    I have bought some fabrics but I do not know how to make the adjustments for the computer to get the correct sizes of the patterns. I guess since I have never paper pieced, it all seems so overwhelming.

    Karenkrafts, you did a perfect job. Wow and without a pattern. I didn't do that well with a pattern. Great job.

    Hi Debbie,

    If you absolutely can't adjust your printer to the correct size, try using the window template A section for size and trace out the other sections on graph paper.

    I did have to change my printer from portrait to landscape between templates to get the correct size.

    Good luck! and don't give up.

    Debbie, don't despair! When you changed your computer for template A, did you change the % or just the print (to landscape)?Try and reprint Template B and C, using your printer defaults as they were prior to making any changes for template A. Then measure the test square again to make sure it is one inch. When I made my block, A and B printed much smaller and C was spot on. Let us know how it goes, we can help!

    Also, I printed a link that gives resizing % for a specific block size. I think its back around page 19 or so.

    Grandma Cindy, go to the quilters cache page and click on Template A, then go to File and click on Print Preview, on my screen at the top there are 2 A's, I click the one that says landscape when you put your mouse pointer to it. Remember to print B and C templates as a regular print job, not landscape. Make sure and measure your one inch test square on all templates. Let us know if this works for you. Good Luck!

    I got this from the November 2010 BOM. I've used it several times now and I didn't know how to enlarge either...........Hope this helps.

    How to change the size of your print-out.

    1. Click on Template A
    2. Left click on File
    3. Go to Print Preview
    4. On that ribbon, go to the box that says "Shrink to fit"
    5. Click on the down arrow
    6. Scroll to Custom, click
    7. Type in 111% as your starting point, hit Enter
    8. Place your cursor on the Printer on the same ribbon
    9. Left click
    10. Printer box comes up. Be sure you only print one for now. Measure the “Test 1inch” box and make sure it measures 1 inch.

    If it doesn’t………keep adjusting the 111% up or down till you get the right size.

    We are finding only the Template A needs to be adjusted and printed in “Landscape” mode. However, check the test box on each as you print them.

    here is my church -- unfinished -- I still have to embrioder the cross and a door pull. I have no greens here so the bottom won't get finished until I get to Olympia.

    I had forgotten some of the tricks of the trade about removing the paper easily. I used to do a lot of PP
