    EQ7 users printing question

    I am wanting to put a 11.5" block with a regular 9 patch block. I am trying to figure out how to print the 9 patch block template to get the correct measurement for the pieces. I can't figure out how to do this because I can't highlight BLOCK from the print options. Anyone have suggestions for me?

    On the far right of the screen where the little tools are, there should be an arrow that points to the upper-left at a 45 degree angle - if you hover the mouse over it, it will say "Select". Click on the arrow, then click on the block you want to print. That works for me. Good luck.

    That worked to print out the block but it doesn't add the 1/4" seam allowance to the block. I thought EQ automatically did that. I think the blocks should be cut at 4 5/16" but I wanted to be sure. Thanks for your help though.

    when you select and choose print, you should be offered options... perhaps you want rotary cutting or perhaps templates. either should give your the correct sizes. you could also do it as paper pieced.
