    Labyrink Walk pattern info

    A couple of suggestions for writing a pattern. Reading the list of fabric yardage required to make this project it has a numbered list. It would have been helpful to have read Fabric # 1, 2/3 yards Fabric # 2, etc. yep...I purchased 1 yard plus for #1, 2 yards plus for # 2, 3 yards plus for fabric 3. OMG! I will have more than enough to make this project multiple times! Gotta laugh.......my fault.


    Also, the term is “selvage” not “salvage”. Doesn’t anyone proofread patterns? And, yes, this is the revised, Corrected pattern.

    That misuse of ‘salvage’ rather than the correct ‘selvedge’ gets me, too! I haven’t seen it in a written pattern but some YouTube videos I’ve watched have had the spoken error. As to misreading fabric amounts, that sounds like something I’d do. Well, it sounds like your stash just grew.

    Since we're getting into spelling... "selvage" is an accepted alternate spelling. I always remember that the word is derived from 'self edge'. Pattern is still wrong, though!

    It sure did! One is black, one is white, the other two are light blue and dark blue. Oh well. Could have been worse, oh...wait...I ordered these from Hancocks of paducah in late 2016. The lt blue was on back order....they shipped it when it came in. Then they shipped it Again! I guess someone forgot to update the records. LOL! This project is Jinxed. The light blue will make pretty winter projects.

    Oh My, I guess you will have plenty to piece a backing. It will all coordinate. I have been wanting to do this pattern too.

    Accepted as an alternate spelling for what? The two words have very different meaning. Selvage means 'self edge' as you said. Salvage means to save something. 'save' with an 'a'. Many old sewing machines get salvaged.
    Another bugaboo is border and boarder. I said, "Maybe those boarders could help you with your borders." Boarders are people who eat at your house and may take a room, too, as in 'room and board'.

    Speaking of spelling errors, in the heading of this thread, should it not be Labyrinth instead of Labyrink? I also have problems with the use of selvage and salvage, as well as border and boarder.

    I'm one that never salvages my selvedges. I just toss them out.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    I say selvage but if someone says salvage it doesn't bother me at all. Why should it?
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Ok which is the correct spelling...selvege or selvedge? I get that it's not salvage, but is there a D or not?

    Selvage is an alternate spelling for selvedge.

    I am a terrible speller, but I want to do it correctly, so my dictionary is always handy. The words are selvage: the fabric edge; and salvage: to save something. No "D". My dictionary does not have the d.

    I had the same issue with the last baby quilt I made, luckily I don't pick just baby prints but prints that will grow with the child so I have enough fabric for at least two more baby quilts. At least it is my taste in fabric so I don't mind having some left but it was expensive to buy all at once.

    I would have loved to have been able to correct the spelling, but, alas, there is not an “edit” option for correcting titles. Good catch on your part.

    Sandy,

    Check the advanced edit feature. It appears the edit or advanced edit features are only available for a short time though. I had a typo in one of my post titles and could change it using "advanced". Hope that helps. Rhonda K

    Well, I am a retired English teacher(38 years) and it really bothers me when people misspell words or mispronounces words. It seems that they are too lazy to care and assume that the reader will correct.
