    Thanks, CajunBear. I too was having the same problem. Did as you suggested & went through IE. Worked perfectly.

    My templates for this month printed out just fine from Explorer! When I think about the last time I almost went nuts trying to get to the right scale! lol Just thought I'd share!

    Hugs,

    Thanks, Cajun. I was having the same problem and this time too. Went around it by saving it on Adobe Reader 1st. Because I had forgotten & already printed 1 set.
    After your posted suggestion I went to Quilter's Cache through IE & sure enough, it worked perfectly.
    Now if only I can remember next month!
    Thanks.

    I think I would rather paper piece than anything else!! My first block of the month was a church with an African theme. Loved it and it was PP.
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

    I remember your first paper pieced block of the Church with your African theme & I loved it too. Boy, I am with you on the paper piecing, it is my favorite way to make blocks. So glad you are sharing with us again.

    Once, when I had difficulty, someone sent me the right size templates. Another time my husband was able to print them at work, because he had the option to print actual size. He's going to try that again today.

    So, I've had this issue 3 of the 8 months. Could it be the way/size/options when the designer uploads them to Quilter's Cache?

    Betty, I just read your post, I'll try printing from Explorer.
    i think I was the one that mailed you the templates. That was the month I was going nuts trying to get the right size to print!

    Hugs,

    Thank you, I like the way it turned out too. When I go to print out mine I have to hit print preview first, then make sure it says 100% or it always prints to small. And I'm not a paper piecer, just always do it backwards or the fabric is too small when I flip it over. I printed this pattern and cut it all apart, then added 1/4" seam when I laid the paper pieces on the fabric. Lots of cutting and figuring but worth it. Now you know what my paper piecing is
