One thought on “2809: Patriotic Quilts in Honor of US Veterans (Red, White & Gratitude)

  1. I have been a subscriber for MANY years and when I see a pattern that I think I may like to try, I make a copy of it and file it away. Recently, I decided to make the Red, White and Gratitude quilt for a QOV. I watched the video on IPTV and saw the different ways it can be arranged. When I got ready to start “designing”, I found that in your July/August 2016 magazine pattern, there is an error on the Quilt Top Assembly Diagram on page 82. It’s on the 5th row, with placement being upside down. In the finished quilt, it is ok but I have to say that it rather “threw me” for awhile until I figured it out. You have probably already been aware of this but I didn’t see anything online in “comments”, so thought I would alert you to the error. Thank you for a great magazine and show on IPTV.
