  1. Everything looked great until I tried to attach the left and right sides to the center braided section, it just doesn't match up. The center section is longer. I will deal with it tomorrow.

  2. I find it hard to believe Marian Gallian made the quilt as the instructions were published. The V-W-X half triangle needs to be altered, as this will not line up with the N-O-P and Q-R-S sections as published. Also, the Side Diagrams on page 38 is incorrect. The right hand side should have the F-G and H-I section on the left of the piece. Notice on the Ohio Star directions, (page 44) the Sew Easy; Quick Hourglass Units are NOT found on page 58 as stated. They are on page 74. Was considering a subscription – not until I see better copy editing.

  3. I, too, had difficulty with this pattern, particularly putting the center braid together with the two sides. I’d forgotten why I scrapped the whole project until I pulled it out to finish it again, looked at it, and looked the pattern up, thinking it was probably just me. I’m planning on scrapping the middle entirely and doing something else to fill the space.
