When making your template, at one end, cut off 1 3/8in (3.5cm) at the same angle. The short parallel side should measure to 2 3/4in (7cm) and the long parallel side should measure 8 3/4in (22.2cm). Follow fabric cutting instructions on page 66.

Replace the first paragraph with:
Cut strips 5 ¼ in (13.3 cm) wide down the length of the fabric, ie along the length of the stripes. Using the 45º marking on your ruler to align with the edge, cut a line at 45º across the strip as shown in Striped Triangles Cutting Diagram Step A, then cut triangles along the strip as shown in Steps B and C, pivoting the ruler and lining up the 45º marking along the edge of the strip for each cut.
Strips from 3/8yd (40cm) will yield 1 triangle each.
Strips from a fat quarter will yield 2 triangles each.
Strips from 5/8yd (60cm) will yield 3 triangles each.

Replace the two paragraphs about cutting fabric E Aboriginal Dot Lime with the following:
Side Setting Triangles
From Aboriginal Dot Lime, cut a strip 4 7/8in (12.4cm) wide across the width of the fabric and cross cut 6 squares at 4 7/8in (12.4cm). Cut each square diagonally twice to make 4 quarter-square triangles from each square, to give a total of 24 triangles.
Corner Setting Triangles
From Aboriginal Dot Lime, cut 2 strips 2 3/4 (7cm) wide across the width of the fabric and cross cut 16 squares at 2 3/4 (7cm). Cut each square diagonally once to make 2 half-square triangles from each square, to give a total of 32 triangles.
Fabric key letters are incorrect in point 4 and point 5.

When making your template, from one end mark exactly 2in (5.1cm) along each parallel cutting line, mark with dots and draw a line joining the 2 dots to make a new diagonal end cutting line.
Cool Zig Zag p 141
Template Y diamond template for Cool Zig Zag on page 141 is a 60 degree diamond and should measure 5 3/4in (14.6cm) along each edge (in the book, two sides are slightly longer and the other two are slightly shorter).

Cayene Quilts p 123-125
Please follow the following directions in the sections indicated.
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.
