I raised this question on another board, and would like to get your input on this subject also.
I am sure many of us have found mistakes in a pattern or kit when we are deep in the middle of a quilt. What are your experiences and how did you work around it? Here is mine.
I am enrolled in a BOM at an LQS called Flower Pots by Cindy Lammon. I enrolled because it involves a lot of techniques and blocks with construction that I am not familiar with or haven't done a lot of. There is applique and then lots of HST and points (I always seem to cut them off!) Anyway, this started at the beginning of this month and I was very excited when I picked up my book and first block kit. This kit includes 3 versions of the same block (with points) and I jumped right it. On of the 4-1/4" squares was off, but was a little large, so no problem, just squared off and got 1st block made. Started second one last night and 2 of my fabrics that were supposed to be 4-1/4 in sq were cut too small...4-1/8" doesn't sound like much, but that is 1/4 inch each side and when making HST out of these, definitely caused more challenge than I had anticipated. In addition, the center was to be a 6-1/2 square and that wasn't square! Need to start 3rd block tonight and am hoping that the blocks are cut right. So, do I mention this when I pick up Septembers blocks, check them before I leave the shop? What do you suggest?
I am sure I am not alone in my frustration with these things, please share your experiences and solutions or work-arounds.
