QN February/March 2011 #420

Those of you receiving your subscriber copies of February/March 2011 may have noticed a discrepancy in the table of contents. The article titled “Splendor of Alhambra: Mosaic Tile Quilts” actually begins on page 56 and the article titled “Mosaic Patchwork Bonanza” actually begins on page 34.  That’ll teach us not to have two such similarly-named articles in the future! Sorry for any confusion.
