About Pattern Errata

Something doesn't seem quite right. How can I tell if the problem is with my sewing or your pattern? Okay, you've caught us. We try to make our patterns as perfect as we can, but sometimes we have an off day, and we make a mistake. There. We said it. And we're very sorry. To make it up to you we've provided corrections to some of Connecting Threads' free and exclusive patterns. The errata are sorted alphabetically by pattern name. Errata is such a fancy name for correction, don't you think?

All Paths Lead Home - 3218

This is a scrappy quilt that alternates red and white placements of A and B. 

From all red and cream fabrics (except fabric 8) you will need to cut equal amounts from each to total: 

  • One hundred sixty 3-7/8” sqs cut once diagonally; and,
  • Two hundred forty 1-7/8” x 4-3/4” rectangles. 

The letter/number reference shown on the mini-blocks pages 3-4 are not accurate.  Alternate red and cream fabrics for a scrappy look.
