(see the bottom of the post for printing help!)
You may notice a few blocks are different from the original pattern. Some of the blocks were questioned by some of you as being “to complicated for beginners” I have replaced these blocks with more simple ones, No curved seams, No appliques, No set in seams. The total for the fabric requirements should still be just fine, however you may need to switch some colors around! I have taking all your suggestions into consideration and done my best to make the patterns as easy as possible for everyone but please remember the patterns are yours to use and to change to your sewing preference. I do hope they are now “simple enough” for everyone to understand. They are not shown with strip piecing as a piecing option as you are only making one block at a time and strip piecing does not work well for that format. But if you want to strip piece them then go for it. For that matter if you want to English Paper Piece each block then have at it, the choice is entirely up to you!

A couple of tips for you if you are going to use the templates.
- If you are going to use a template be sure to double check all your pieces for the block you are working on to make sure they match the sizes on your template sheet. If nothing else rotary cut your piece then check the size by just laying it on top of the same piece on the template sheet. This will help to insure all your pieces will fit together correctly.
- When printing a PDF template sheet you MUST be sure it prints at Actual Size! to be sure of this here is what you need to do:
– I am going to base this info on you having just opened the PDF file in the web browser and not downloaded it. However the step by step will be pretty much the same even if you have download the file. Also I am using the Google Chrome web browser. If you are using a different web browser things, such as locations of the print icon might be a bit different for you but it should get you by enough to get your templates printed.
#1 – Click on the File you wish to print and let it load up (it should open in a new tab on your web browser)
#2 – Click on the print icon on the upper right of your screen This will open the print dialog box. in the Google Chrome browser this will open a pop up for you to set up your printing. DO NOT HIT PRINT YET!
#3 On the left side of this pop up you will see a list of settings. Near the bottom but not clear to the bottom you will see a line with a box next to it that says “Fit To Page”. Make sure that there is NO CHECKMARK in this box. i repeat, there should be NO CHECKMARK IN THIS BOX! IF THERE IS A CHECKMARK (or a x) then click on the box to clear the mark. The box MUST BE CLEAR!
#4 Double check that the box is still clear….
#5 Now you can click Print!
