'130 Little Quilt Blocks' - amendment to block on p. 29

West Michigan Quilter spotted that there was an error in one measurement for the Art Deco II block on page 29. Luckily the mistake means the pieces were cut too large rather than too small! The green strips in the centre should have been listed as 5 1/2in x 1in, as above, but somehow in the editing an extra 1/2in had crept onto the strip width. I've reported this to my editor and it will be fixed in future editions.

If you find any errors in any of my books, please let me know. While every effort is made to ensure that the measurements are correct, such as the book's samples being made from the drafted measurements list, pattern testing, extensive proofreading at three stages etc. sometimes typo errors do creep in, probably as a result of how the text is manipulated by myself, the technical editor and the designer.

BTW, depending on where you are in the world, this book will have one of two titles in English - either '130 Little Quilt Blocks' (UK) or '130 Mini Quilt Blocks' (USA, Australia etc.) I don't know why the UK one is different!

Thanks Susan. I love this book and because my piecing skills and math skills leave a lot to be desired I was unable to figure it out. Now you have done that for me, I will go back and fix it and post about it. Thanks for your help.

This correction should say p. 53. The block is #29, Art Deco Steps.

Thanks again, Susan. I finished the tabletopper and posted about it today.
