I have just finished the first appliqued square and I just love it!
When placing the nose I realised that there was an error in the instructions. There is only 3 of this type of Snowman in the quilt and in the picture the nose goes to the right, not the left, otherwise it didn't curl "up" right.. I checked that I had traced the pattern correctly and it did not say to reverse the tracing on this Snowman.
I also came across another error in the cutting out of the 6.5" squares... it was one short. Again I recounted what I did and what the pattern said. I counted the squares on the pattern and it was one short.
Very MINOR errors which shows that the "author" is only human.
I use to proof read patterns for a friend and I know how easy it is to miss something. You actually "know" what it is meant to say, and sometimes you read what should be there.. when it isn't.
I found the safest way of proof reading a pattern was actually making the quilt as you read it.
Must get back to another square.
Until next post...
