Add yardage for BROCADE PEONY as follows:
Grey PJ62GY 1 3/4yd (1.6m)
The strips should be cut lengthwise (not widthwise as stated) and are not joined.
For Borders 2-4 and 5 only you will still need to join sufficient widths of fabric strips end to end to achieve the correct lengths.

Increase yardage for CORSAGE (all colors) to 1 1/2 yd (1.4m) each.
Cut 5 flower patches across the width (not 6, as stated).

Do not use this. Instead, the outside setting triangles should be cut so the straight grain is on the outside edge of the quilt. Cut 6 squares each 12 1/2in x 12 1/2in (31.8cm x 31.8cm) and cut from corner to corner diagonally both ways, making 4 triangles from each square. Cut a total of 24 triangles. Use the remaining fabric to cut the Template B corner triangles.

The total amount of Tree Fungi for the patches and the binding is only 2 5/8 yd (2.4m). (Ignore the additional entry for Tree Fungi on page 114).
Cut the border first and use the leftover fabric for the medium-colored squares and the binding.

Strips for Pieced Blocks
The strips are cut at 5in (12.75cm). The Flame Stripe GP134BR fabric is cut across the width. Fussy cut a total of 8 strips 5in (12.75cm) wide, 4 with dark purple zigzags and 4 with dusty purple zigzags. Try and cut each set so they are as closely matched as possible. The Pebble Mosiac BM42OR fabric is cut down the length of the fabric with the yellow pebbles at one side of each strip. Cut 8 strips 5in x 40in (12.75cm x 101.5cm). You will get 7 strips from a 40in length of fabric so you will need 2 lengths to get the 8 strips. Reserve the remaining fabric which should be approx.. 35in (89cm) wide for the binding.
MAKING THE BLOCKS
Use a 1/4in (6mm) seam allowance throughout. Refer to the quilt assembly diagram and photograph for fabric placement. Make 8 strip sets from a strip of GP134BR and a strip of BM42OR. The yellow pebbles along the edge of the BM42OR should be furthest from the GP134BR fabric. From each strip set cut 4 squares 9 ½ in x 9 ½ in (24.25cm x 24.25cm) as shown in block cutting and assembly diagram A. Keep the squares sorted by zigzag colourway (dark purple and dusty purple).
Take 2 squares of the same colourway and lay them with the BM42OR fabric at the top. Cut the first square diagonally from top left to bottom right, the second square from top right to bottom left as shown in diagram B. Using the 4 cut triangles combine them as shown in diagram B to make 2 pieced squares as shown in diagrams C and D. In the dark purple colourway make 7 squares as shown in diagram C and 6 as shown in diagram D. In the dusty purple colourway make 6 squares as shown in diagram C and 7 as shown in diagram D. Keep 4 cut triangles to fill in the quilt sides.
Trim the pieced squares to 8 ½ in (21.5cm) square using Template VV. It is ESSENTIAL that the marked seam lines on the template are aligned very carefully when trimming (there will be considerably more to trim from 2 of the sides). Also trim the cut triangles using Template WW, aligning the marked seam line as before and stay stitch along the bias edge to stabilize.
Handkerchief Corners: You need 1/2 yd pieces of each stripe to make this quilt. (The book states 1/4 yd, but this is not enough)
Maths has been re-checked. The errata for Handkerchief Corners is correct although the quantity is slightly over-stated.
The quilt can be made with 35cm (14″) of each of 25 fabrics or 75cm (30″) of each of 12 fabrics. Following are the maths:
From each 2 1/2″ strip of fabric – two pieces 14 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and one piece 9 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ can be cut.
35cm (14″) of fabric yields five strips at 2 1/2″
Therefore 10 pieces at 14 1/2″ and 1 piece 9 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ can be cut from each fabric
Therefore, from 25 fabrics you will yield 250 pieces at 14 1/2″ and 25 pieces at 9 1/2″
75cm (30″) of fabric yields 11 strips at 2 1/2″
Therefore 22 pieces at 14 1/2″ and 2 pieces 9 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ can be cut from each fabric
Therefore, from 12 fabrics you will yield 264 pieces at 14 1/2″ and 24 pieces at 9 1/2″
The pattern calls for 240 pieces (14 1/2″ x 2 1/2″) to be sewn together in pairs and for 24 pieces (9 1/2″ x 2 1/2″) to be sewn together in pairs.
Either method will give you what you need.
