Charm School Corrections


Some of the diagrams neglect to take into account the 1/4'' seam allowance--they show what a "finished" block would look like instead of "unfinished." With Steps 6, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, and 20, just keep in mind that eventually it will be brought in 1/4'' around the perimeter once it is sewn into the quilt.

Under "Put it Together," the instructions say to sew the units into columns (Step #3).

It is actually easier to sew the units into rows. However, you will notice that the 3rd & 4th rows share a vertical rectangle at the ends... Sew everything in between them into rows, sew the 3rd/4th row together, then add the vertical rectangles to the outsides of these rows and continue.

Under the heading "HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES," Step 1 should say to sew 1/4'' away from the marked line, cut along the marked line, and press. (The adjacent diagram is correct.)
