    Hi Wendi,
    Re. your Fletcher quilt pattern: The instructions say to sew on the diagonal 1/4 inch away from line 1 to line 2. Most patterns I’ve seen that use this method of getting an extra 1/2 square triangle this way (in your case to be used on the back of the quilt) say to sew 1/2 an inch away from line 1 to line 2. Is this a typo on your part, or does this mean all the seams will end up only have a 1/8 inch seam allowance? Thanks ahead of time for the clarification. I love your style of writing — phrases like, “do you want to do the math or do you want to start quilting?” are just one example of the times you’ve brought a smile to my face. I can’t believe you’re able to do all you do and still have time to do the regular homemaking tasks of being a wife and mother. You must be an excellent time manager as well. I also enjoy the willingness you have to share the creative experiences you have with your daughter and husband – be it crafts, cooking, writing workshops, or whatever. Your weekly newsletter visits always brighten my day. Thank you, Wendi!

    • Thanks so much for your nice note!

      It’s not a typo, and yes you’re correct that that means 1/8″ seams.

      Usually for 1/2 square triangles you draw a line from point to point and then sew 1/4″ on each side of the line. On mine I actually had you sew on that point to point line, so it’s a little different. I have you sew 1/4″ from that seam because it’s easy – most people have a 1/4″ foot. Nobody has a 1/2″ foot, so that would have been tricky. :-) It doesn’t really matter what your seam allowance is in this case – what matters is the accuracy of that stitched line.

    I love the name! It’s so appropriate. It’s a beautiful quilt as well. I think I’ll add it to the queue :o)

    I’m not able to get the download link to work. I’m wondering if you have taken the pattern down for some reason. My sister loves this pattern and I had planned to make it for her house warming. Thanks in advance for any help with the link.

    • Thanks for letting me know! It looks like the link got messed up somehow, but I’ve fixed it and it’s good now. Download away! :-)
