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. Patterns with corrections are listed alphabetically below. Click on the arrows for details.
Subsection 9(c) will measure 13" x 5 1/2"
Section 9 will measure 28" x 20 1/2"
On page 4, under Block 4(B4), square F is a Fabric 4 square, not a background square as originally listed. The diagram is correct.
On page 8, in the section “Combine HST Units to Make QST Units”, step 2 should read:
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".
Please note that while viewing the eclipse in August 2017 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 you saw may have been flipped.

On page 3, the size of Unit L was different in the table and the diagram. Unit L was listed as 12 3/4" in the table but 12 1/2" in the boxed diagram. Either measurement will work. The pieced triangle that uses this unit is trimmed to size on page 4.
In the box in the middle of page 3, the caption for the diagram showing Unit N has been corrected to label it N (the caption incorrectly said E, though the diagram label was correctly labelled N. The scaling of the Unit N diagram has been corrected to reflect the square dimensions of the unit.
At the bottom of page 4, the caption listing how many blocks to make with each fabric was incorrect. Make 4 blocks each with Fabrics 4 and 5.
On page 6, Under Make Block 3, Step 2 should read to place right sides together.
Small Change clarification
Background refers to the block background, which is white in both versions of the quilt. Both versions use the same block with the same color placement. Switching the sashing and border color changes the appearance of the design from version 1 to version 2.
Background fabric required for Twin size quilt is 5 3/4 yards.
In copies printed before May 26, 2021, there is a correction to the yardage and cutting for the queen size. Unit counts for the king size were also incorrect, but did not affect cutting or yardage. Corrections are listed below:
String of Diamonds
Cut size of squares A should be 3 3/8".
