    Beetle Boy Pattern

    If anyone has the "Beetle Boy" pattern by Clothworks and hasn't used it yet, BEWARE. Numerous errors in the cutting instructions. I had bought a kit quite a while back and just started it. What a nightmare.

    I have contacted her and she is only the fabric designer. I have since contacted Clothworks, but no response.

    They sure have a great choice of free patterns on their site. It does show on that pattern that it has been tested, is the pattern you have exactly as the one on the site? Sometimes they do an updated version.

    Thanks Thimblebug6000 but no, the errors are still there! Hopefully I will get their attention with my e-mail so no one else encounters this problem. I agree, they have a lot of free cute patterns that I plan on adapting for charity Quilts for Kids.

    It is so aggravating when the patterns contain errors! I just finished one that was published in a magazine that had an error that cost me 2 yards of fabric - at $11.00 per yard it was costly. Now I know enough to check the websites to see if there are corrections to anything BEFORE I start cutting.
