An Error in " A Boy and a Girl" quilt pattern, please note.

Hello Everybody,

Thank you to Nancy M for alerting us to the mistake on page 1 in the instruction sheet of the pattern " Boy and a girl, an album"
At the bottom of the page 1: it should say:
For the " Boy and Girl" block, cut 4 bias strips 18" x 7/8" for the ribbon joining the flowers and use the "9mm" Clover gadget to iron the bias stems. The finished width of the strip is 3/8" after ironing with the Clover bias maker.

My senile brain wrote 18" x 3/8" !!! this is of course totally incorrect.
My apologies to everybody, if you know someone who is doing this quilt please pass on the message.
I hope everyone gets to read this post.

Also keep an eye out in Liza's Face Book ( I don't have FB, yet, I need someone to walk me through it) for our Glorious Hexagon Along starting in January 2016. It is done in conjunction with Paper Pieces ( see their website) and Katja Marek's book " The New Hexagon". It will be fun to do. Liza and I have done a hexie quilt each using the different hexagon shapes in Katja's book and Kaffe Collective fabrics. Amazing how many interesting hexagons you can get using 3 yards of fabric like " Feathers" - it's unreal. My 3 yards was totally demolished, didn't leave much scrap at all, it all went into the quilt. Liza will tell you how to cut this 3 yards, and the process of preparation.

So long, please pass on this error message to other people, not sure how many people are reading the blog these days. Many thanks and my sincere apologies. Cheers, Kim


  1. Thanks Kim, I'll spread the news on my blog and also on my Facebook groups.

  2. Thank you Janet, gave me a fright that error! K

  3. Might you post a link to Liza's FB page for the hexie quilt along? I've searched FB and can only find the Millefiori QAL that is ending that was run by Katja herself. Thank you

  4. Hi Marji,
    It might not be up yet. If you go to Paper Pieces website, the hexagon along is already advertised as" coming soon" it has both our quilts on it. You might also email Liza and ask her about it. Liza said the hex along is due to start on 1st January 2016, but check with her anyway. Hope that helps, k

  6. Thanks so much for this information! I'm not a user of Facebook but I really appreciate your blog and I hope you will continue to post. I know a lot of quilters have left their blogs and gone on to other things like Facebook but I also don't have a clue how to use it and I worry about using it. Anyway, LOVE your blog and I really appreciate this information about the error.
