Oops! Issue 43 Up and away kite quilt: correction

how to sew patchwork kites

We’ve spotted a small error in the instructions for our FPP rainbow kits, designed by Michelle Curtis, in issue 43 of Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine. If you’re making Michelle’s high-flying patchwork kites, read on to make sure you cut your finished kites to the correct size!

We have a small update to step number 8 in the instructions… when you get to page 26 and you’ve finished foundation paper piecing your kite, you should trim your unit on the outer SOLID line of the template (not the dashed line, as we stated in the magazine). The outer solid outline includes seam allowance for future steps in the instructions.

There’s no change to any of the other instructions or the templates – and if you fancy giving this project a go, you can download our FPP kite patchwork templates here.

We’re really sorry about this. We triple check all of our patterns as thoroughly as we can before we go to print, but every so often an error slips through the net!
