Pattern Corrections

Thank you for using a Canuck Quilter Designs pattern.  

Despite my efforts and those of my testers and proofreaders, errors can slip through. Thank you for understanding. Any required corrections will be listed on this page.  Patterns are listed alphabetically.


CASCADE (updated 05/28/2020)

  • Subsection 9(c) will measure 13" x 5 1/2"
  • Section 9 will measure 28" x 20 1/2"

ECLIPSE SKY (updated on 10/13/2017)

The finished length of the quilt is 71.5", not 62" as stated on the cover and in the pattern.  The difference affects the amount of batting required, the backing size, and the length of the binding:
  • Batting: 60" x 76"
  • Backing: 3 3/4 yards (the previously stated 3 1/2 yards will work but be a little bit less forgiving when loading the quilt on a longarm machine) 
  • On page 8,  disregard the stated size of the backing.  Simply piece the two lengths along a long side.
  • On page 8, the required length of double fold binding should read 266".

GEESE ACROSS THE TABLE (updated 12/06/2019)
  • Binding fabric required: 1 yard of fabric to cut 14 strips instead of 12 strips.
  • Batting required:  45" x 65" 

STRING OF DIAMONDS (updated March 2013)
  • Cut size of squares A should be 3 3/8".


  1. Also, for the Eclipse to show proper motion in the photo, panels 1 & 5 need to be swapped, and panels 2 & 4 need to be swapped.

    1. Thank you for your comment. Viewing the eclipse in August directly through eclipse glasses, we saw the phases exactly in the order and orientation pictured in the quilt. Depending on the optics of various viewing methods (for example some telescopes, pinhole viewing) the image may be flipped as you describe.

  2. I just finished String of Diamonds. C ended up being short and not squaring up with the rest of the placemat. I’m not sure if it was because I didn’t sew everything exactly or if it should have been cut at 1 1/4 inch instead of 1”.

    1. Thanks for checking. The pattern is correct. C is cut 1" x 4 1/2". When all seams are sewn with a correct 1/4" seam allowance, the strip made up of 3 Units 1 and 2 C will measure 13 1/2" long, which is also the dimension of the remaining pieces of the placemat.
