    Hey everyone,
    This is going to be the blocks I am going to use in our family christmas quilt. I have 9 differnt applique santas all old world and victorian. The santas will correspond with the colors of the fabrics from the swappers Christmas Star blocks. I have 4 stars so far. Hope to get 12 Stars and I'm making 12 santas.
    Thank you quilter artist that have made the stars so far.
    Our family christmas quilt is going to be awesome because of you guys.

    I'm having issues with the star thank goodness I decided to use old scraps I'm not able to print out the samples, they are set at 164% does any one know where I should set it to get 12 1/2 block so I could just trace it off my Monitor Screen?
    I bought Christmas Fabric and was really excited to get started on it but I wasn't sure how big I was tracing and it's to big, I'm glad I decided to test it first...

    Oh Robert I got the star I'm just having issues with the size you don't need to go through all that trouble. When I open that email you sent me the first time it shows 164% it it looked to big so I downsized it to 125% and its still to big and I don't know how much further do I need to downsize it to make it work for me and that's what I was needing to know.:-))

    It is nice to see how the stars coordinate with the santas. This will be a goregeous keepsake quilt.

    Woohoo Teresa! You did an awesome job. PM me on how you did it.
    I would love to know an easier way.
