Pattern Errors: Kindness and Empathy
There’s an error in the Yule Glow pattern, my recent design in McCall’s Quilting. A mistake is a drag for everyone: the editors who wrote the pattern, the designer who wants the pattern to do well, and the reader who just wants to make a quilt without a lot of hassle.
But do you know what can make all the difference in the world?
How someone asks about an error.
This time, the reader was gracious and sweet. She emailed me this:
I think there might be an error in the quilt pattern, “Yule Glow”, McCall’s Quilting. p.20
In the Cutting Instructions, I believe the 3 squares, Red tone-on-tone, (E) should be 2 3/8″ not 5 1/2″. If I’m wrong, or if it’s already been reported, please ignore and forgive my note.I’m loving the pattern and construction process, using scraps. Your directions are very clear.
