    Great blocks everyone. I have Mayflower done, but need to get the other one put together.

Size:  195.8 KB I choose two subs for this week. I went to Quilters Cache and used Bouncing Betty and American Charmer.

    Ggal, great blocks. I've been making my subs from Quilters Cache, too. I've had 2 come out 1/2" too small. Have you had this happen? I'm just going to add a border so they're still usable. I don't think I screwed up (well, maybe) because I paper pieced them; they just came out small.
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    Jan, I have had the same problem with the Quilter's Cache PP patterns. I usually use Chrome as a browser, so someone said to switch to Internet Explorer. I tried that and the patterns did measure 1" in the test square. Also be sure to tell the printer program that comes up to print "actual size". Hope that helps!

    I've only used patterns that I could use my templates for and they sized out okay. For now, I've sworn off pp and y seams.

    Very appropriate subs, GGal. Deb Watkins on another thread also mentioned that QCache often times are a little off and to use that elusive scant 1/4" seam allowance

    Thanks Jeanie-I use IE but I didn't measure the 1" square; I just started sewing. I'll definitely check the next one. I'm not sure how to do a scant 1/4" seam when pp, OKsewglad but I'll also keep that in mind. You guys are so helpful-thank you!
