  2. Tried to make “Hard Candy” from Quilting Quickly Summer 2013, and quickly found out the template in the magazine was not correct. Spent a lot of time adjusting the seam allowances, as much as 1/4″ on each blade, to get the circle to lay flat. Has anyone else had this problem?

      • I must not be looking in the right place. The only corrections I see are for the Sweet Stars and Periwinkle quilts. Can you help me find the Hard Candy template correction? Thanks.

  3. We just tested the pattern again and it is correct. Some possible culprits and remedies:

    If you do not use the MSQC template and make your own, be sure to make a sturdy one so your cutting lines do not get distorted.

    Be sure to follow Jenny’s tip: Stitch from wide end of wedge to narrow end.

    Do not use steam when pressing your seams – just a light touch with the iron. Steam will ripple your seams because your cut edges are not on the straight grain.

    When cutting fabrics, try using just a mild touch of spray starch before cutting to help you keep thise edges firm.

    Let us know how it works out!

  4. I purchased Best of Fons & Porter Quilting Quickly book and I’d love to make the Hard Candy table runner. Could you tell me what size chevron fabric was used. I will be ordering online MSQC and Jennie has small, medium and large chevron fabric. I couldn’t tell by looking at the picture in the book. Thank you.
