    Here is a paper piecing site with neat patterns. I printed one of them and the 1/4's seem so small. How do I know if it's right?

    Make sure when you print that the no scale is checked,

    I just printed "vines at the window" and it measures exactly as it should. each inner quarter, measures 3" (finished) and the seam allowance is right on too.

    i have seen PP patterns that print out with a "this should measure 1") a 1 inch square, to make sure the scale is right..

    hope that helps. kim
