The squares for the Nine-patch blocks should be cut 21/2in, not 31/2in as published. The squares for the Tile block should be 21/2in, not 31/2in, and the squares for the Tile blocks to make triangle-squares should be 27/8in not 3 7/8in.

Issue 10
Hexagon Nine-patch, page 60.
The diagram and instructions do not match. Instead of sewing the strips to make the block in three vertical columns as instructed (eg. strip set 2A to the LEFT of Strip Set 1 and strip set 2B to the RIGHT of Strip Set 1), readers should sew the block in rows. Put the piece cut from Strip Set 1 so that it runs HORIZONTALLY. Sew the strip cut from strip set 2A to the BOTTOM of it, and the strip cut from Strip Set 2B to the TOP of it. In this manner, the block will match the diagram.

Issue 12
Rambling Rose, page 89.
From the green rose print fabric, cut:
8 strips, 3 1/4in x width of fabric. Cross cut to yield 40 rectangles, 3 1/4in x 9in for the sashing.

Quilts for Kids #1
Touchy Quilt.
The green strips should be cut 141/2in (35.5cm), not 14in, and the orange strips should be cut 281/2in (69.5cm), not 28in.

Issue 13
The quilt layout diagram for 'Oh Starry Night' by Rachel Ottley on page 59 is in error. Please refer to the quilt photograph on page 56 to layout the rows correctly when assembling the quilt.

Issue 16
A quilt was pictured in  News Patch and attributed to Patty Harants. The quilt is actually a miniature replica of the Rebecca Kohler quilt and was made by Judy Day. The confusion came from the fact that both Judy’s and Patty’s quilts were displayed at the same exhibition. Our apologies Judy.

Issue 18
The 'Marmees Sunday Cloth' quilt as featured in the Make a Quilt with Pam Holland DVD is missing the Churn Dash Block pattern. Click on the link to access the pattern and download to print.

Issue 25

FRESHCA by Michelle Marvig:

From each of the four light-value fabrics, cut: 1 strip, 5#/8in (not 5in as published) x width of fabric and cross cut 8, 5#/8in squares (a total of 32 squares for Pinwheel block backgrounds)

Issue 26
The contact number for Quilter's World - published on page 54 - is incorrect. To contact Nettie the correct number is (07) 4632 4887 

Issue 49
Unfortunately an incorrect website has been listed on the Designer Diva competition entry form. Please note that the Husqvarna Viking website is www.husqvarnaviking.com/au

Our sincere apologies for this error.

The price should read $48 for the kit, not $43 as advertised.

Apologies to Sylvia Bring; on page 135 we published her names as Sylvia Hughes. Along with a team of local townfolk Sylvia was the instigator and main craftsperson of the Grenfell History Quilter Curtain.

Issue 8.3
Unfortunately, sometimes an error can slip through and, alas, we missed printing the templates required for the Pomegranate Panache quilt created by Michelle Marvig in Homespun Vol 8 No 3. Although readers can still create the quilt by purchasing the specialty rulers from Michelle, readers were given the option of making their own templates in our instructions. We apologise that the templates were missed when checking our pattern sheets. The templates can be found here. Alternatively, telephone Sarah Tonkin on (02) 9887 0364 or email your postal details to stonkin@universalmagazines.com.au and she will mail you a hard copy.

Issue 8.8
The Silly Season Begins Part Two
To all of you who are looking for the two small templates from Block 2 of The Silly Season Begins - Part Two, yes, they were accidentally left off the pattern sheet so please accept our apologies! These were the star in the righthand corner and the bird shape atop the tree. Please print them out (making sure your printer setting is set to "no scaling" or the equivalent) here and here. Also in the instructions for Part Two of The Silly Season Begins quilt, step 16 says to cut the chook strip in four rectangles each 6in long. This should actually be 6 1/2 in long.

Issue 8.9

Wisteria Girls
Apologies to those of you who created the Wisteria Girls quilt from Homespun Vol 8 No 9. Please note that the last sentence in step 27 should read "Repeat with a total of five of the dark green squares", not all of the remaining dark green squares.

Issue 8.11
A Woman's Glam Bag
A technical hiccup has meant that the stitchery and appliqué designs for A Woman's Glam Bag published in Homespun Vol 8 No 11 were printed on the pattern sheet larger than they should have been (including the appliquéd heart). To overcome this error, copy the designs on a photocopier set at 85%. Alternatively, telephone Editor Bianca Tzatzagos on (02) 9887 0332 or email your postal details to btzatzagos@universalmagazines.com.au and she will mail you a copy of the designs at the correct size. For those of you who have completed your stitchery and/or appliqué at the larger size, we have created an alternate set of instructions here so that you are still able to make the bag.

Issue 9.1
Crossword Solution
Click here for the solution to the crossword published in Homespun Vol 9 NO 1 compiled by Sarah Martin.

However, if you are working on this project, you can obtain a copy of the corrections here. Alternatively, telephone Sarah Tonkin on (02) 9887 0364 or email your postal details to stonkin@universalmagazines.com.au and she will mail you a copy of the corrections.

Issue 10.2
Unfortunately, a piece was left off the pattern sheet for Lyria’s Day Out and we apologise for the inconvenience. The missing piece is the collar for the day bag and you can download it by clicking on the link here. Alternatively, telephone Sarah Tonkin on (02) 9887 0364 or email your postal details to stonkin@universalmagazines.com.au and she will mail you a copy of the pattern.

Breast of Friends Block 5 - Issue 10.3
We have accidentally left the 'Shoe Sale' design for Anni Downs' Breast of Friends block off the pattern sheet for Homespun Vol 10 No 3. You can obtain a copy of the design here. Alternatively, telephone Sarah Tonkin on (02) 9887 0364 or email your postal details to stonkin@universalmagazines.com.au and she will mail you a hard copy.

Breast Of Friends
We have received a lot of requests for a diagram showing the placement of blocks in the finished Breast of Friends Mystery Block of the Month quilt. You can download it here.

Breast Of Friends Block 8 - Issue 10.5
Under Assembly, Step 14 should read;
14. Join the assorted rectangular scraps cut in step 3 together end to end (and trim them as necessary) to make four strips 14½in long.
Under Assembly, Step 16 should read;
16. Sew the 2in pink print squares to each end of the remaining 14½in strips. Sew these strips to the top and bottm edges of the appliquéd block, matching seams. Press seams outwards. Your block should measure 17½in  square from raw edge to raw edge.

Breast Of Friends Final Assembly - Issue 10.9 
Under Block 3, step 9 should read:
Cut four squares, 3in.
Under Block 4, the cutting instructions for steps 12 to 15 are incorrect. Please cut your frame strips, 1¾in wide, not 2in wide as shown in the magazine. Your block needs to measure 12½in square from raw edge to raw edge after the framing strips have been added.  

Issue 10.6 and 10.10
Unfortunately we have become aware that the colour key used for the Coffee Break project in Homespun 10.6 and the Second Helping project in Homespun 10.10 is incorrect. If you are working on this project, you can obtain a copy of the correct colour key here. Alternatively, telephone Katie Krosby on (02) 9887 0364 or email your postal details to kkrosby@universalmagazines.com.au and she will mail you a copy of the colour key. Our sincere apologies.

Issue 11.1 Village Square Quilt
Variable Star/ Churn Dash complex block - corrections to cutting instructions (steps 54 and 56).
Step 54: The four GG squares should be 2 1/2in, not 2 1/8in as published.
Step 56: The MM rectangles should be cut 1 1/4in x 8 1/2in, not 1 3/4in x 8 1/2in as published.

Issue 11.1 Life Is a Celebration Materials List
Unfortunately we have become aware of some confusion regarding the list of materials for the Life Is A Celebration BOM. To clarify - the amount of each fabric listed in our Materials list in Homespun Vol 11 No 1 is sufficient for the block backgrounds and borders, the sashings between the blocks as the quilt top is assembled and all the borders. There is also some surplus of fabrics that could be used for many of the applique shapes - but when drafting the instructions and developing the Materials list, we did not map the size of each and every applique shape and allow sufficient fabric for all of them. That's why the Materials list includes "Assorted scraps from your stash to tone with the French Hatbox fabrics (applique)". The fact that a designer used a French Hatbox fabric for an applique shape doesn't mean that readers are expected to use it, so we have not for catered for this in the material list. 

Issue 11.2
The phone no for Kathryn O’Beirne of Our Shabby Cottage is incorrect. You can contact her on (03) 5309 2512. Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Issue 11.4 
Unfortunately we have become aware that an error has slipped through on the instructions for Life Is A Celebration - Nature. Please note that step 1 should read:
1. From the white tone-on-tone spot print fabric, cut:
One rectangle, 13½ x 17½in. Our sincere apologies that this error appeared in print.

Issue 11.5
Unfortunately an error slipped through for the phone number to contact Sarah Pumphrey and Elizabeth Gibson of The Farm Studio. If you wish to ring the ladies, please phone +64 3 540 3889. Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Issue 11.5 Grape Sorbet Smock
Unfortunately we have become aware that an error slipped through on the instructions for the Grape Sorbet Smock. Please note that the first sentence in step 1 should read:

1. Using 4.00mm (UK No 8; US No 6) needles and CC, cast on 100 (108, 124, 140, 148, 156, 164) st/s.

The Homespun team extends our sincere apologies not only to our readers but also to Leonie Ball of Wool Baa, the designer of this gorgeous garment, for this error.

Issue 11.7 All Spruced Up quilt
In the Quilt Assembly Diagram on page 24 three pieced squares have been omitted from the top edge of Block 5. Please see revised diagram here.

Issue 11.8
We have had some enquiries in relation to the scallop template required for the Life Is A Celebration – Pets block. This template is the same scallop template that appeared with the Life Is A Celebration – Family block on Homespun’s 11.3 pattern sheet. If you are missing this issue and require the scallop template to complete your Pets block in 11.8, you can download the template here.

Issue 11.11
Unfortunately we have become aware that an error has slipped through on the instructions for Summer Garden. Please note that step 4 should read:

4. From the multicoloured zigzag print fabric, cut:
Two strips, 3 x 21in (Border 2).

Our sincere apologies that this error appeared in print.

Issue 12.5 and 12.6
Unfortunately an incorrect website has been listed on the Designer Diva competition entry form. Please note that the Husqvarna Viking website is www.husqvarnaviking.com/au

Our sincere apologies for this error.

Issue 12.5
Unfortunately an error has slipped through in the instructions for Mini Miss Milly. The instructions for the arms and legs should read:

18. Using MC, cast on 7 st/s. St st 4 rows.
19. K2tog, K3, K2tog — 5 st/s.
20. P2tog, P1, P2tog — 3 st/s.
21. Knit.
22. Inc, P1, inc — 5 st/s.
23. Inc, K3, inc — 7 st/s.
24. St st 4 rows.
25. Cast off.
 

We extend our sincere apologies to our readers for this error.

Issue 12.6
Unfortunately the hexagon and half-hexagon templates for the Forever Blue pincushion project were left off the pattern sheet. To download them, click here and make sure to set page scaling to "none" to ensure they print at the correct size. The side edges should measure 2in.

Our sincere apologies for this omission.

Issue 12.7
On the Contents page, we incorrectly attributed the Santa Paws project to Meredith Harmer instead of Meredith Brooks.
Our sincere apologies go to both designers for this unfortunate error.

An incorrect fabric amount was listed for the I Believe project. You need 20cm (1/4yd) turquoise geometric print fabric (romper suit and hat), not 10cm (1/8yd) as listed.
Our sincere apologies for this error.

Unfortunately, the circular pattern for the base of the Cellarbration wine bags was omitted from the pattern sheet. We sincerely apologise for this error. You can download the pattern here.

Recent Lapses

We apologise very sincerely: two instruction errors slipped through and have been published in recent issues:

Issue 13.4 What A Hoot

* Each of the end panels for the sewing-machine cover is made from five C strips, not four. That means that in step 5, you need to choose 10 strips (not eight). Trim them to 2 1/2 x 13in. Then, in step 13, sew them together in two groups of five (not four).

Issue 13.5 Catch Of The Day

* Step 9 should have read: Row 23: K6 (2, 2, 7, 4, 4) *P2, C3B, P2, K6* rep to last 0 (2, 2, 7, 4, 4) sts, P0 (2, 2, 7, 4, 4).

* Step 11 should begin: Rows 25–32:

 

We also must apologise for some minor errors on the pattern sheets included in the printed issues of Homespun Vol 13 No 6. (The patterns for the digital version of the magazine, available from www.zinio.com, were not affected and are accurate.) Please note the following:

A Trip To Remember – Craft Tote

There are two patterns marked as the Lid Side Panel. The label on the larger of the two patterns (printed on top of the Grand Adventure ‘Shorts Back’ pattern) should have been labelled ‘Lid centre panel’ and the markings at the top and bottom of this pattern should say Handle placement.
A new template can be found here.

Sitting Pretty

The labels for the stitchery patterns have been marked incorrectly. This won’t impact your finished project but the patterns for the labels will not match the photographs in the magazine.
You can find the four correct templates here: Template 1, Template 2, Template 3 and Template 4.

Please accept our apologies for the dismay and wasted time these errors may have caused you. Even if you haven’t begun one of these projects, mark your copy of the magazines with the corrections just in case you tackle them at a later date.

Issue 13.6

Unfortunately an error has slipped through in the cutting guide of the Flower Power dress. The cutting guide for the skirt trim should have been:

5 x 60cm (2 x 23 5/8in) (size 1)
5 x 65cm (2 x 25 5/8in) (size 2)
5 x 68cm (2 x 26 3/4in) (size 3)
5 x 72cm (2 x 28 3/4in) (size 4)
5 x 77cm (2 x 30 3/8in) (size 5)
5 x 80cm (2 x 31 1/2in) (size 6)

Our apologies for this error.

Issue 13.9

Unfortunately the Bacchus Marsh Friendship Quilters' Biennial Quilt Show scheduled for September 29-30 has been cancelled.
Some of the quilts will be displayed at other events scheduled for that weekend, the Bacchus Marsh Embroiderers Exhibition at The Laurels, 229 Main Street, Bacchus Marsh Vic, and the ‘Childhood Days’ Exhibition  at the Blacksmith’s Cottage, 100 Main Street, Bacchus Marsh Vic. 

Issue 13.9 Born To Shop purses by Bronwyn Hayes

Unfortunately for the Born To Shop purses designed by Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly, have the wrong colour DMC thread listed for the face, nose, neck and shoulders of all women. The thread used should be DMC Embroidery Floss 3779, Ultra Very Light Terracotta. Sincere apologies for any problems this may have caused.

Issue 13.10 My ‘Tree House’ Adventures

2013 Quilters Diary Index

The index for the 2013 Quilters Diary featuring projects from Homespun and Quilters Companion magazines, can be found above listed under the Quilters Companion corrections. Our sincere apologies for any confusion this may have caused.


Issue 14.1 A Patriotic Picnic

Two errors were published in our instructions, for which we apologise. Steps 5, 12 and 14 are affected.

Step 5: Cut the strip 3in across the width of the blue fabric, not 4in.

Step 12. Continue in this manner, working across the length of the foundation piecing guide, adding patches in numerical order. Repeat to make four quadrants in the same manner, USING TWO OF THE 3 X 14IN BLUE STRIPS FOR POSITION 8 ON TWO QUADRANTS.

Step 14. Referring to the photograph as a guide, sew two quadrants right sides together; check that the strips are facing the right direction. Repeat for the remaining two quadrants. TRIM THE REMAINING 3 X 14IN STRIP OF BLUE FABRIC TO 2½ X 14IN. SEW IT BETWEEN THE LEFT AND RIGHT HALVES OF THE UNION JACK BLOCK AS YOU JOIN THE QUADRANTS TOGETHER.

 
Issue 14.2

Unfortunately the wrong business details for Periwinkle Patchwork were listed in the Stockists & Contacts list. The correct details are:

Periwinkle Patchwork
Shop 2, Bayside City Plaza, 24-36 Fairy Street, Warrnambool, Vic 3280. Ph: 5560 5522, email: periwinklepatchwork@bigpond.com, website: www.periwinklepatchwork.com.au, blog: www.periwinklepatchwork.typepad.com

Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

 

Issue 14.10 October 2013

The More it Snows

Unfortunately, a fraction was accidentally deleted from the cutting instructions. Step 9 on page 49 should say:

From the assorted blue and turquoise fabrics, cut:

  • 64 squares, 3 3/8in (not 3in).

Our most sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

 

Issue 14.12 December 2013

 

It’s Time for Christmas

Some of the cutting instructions for the ‘filler blocks’ were incorrect.

The correct number of patches to cut are:

D = 8

C = 22

E = 4

The Quilt Assembly Diagram is correct, so refer to it as you cut.

We apologise for our error.
