Updated 07-29-22:

If using just (10) 3/8 yard Colored Fabrics - cut the following. You will end up with more 7-1/2” squares for the Color Streak than needed - repeat your favorite colors when making the squares needed for the color streak and reserve the excess squares for a another project. As above you will also end up with more strips for the inner border and binding than needed - if desired, cut the strips down to 27” and audtion the sequence around your quilt so more colors can be used. Refer to the Cutting Instructions on page 1 of the pattern for the total number of squares and strips required for the quilt size you are making.



Updated 03-24-21:

1)  Page 3 - Step #3-4 - Clarification & TIP: - Figs 2 & 3 (please orientate the wing units before slicing off outer corners so that the 6-1/4" edge is running north to south) - see diagram below:


2) Page 4 - Step #8 - please delete ...."your unit should measure approximately 6-1/2" x 10...".  This measurement is not needed.  Just trim the top edge of the bug body even - taking off the least amount of fabric you can.

3)  Page 6 - Fig 21: Clarification & TIP:  When placing the background triangle Right Sides Together on the Antenna Strip and angling it - the  background triangle should extend at least 1" above and 1" below the antenna strip.  When placing the second background triangle on the other side of the antenna strip, the bottom tips of the 2 background triangles should overlap each other (as indicated in Fig 21).

4) Page 7 - Figs 27-28:  The antenna tips do not necessarily need to match in the direct center - they can be wonky...this gives the bugs 'personality' (see picture below):




Added 05-10-21:

Background Fabrics/Cutting - PAGE 2 & CUTTING DIAGRAM INSERT:  When cutting your background fabrics (specifically the individual strips from the background fabrics), please cut strip lengths UNFOLDED to get the maximum cuts from each strip.

Also there was an error on our first version of the cutting diagram insert for the Lap Quilt - the directions and diagrams  in the pattern on pages 2-3 are correct though - please download the new Cutting Diagram Insert for ModBox here - specifically for the Lap Quilt only you should cut (21) 2.5" x12.5" strips (not 10.5" as the old cutting insert says) from Background Fabrics #1 & #2 (see page 2 of pattern).

Added 06-29-20:

Page 1 - Cutting:  For the background - You will need a total of:
•  (25) 10-1/2" x 10-1/2" squares;
•  (16) 2-1/2" x 10-1/2" strips;
•  (4) 2-1/2" x 12-1/4" strips (not 12-1/2" long as the pattern states)



Added 4-15-20:

Materials List (back of pattern cover) Backing Fabric required is 1-1/2 yards.



Added 12-01-19:

1. Page 4- Step #3-b:  Cutting the Background Fabric for the Flower Blocks - delete  "Cut (12) 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" squares" - you will not need these. Patterns that were mailed after December 15, 2019 have been corrected and already have this step deleted. 

2. Pages 3-4:  When cutting out template shapes C & B from strips of fabric, be sure to cut the shapes with the strip UNFOLDED and right side up.

3. REVISE Template D - the outer hashmarks (either side of the center hashmark) are incorrectly placed and need to be moved an additional 1/4" further away from the center hashmark. Please refer to the reference photo here  or download a New Template D by clicking here.


1. Added 10-01-18:  Page 3- Step #4 - Figure #3 - change the direction of the pressing to outward. This will make the seams nest together.



1. Added 11-29-16:  Page 1 - Please make the following correction under "Part One-Cut Your Fabrics":
Cut the following from each of your 12 fabrics:
     •  (1) 8-1/2" x 8-1/2" square (you will use 10);
     •  (2) 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" rectangles (you will use 14);
     •  (1) 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" square (you will use 12);
     •  (2) 3-1/2" x 8-1/2" rectangles plus (2) additional 3-1/2" x 8-1/2" rectangles
                  from leftovers  (you will use 26);
     •  (1) 3-1/2" X 5-1/2" rectangle (you will use 12)


1. Added 06-07-17:   
Page 1 -  Cutting - Please make the following correction for the B/G: TV Legs:

  • (2) 3-1/2” x 3-1/2” squares, cut in half to create (4) 1-3/4” X 3-1/2” strips (B/G: Legs);

Page 3 -  Stitch the Legs:

    • 1. Gather the following pieces: Fabric #1 - Background: (2) 3-1/2” x 3-1/2” squares, cut in half to create (4) 1-3/4” X 3-1/2” strips (B/G: Legs) - (change the measurement in Steps 3 & 5 and Fig. 4 & 5 to reflect this as well).  Continue to follow the steps to create the legs.
    • Once these 1-3/4" x 3-1/2" background pieces are stitched to either side of a TV leg, then trim the unit to 2-1/2" x 3".
