2009 BOM Cutting Error 25 Jan 2009 08:02 #31392

Well, I seem to have a few HST left...I think I cut too many ..like double..I think I lost count when cutting them out..I hope I can use the white back ground color in one of the other blocks..or just will add them to my bits and pieces collection. Other than that, everything worked out pretty good..patiently waiting for the next block to be posted.

Hi everyone,

I am a very keen novice from the uk and am quite new to the quilting world, have not attended any tought courses so am learning as i go along so please, forgive me if my question seems a little obvious.

Do you need to secure the end threads when paper peicing , i have concerns that you don't seen to get much cross over on seams to secure the stitches ?



:?

If the stiches are small enough that the paper is easy to remove they will be fine, but if it makes you feel better, you might want to backstitch the first few. No quilt police here, and rest assured that you are not the only one with questions!! Glad to have you join us!

That is so funny... 08 Jan 2009 08:57 #30782

I looked at the show and tell, and thought why didn't they catch it? I have tried many methods of HST's and when I was cutting I thought about it, then I said to myself there aren't that many, suck it up. It actually helped me to stay focused and be precise. Especially since I was in a real big hurry to see the finished block. :D

GOOD CATCH!! Sue is out of town for a few days, but when she gets back I'll point it out to her and get the PDF files updated for anyone who hasn't downloaded them yet. THANKS!!

BTW...if you look at how I did my HSTs you will see why I missed this when I was "testing" the pattern!! :)

Hanne-Grete, it turns out that this is was a false alarm! The pattern is correct.

Sue and I have both been over the instructions numerous times, and I don't think there are any errors, but if any do crop up, we hope you will let us know and we will definitely make any changes necessary to the PDF files and will make every effort to let everyone know about it.

As cutting errors appears...can you correct the PDF-file or put up a correction under the BOM page? I do not know if a lot of people comes here to check out if their cutting is ok :shock: ..And it will be greate to have a download of the correction in connection with the BOM page for all of us that has not started yet.

The cutting directions worked perfectly for me, too. I don't have everything together yet, but I'm over halfway through and have exactly the right number of pieces. I'm trying so hard not to rush! I have a bad tendency to work too fast because I'm so anxious to see my results! :wink:
