Land of the Free..Home of the Brave Correction


I am so sorry for all the errors in the LIBERTY GATHERINGS Pattern….We are beside ourselves and can only blame it on the crunch that happens before market…I stitched the 16 applique blocks and I should have personally proofed the pieced block directions, so my fault for not checking them as we published this pattern under Primitive Gatherings…… going forward we will defiantly be doing things different on a collaboration pattern… We thank everyone who has let us know of the errors they found.

03 18 17 Cutting Chart Liberty Gatherings   This is a cutting chart for the whole quilt…Val who is teaching this as a BOM went through the pattern and listed the fabrics and the cutting amounts and found the errors…a little to late but thank you Val for doing this extra work to help everyone…

03 18 17 Piecing Cutting Corrections Liberty GatheringsThese are Val’s corrections she has found…I am adding this one as well as it might contain some we didn’t have already…

Liberty Gatherings CorrectionsCorrections which may already be in Val’s corrections…width of the wool stems and we didn’t like how one of the stitched words looks so we gave you a new one with better spacing….









Snowflake Garden…We have printed 100 patterns with this error…please adjust your pattern

From each blue fabric cut 5- 3 3/8″ squares- you will need 45 total
From each blue fabric cut 14 3″ squares- you will need 132
from each of the 6 light fabrics cut 11- 3 3/8″ squares- you will need 62 total…
so sorry for this inconvenience…

Correction to Itty Bitty Primitive Pinwheels Supplies

correction to underground railroad pattern

Primitive Bride– The pattern should read 3 1/2 yds Primitive Muslin-blocks and borders-by Moda Fabrics-1040-27.  We have changed our in stock patterns.  If you have purchased a kit before October 31 2012, your kit only has the 2 1/2 yds in it.  You will need 1 more yard.  We did not charge for the extra yard in the kit, but if you contact us we will get you the additional yard, provided you can send us proof of purchase- picture of your kit would be fine or something like that.

    I purchased a kit for the Christmas Time Table mat and when sorting through, I find No Black Homespun. This is listed in the required items, but above the “Not included” list. O therefore assume that this is an oversite. The phone number included on the pattern is “not a working number”

    I just cut my sashing for the Summer Holidays quilt in your Summer Gatherings book. Unfortunately I believe that the cutting directions are wrong. My blocks are 14.5 inches and I think that is correct, your book says they are 13.5 and it tells us to cut sashing 5 x 14 inches – 1/2 inch too short! 😦 Is it me???

    Hi Lisa,
    I recently purchased your pattern ” A Little Northwind” and in the cutting directions you have us cutting 2″ strips.
    The supply list calls for 1″ finished size triangle thangles, but that leaves 1/4 ” overhang on either side of the thangles strip. Should it have read 2″ finished size?

    Please let me know

    Maybe I am doing something wrong but the Pinwheel Garden pattern calls for 1 1/2″ finished triangles on a roll. I purchased that size but it is way too big for the 5″ squares I bought at your shop. Is the thangle size correct or am I doing something wrong?

    Love everything you have.

    • January 2, 2012 at 9:20 pm

      if you look closely at the picturei used 1-1/2″ Triangles on a roll. We though we had all of the patterns corrected..but that is what is wrong…I assumed any of the triangle papers would work, but the Thangles are too long. So you need to get the Triangles on a roll and cut them like i did on the diagram. I have changed it to say you need both kinds of papers…sorry you purchased one of the old ones and that this happened. Lisa

    Hi Lisa,
    I recently purchased Summer Gatherings and a kit for the blue bird table runner. Are the birds supposed to be blue? There was no blue wool in the kit and on the side bar in the book, there is no listing for any blue (it is also the onlly pattern with wool that didn’t list what the colors were used for). I can certainly fill it in on my own but was wondering if that was intentional.

    • March 2, 2013 at 8:00 am

      Yes, but it is a drab blue… It shows much brighter in the photo…count your pieces of wool and see if you have an extra… If you are missing it we surely can send you one…
      Please call the shop if we need to get one out to you…
      All I can say about the threads is that carole wrote/stitched that pattern and maybe forgot to include them???

    In Lancaster, PA, at the APQS Quilt show, I purchased the Nine-Patch Gatherings book and a pack of 3 1/2″ light and dark repro fabric (100 prints). I was told that the fabric was enough to make 5 of the patterns in the book, but I didn’t write down which five. Can you please let me know which five patterns?

    I’m confused. The snowflake garden pattern says that the hst units should finish at 3-1/2″. How can that be if we start out with 3-3/8″ squares? Also shouldn’t the hst unit finish at 3″ to match the other 3″ cut whole squares. Help!

    Please let me know if you’re looking for a author for your site. You have some really good articles and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love

    I purchased the Primitive Gatherings Mini Alphabet Quilt I am doing some wording on a quilt and have discovered two of the alphabet patterns to have a mis measured piece in the pattern. I didn’t notice anyone catching errors in Corrections To Our Patterns. Patterns F and N are incorrect I think. Please double check me, and in the meantime I will continue make words. Any possibility of punctuation and numbers in a pattern?

  22. March 25, 2014 at 2:24 pm

    It’s amazing to visit this web page and reading the views
    of all mates on the topic of this paragraph, while I am also zealous of getting knowledge.

  23. September 7, 2014 at 3:06 pm

    i am putting “Be the good” blocks together..
    The borders instructions say to cut 2 1/2″. the pic says 3″. 3″ is correct because i will have to cut down my vase or really pay attention to placement to get it to fit in the border.

    Hi Lisa ! I have a question about the “Garden walk table mat” (from the book “Summer Gatherings) : is it a perfect circle ? I have drawn the scalloped pattern on fusible web, but it’s not round. There’s a difference of about 1 inch (a little less) between the two borders of the pattern. Did I make something wrong ? Is there a correction somewhere ?
    With kind regards,
    Anne – Tempus fugit, France

    • January 11, 2015 at 7:04 am

      Anne.. I have not ever heard of this one…mine looks round, but i dusbt get out the measuring taoe to check it… I am not by the warrhouse so i can check on it.. But draw two intersecting center lines through the mat then trace one set of the four scallops 4 tiimes and see if that helps.. , but like i said. Itcould be slightly off but i didnt notice it in oursvif it is… But we just made a new one for the california store and theblafy didnt say/notice anything off… Will get back tovuou on monday uf you gave not soulved it by then

    Hi Lisa, I haven’t seen it listed but I think the block of the month for the Primitive Garden (for the month of January) the one that goes on the left hand side, is not to be reversed. Looking at the picture, I reversed the pattern for the other blocks. This one seems to already be reversed.

    Hi. I am working on the homestead quilt. On B. It states 112 single
    HST — 56 paper HST = 28 four patches. Then the number of 4 patches
    B=2. HH=10 and OO= 3. That only totals 15 four patches
    Where do the other 13 HST go?

    I just purchased your pattern, “A Penny Gathering”, at Road to California yesterday. On the outside it says the quilt finishes at 27″ x 27″; on the inside front cover it says the finished quilt is 72′” x 72″! After doing some quick math, I assume the latter dimension is a typo? Looking forward to starting this project. Are there any significant errors in this pattern that I should be aware of?

    • January 22, 2017 at 8:55 pm

      Yes… it is a typo.. it is 27×27… we will get it changed and thank you for letting Ilya know… there are no know errors in this pattern… I’ve seen many of them done and no one has said anything

    Lisa. My first time using your patterns and working on Fresh Cut Daisies. Because I am new to this, I don’t know how may strands of floss is needed as I work on this. I used one strand for the blanket stitch but am not sure how many strands to use on the jar lid and words. Help!

    Your pattern instructions included a look at your blog for any corrections. Can I assume that the pattern entitled Crop Circles dated 2016 has no corrections?

  32. February 22, 2017 at 7:24 am

    I am currently working on Colfax County, I purchased the pattern quite awhile ago at your booth at a show but I didn’t see a correction listed in this section of your website so I thought I would mention that the middle layout picture for the star is wrong (top right unit is turned incorrectly)–This is on the page that begins with “making the 24 star blocks”. It is correct in the lower picture and in the photo. Threw me off but caught it before I did any sewing together. It is a beauty of a pattern and I am excited to be done with prep and to be getting ready to sew stars, thanks for your pattern!

    I am trying to work on kits for the Patriot Pattern. The cutting instructions are different for the dark vs the light and I cannot figure out why. The 13 reds should be the same for the dark and light correct? The “light” on the dark version should be the same cutting and requirements as the “blue” on the light version? But it is not listed that way. Am I missing something or is the pattern wrong? It seems to me like the light version may be the correct requirements and cutting. Thank you!

    Hello! I am starting my Daurmont quilt and have received my first two block kits. Looking at the paper pattern and the circles, “D” measures 2″; “E” measures 1″, and pattern “F” measures 5/8″. The instructions, however, indicate to “cut 9 circles of shape E and F… and the example states: Trace 9 – 3/4″ circles onto a 3″ x 3″ fusible web…Repeat for the larger circles using a 4″ x 4″ fusible and the 1 1/8” circle. Is the drawn pattern incorrect or the written instructions? What size should these circles be? I’ve stopped everything until I receive a response. I don’t see anything listed under your pattern corrections. Thank you.

    • March 6, 2017 at 6:04 am

      Hi Janet…I’m so sorry we have not found this error yet…I do not have access to the pattern here…but I would trace the size they physically are on the the drawn pattern/layout…that will be the correct size, but really either size will work, so nothing will be detrimental to the outcome…I don’t know where this got changed, maybe when the graphic designer cleaned up my drawing???…I will list this correction when I get into the office and am able to check it out..thank you for letting us know of this issue

  35. March 16, 2017 at 8:05 pm

    Hello Lisa, I cut out my center block of liberty gatherings after checking pattern corrections on store website and didn’t see any corrections, so proceeded with what was written. Now trying to sew them together I think some of the cutting dimensions are incorrect. I checked your blog and realized there were some corrections. Please check the center tan square dimensions for H – 4 1/2 and red F 51/4 cut diagonal do not seem correct. The red is way too large for the center square. Sorry you are having issues with the pattern, the quilt is beautiful.

    Hi Lisa! I am working on my Daurmont quilt and I’m wondering why you choose to use the recommended Steam a Seam 2. I realize there are several options, from using an iron on stabilizer to using nothing at all. Is it just to help the wool pieces adhere for stitching? Does it make a hanging quilt hang better? Does it extend the life of the quilt? I think using a stabilizer makes it difficult to stitch through, and I’m debating whether I like the look of the wool once it’s been ironed because it loses it’s dimensional qualities; it’s flat. I’ve done wool appliqué both ways; I’m just wondering why you use it. Thank you!
