WELCOME to the folks who have checked out our group! I hope you find it informative and just plain fun! You will have to go back to the first page of discussions to find the blocks for January. Please feel free to ask questions, make comments and suggestions. I believe...... there is no such thing as a stupid question!

Oh I am glad you posted this before I started. I am already freaking out over PP and if it came out messed up I would have been ' so over' pp...lol  I will sit back and wait to see what everyone else comes up with before I proceed with Bees and Fields.

Barb- I just measured my B&F printout and it is 6.5" (with seam allowance). When I went to the pattern again I remembered that I had to click on the pattern to get it to show up 100% before printing.  I hope you can figure out your problem. I am going to use scraps to make my first one to try it out before I cut into my patriotic fabrics.

Also--- are you printing out the regular template (that needs 1/4 inch seam allowance  added) or the Paper Piecing template?

I will shut up now... :)

Erin,I did set it to 100 %, Mine always comes up larger . I guess my templates are to small. I 'll go back and try and see if I can readjust the templates Thanks good luck with yours . Barbara

I have printed it out but haven't started sewing yet, I did measure the test square and it is right.  We have to make 2 bees and 2- 4 patch square in a square right?

Barbara, Erin, Leslie, I do not have access to a printer right at the moment, so I have gone back to the paper and pencil and see if I can help figure this out. The Bee & Field Block

Mel I don't know what I fid but I think it me that printed the pattern wrong. I thought I had it set up for 100% which should have made my template the correct size .but I will recheck it . Its not a problem ,I just wish I'd caught it before I used my fabric ..LOL  live and learn ...I'll just have two block  one 12 one 9 inc. I'll  find someplace to put it ..LOL

Barbara,

try drawing the block in EQ and print your templates/pp patterns from there.
