    I found a new quilt shop near my work today...woohoo...I bought the x-block template and then went on the site http://patriciapepe.com/oops.html - lots of corrections for a bunch of patterns that were sold. I can't wait to try out my new template!

    I am not sure if I would be concerned about a designer with so many mistakes or pleased to see that they admit to them. I was not expecting such a long list. I have one of their patterns that was published in a magazine a while back.

    I was pretty shocked to see the error and how many there were...I don't think I will be buying any of the patterns. I can't wait to try the template though.

    So many have mistakes it gives me the impression of the patterns were rushed to be printed and marketed with only the thought of selling while the iron was hot and worry about the mistakes after the products was sold.

    I paid 13.95 for the 6 1/2 inch x block template at a local quilt shop...I just saw it on a online quilt website for 27.75...talk about a mark up...

    The latest printing of her book has all the errors cleaned up.

    Oh, I wasn't thinking of the individual patterns. Sorry. I should read a little better.

    Wow!! That is quite a difference, I hope the $27.75 at least had free shipping!!

    I have this on my wish list, please share how you like it once you get to play with it!
