Susie, I placed my house on the stripes with the stripes going up and but I placed the pattern wrong so my house came out to tall making it real close in placing the windows and the roof hangs over more than it should. BUT, I didn't see all this until I stitched the house down and added the door. Wasn't about to take it all off so just went with it House looks a bit like a Circus tent. Oh well live and learn. So getting to the point of your question, maybe you have turned your house pattern up when it should be sideways. Just a thought.
Thanks, Bonita! I will have to take another peek at it to see where I oops'd. I still think it has to do with printing to scale, or something like that.
