Marie:

Hi all!   Did anyone have a problem with the template for Kaleidoscope block being small?  My " 1" test square" doesn't quite measure an inch.

Just went back and measured the square size and it doesn't quite make 6 1/2" either.

Marie, were you able to make the adjustment you needed to copy the test block so that it was 1"?  It should work out for you then.

WELCOME to one and all who have joined.  Look at the Media section to see how diffrent one block looks by what fabric choices you make.  It's great!

I haven't worked on it yet Melody.  My July block 1" square doesn't measure up either, it's bigger where the June 1" square is smaller.  Any advice will be appreciated.  I'm printing at 100%.

Marie,

I seem to remember having to increase it to like 105% to make the block a solid 1 inch. increase it and measure it right on the screen to see if it is right. Might be a smidge more.

Thanks Jan.  You do have to fiddle with some of these on line patterns.

Where has everyone gone? I have missed reading all the discussions for the last couple of months. I enjoy seeing and hearing about everyone else's quilting woes and joys, but lately there has been none to read. What is everyone up to? Are you all still making your blocks?

Carol,

I hope and think Melody is still doing this. When we have many group projects on here your time shifts from one to another especially if a new project starts up. I am so behind on this one but still print out the patterns each month. It will get done or in the words of Larry the Cable Guy I will "Get Er Done". lol

Hi Carol,

I am doing the blocks but have not yet done my August blocks as I am making flowers for a wedding cake that I am making.  But I did take a picture of all the blocks that I have completed thus far.  I pinned them to my design wall to get a better idea of colours for the next 2 blocks.

I hope they upload.
