Please note the following corrections:
Issue 11.1 Life Is a Celebration Materials List
Unfortunately we have become aware of some confusion regarding the list of materials for the Life Is A Celebration BOM. To clarify - the amount of each fabric listed in our Materials list in Homespun Vol 11 No 1 is sufficient for the block backgrounds and borders, the sashings between the blocks as the quilt top is assembled and all the borders. There is also some surplus of fabrics that could be used for many of the applique shapes - but when drafting the instructions and developing the Materials list, we did not map the size of each and every applique shape and allow sufficient fabric for all of them. That's why the Materials list includes "Assorted scraps from your stash to tone with the French Hatbox fabrics (applique)". The fact that a designer used a French Hatbox fabric for an applique shape doesn't mean that readers are expected to use it, so we have not for catered for this in the material list.
Unfortunately we have become aware that an error has slipped through on the instructions for Life Is A Celebration - Nature. Please note that step 1 should read:
1. From the white tone-on-tone spot print fabric, cut one rectangle, 13½ x 17½in. Our sincere apologies that this error appeared in print.
We have had some enquiries in relation to the scallop template required for the Life Is A Celebration – Pets block. This template is the same scallop template that appeared with the Life Is A Celebration – Family block on Homespun’s 11.3 pattern sheet. If you are missing this issue and require the scallop template to complete your Pets block in 11.8, you can download the template here.
