I am taking a paper piecing class with the hopes that one day I can make "Cinqo de Mayo" by Karen Stone. (Really ambitious I know ! ! !)
We did one block in class from a pattern the teacher gave us. She then gave us the special paper and told us to make copies at home for all the patterns we wanted to include in our sampler.
I made my copies and just finished a block, trimmed it down and held the 2 blocks together. The block made from my printer is 1/8 in bigger than the pattern from the teacher. I compared to the book. Teachers pattern is right, mine is off.
So... If I continue to use my copier for all the patterns and they are ALL slightly bigger, is that OK? Or do I need to scrap the bigger one and find a copier that makes it all exact?
