    I printed mine at - center block (courthouse steps) printed at 100%, side triangle at 75%, and corner square and side triangles at 75%. When I hold them up to the light it looks like they will fit together ok.

    Mine printed at 103%, 110% and 120%...after about a dozen attempts. Don't understand why its so difficult.

    In spite of having massive computer problems, my patterns printed great. Can't wait to get started. Love this new Star.

    Well here she is June Star. I started out with multiple colors but went back and just used two made a more dramatic look.

    good luck I had to make the center pp 110% to get it to equal 1".

    Although this block was a lot of fun, I don't think it adapted very well to my BOM color theme.

    Michelle and Mona Lisa, I love both of your stars. I'm not sure why you don't think it works with your colors, Mona Lisa. I think it's beautiful.

    come on where are your block I thought there would be more that just 2 by now. It is a very easy PP once you get the scale factor worked out.

    mona lisa 2011 I think your colors look great together. put them all together and stand back and look at them you will be amazed to see the beauty of them combined. a pic showing us would be nice also. hint hint

    I am having an awful time getting the 2nd & 3rd page of the pattern to print out correctly. Maybe someone else is having the same problem??? Any suggestions would be helpful.

    I've decided to post my star, although I'm not happy with how it turned out. I should have reversed the colors because my points don't stand out. I didn't realize this until I assembled the block.

    Hi Sufergirl. I was wondering if you could release the seams just past the tan points and replace them with blue points. They would be bigger points than the pattern but that would be OK. Or....maybe outline the tan point with blue thread. It wouldn't take much because the eye wants to finish it anyway. :wink: Thanks for going early in the star month. :wink:

    Thanks Whitepine...I think I'll try to change the points. I hadn't thought of doing this, but it might work.

    I wanted to use 2 colors for my star and I wanted the center to be dark blue and the rest to be dark yellow, not thinking the points would turn out like they did. I thought others might benefit from my error. I'm rather new to quilting and have a lot to learn.
