    Cute PDF is the program I use to make PDF's, it's great, just like a virtual printer only instead of a hard copy it asks you for a file name and saves it to pdf.

    I've done the pdf's for foundation piecing, and another set for templates. These are for 12" finished blocks.

    **note: for anyone printing the templates, one piece has split over two pages, there was no way around it, but it prints with a line of tiny little dots where the two have to join, so you can make sure that you get it matched exactly.**

    I haven't actually made one of these yet, but will be locking myself in my dungeon tomorrow to have a go.

    I have a vision in my head of scraps of my kid's favourite outfits over the years made into these blocks, what an awesome way to remember and hang onto their childhood.

    I forgot to ask Pam what method you used, did you rotary cut them or print templates?

    You're a doll for working out these patterns and sharing them with us. There are so many possibilities for personalizing them. And I like the suggestion someone had to use your child's outgrown clothing to make the blocks. Thanks a bunch for sharing.

    I printed the templates and marked around them. I have some template material around here somewhere. Thanks for doing the PDFs. I'll have to try the 12" blocks.

    What size did you do?

    Sorry... I just assumed that 12 was kind of standard so did them all at that.

    the blocks the lady posted are 8 inches and i believe pam did them at 8 inches.

    i think if you reduce the size to 8 inches the pattern won't fall off the pages.

    Please remember when printing the templates, etc, out to make sure you have your printer set to not scale the image to fit.

    Most printers have some kind of option that says "shrink to fit to printable area" or something similar. Make sure it's NOT checked. :-)

    Pam did the hard work... she designed the pattern. :-) I just converted the file to a pdf format so it could be shared.
    But I might just take that rest anyway! lol :-)
