  1. I have been trying to read the newest issue on my iPad, but every time it try to open it, it just shuts down. I see by the comments in the App Store others are having the same issue. It would be nice if you could fix it or refund our subscriptions.

  2. I have been working on the Prairie Wind pattern by Diane Tomlinson. The correction regarding the “cutting” of the wedges and cream print squares have been noted as to how many to cut. However, I feel there is still some corrections to be made regarding the first border (braid). Like what size do you cut the cream square to be used for the background and what template is to be used for the quarter circle? I have read and re-read the original directions for this border and am still at a loss. I’m a fourth generation quilter. Please be a little more specific as to the directions for completing this first border. Thanks

    1. Hi Dorthea! We are so glad you contacted us. So sorry for the confusion! Hopefully, this makes the construction of the middle border a bit more user-friendly:

      First — p.72, middle column, under “Dark Print FQ Cut: 116 Quarter Circles” –> Use the template that is found on p.78 (as noted in the general cutting instructions in this same column). This will create all the “pie” shapes.
      Second — p.74, under “From Cream print Cont.” the quilter is directed to cut 3½” strips: “…cut A rectangles THEN cut (116) 3½” squares.” –> Using the Take-Away template found on p.78 (peach colored like the diagram), cut the curved edge. This will create the “pie crust” shaped pieces for the pieced middle border.

      This pattern is rated challenging and it does take a bit of figuring to get all the pieces created. Let us know if you have anymore questions!
