    Qb block of the month - may 2013 - tenth star

    Here's what you all have been waiting for: the next block

    It's called Tenth Star and you can find it here: http://quilterscache.com/V/VOS_TenthStarBlock.html

    It's really not as hard as it looks! I didn't know what I got myself into when I picked this one but I made the block and it's really quite easy. Just follow the instructions and you'll be fine.

    Good luck all

    I am also liking this block a lot. One question though about printing the paper piecing template. It is a GIF file and the test square prints at 1.5 inches. How do I save the image as a PDF? I am using Windows 7. If all else fails I guess I could recreate the template to achieve the correct size.

    I'm using Windows 7 also and Google Chrome. I don't remember having problems with the measurements. I don't know how to save a GIF file as PDF, I guess you'll have to convert it yourself. Did you try and alter the printer settings? Like printing on 75% and see if it prints the test square at 1" ?

    Thanks Anael. I will try your suggestion. If all else fails I will go to my old PC and print it. I guess it helps to have the old one still available, LOL

    Wow! That is one I haven't noticed" It will be fun to try something so different. Fabrics will make it look great!

    Good choice! Love the challenge of a block not made before!

    Hugs,

    Cajun

    Figured it out. Saved it to MS Word, then saved it as a PDF. In order to print it with the correct 1 inch test square I had to go to custom scaling and increase the scaling to 110%. Whooo Hoooo!

    Caroline, I use Chrome and there is a plug in that allows me to select Print then change from my printer to PDF. This is the greatest thing when I want to save instructions online too!

    Hugs,
