Merrily Sewing Pattern Corrections for Moda
Hi Friends! I have some good news and bad news. The good news is that Merrily for Moda Fabric has sold incredibly well! We were thrilled that so many stores ordered the fabric, and that this upcoming Christmas there will be sweet GIngiber critters to help decorate for the holidays.
The bad news, to be honest, is that this was my first time having sewing patterns written and sold for Moda. And, it turns out there are a few mistakes in the pattern books. BUT I am publishing the pattern corrections right here, so that if you happened to get one of the patterns and have discovered a problem, we will address it.
You know the best part of making a mistake like this? You learn how to do it better the next time! So, for our upcoming collection, Savannah, we are going to be extra vigilant about finding errors before we go to print!
Merrily Pattern G002:
On the back fabric requirements it says: 9.5" x 10" panels, it should say 9" x 10.5" panels. Because on page one, it says to cut panel down to 8.75" x 10.5".
Also on page one, increase the Fabric B strips to 1.5" to accommodate the seam allowance.
The four blocks on the side finish at 2.75" (3.25" minus seam allowance .5) , 2.75 times four equals 11" then you have to add .5 back on for the two outside ends 1/4" allowance.
So the four blocks sewn together will be 11.5" and the panel at 10.5 + 1" fabric B will only give you 11", so make the fabric B 1.5" and all is good.
Jolly Wall Quilt Pattern G003:
The dimensions for trimming the panel are incorrect. They do not take into account the seam allowances on the pieced strips. The panel should be trimmed to: 17" X 19.75".
