I always test every pattern myself and hope against hope that no errors creep in. But if they do, I will update this page - and the pattern - as soon as they're brought to my attention. If you have a PDF Pattern and would like an updated copy, please contact me here.

The heading for assembling the red nine-patch block has wrongly been titled green (ah, the perils of cut and paste!)

British Sew-a-row Finishing

STEP 21 should read “To make the top sashing, join a 1½” x 4½” background piece…” (not 1½” x 2½” as stated)

STEP 22 should read “To make the bottom sashing, join a 1½” x 4½” background…” (not 1½” x 2½” as stated)

Kitchen Garden

ASSEMBLING THE ROOT VEGETABLES ROW (page 13): The steps are incorrectly numbered and should read 16 and 17 (not 11 and 12), also you will be using a parsnip block, not a turnip!

STEP 13 Cabbages (page 15): On reflection, I should have made the 1¾” x 8½” grey brown strips 1¾” x 9" so you have more wriggle-room when you square up the block to 8½" in step 14.


ASSEMBLING THE CABBAGES ROW (page 16): Two of the cabbages in the row will be mirror images, which is not shown in the illustration.


STEP 16 Garden Tools (page 22): ...join a 1” x 1½” piece to the remaining 1½” x 4” sand piece... (not 1½” x 4½” as stated). The cutting directions (step 3) are correct.


ASSEMBLING THE GARDEN TOOLS ROW (page 24): The fork and spade are shown the wrong way around in the illustration.

GARDEN BORDERS MATERIALS (page 30): You will need 4 2" squares of the ginger print for the bee (not 1½” squares as stated).


STEP 18 Kitchen Garden Borders (page 33): The illustration is incorrect and should show a 'B' leaf unit (not 'A' as shown).

STEP 19 Kitchen Garden Borders (page 33): ...Snowball one end of a 2½" x 10½” print piece... (not 2½" x 12½” as stated). The Materials list is correct.
