    1 OCTOBER 2013 Quilt-Block-of-The Month pattern & directions.

    Hello Everyone,

    Sorry this posting is so late today, but here is the choice for October 2013!! I enjoyed making this Caned Seat Block so much & hope you do to. When printing your instruction's be sure to check the size of your 1 inch square. Enjoy!!

    It will look very bold in yellow/black & grey/white. Thanks, SulaBug!

    I have never had so much trouble printing a quilt block pattern. I don't have no scaling on my printer options. The A & B are scaled at 95% so I had to keep playing until I figured that 106% or 107% was as close to 1" as I was going to get. Then C was printing too big. When I put it back to 100%, it printed correctly. It didn't like my paper. Changed to regular printer paper. Had to get my son out out of bed to help me with this one. He wasn't happy. This square better go together easily or I'm skipping this one. Maybe I'll go back to bed too. It's only 9:40. That's not to late to go back to bed, is it?lol
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    I was starting to wonder if this board was government funded and was shut down. ;-) Just kidding. That is a very pretty block!

    Thanks for the block! Not sure how it will look with all my patterned fabrics, but look forward to trying it out later.

    Print Templates from QC

    I have discovered a little secret to Quilter's Cache Paper-Piecing patterns...I can't print them correctly from Chrome! lol Just thought this morning this is ridiculous, I have used her patterns for years and never had a problem...then it dawned on me...duh...you are no longer using Explorer for your browser maybe that's the problem and it WAS! lol

    My templates for this month printed out just fine from Explorer! When I think about the last time I almost went nuts trying to get to the right scale! lol Just thought I'd share!

    Hugs,
    Betty

    I can't get it to print the right size either. I don't understand why sometimes "print actual size" is in my printer options, and sometimes it is not. Sometimes they just print right without checking that box, or "no scaling" or changing anything.

    Once, when I had difficulty, someone sent me the right size templates. Another time my husband was able to print them at work, because he had the option to print actual size. He's going to try that again today.

    So, I've had this issue 3 of the 8 months. Could it be the way/size/options when the designer uploads them to Quilter's Cache?

    Betty, I just read your post, I'll try printing from Explorer.

    Yes! You are right Betty, mine printed perfectly from Explorer. Oh, that means I can take a break from this tedious sewing machine cover I'm making and do the BOTM today. Thank you!

    btw I thought I had read all the posts when I typed my last post.

    I'm a terrible paperpiecer so I just follow the lines & make adjustments if needed. I always check my piece before I sew though. The blocks that have more than 50 pieces I break out the paper! Math teacher & linear person here, applique and circular pieces are my downfall but I am trying to learn those.

    Thanks, CajunBear. I too was having the same problem. Did as you suggested & went through IE. Worked perfectly.

    Thanks, Cajun. I was having the same problem and this time too. Went around it by saving it on Adobe Reader 1st. Because I had forgotten & already printed 1 set.
    After your posted suggestion I went to Quilter's Cache through IE & sure enough, it worked perfectly.
    Now if only I can remember next month!
    Thanks.

    I think I would rather paper piece than anything else!! My first block of the month was a church with an African theme. Loved it and it was PP.
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!
