    1 August 2012 BOM pattern & directions

    I'm too excited to wait until midnight here, so I'm pretending I'm in Maine where it is now midnight!

    When I think of August, I think of hot summer days. So I choose the sun: bright, warm, cheerful.
    Hope you all have fun with this!

    Has anyone had trouble with the printing of this pattern? Printing directly from quilter's cache - my test square is coming out 3/4". I'll try to copy and past it into adobe acrobat.

    JeanieG I also had trouble printing it out. I had to change my browser from Google Chrome to Internet Explorer. For some reason it was bugged printing from the Google Chrome. I did finally get it printed though. Now Im just trying to decide which fabrics I want to go with.

    Have a great evening ladies.
    Have an awesome day!

    I was using Firefox and had to go to Page Setup and scale it to 204%.

    I always have to switch to IE in order to print patterns from quilter's cache to the correct scale.

    My test square printed out to 1" right on the dot. I am heading for hot pinks for this one.

    With Firefox, I have to click in the 1" square before I print it. That enlarges the pattern to the correct size for me.

    Hi Jenniky.........I was hoping you were here today!! While you are waiting, you might want to select some pretty fall colors for the September block. I just know you are going to LOVE it!!

    Thank you Surfergirl for letting us know. Don't worry one bit about being late, as you can always catch up at any time. Have a good few weeks & check in on us when you can. Hope all is well your way.
