ACK! I just realized in the post below I talk about this being a 9x9" square and it's not! It finishes at 9.5"x9.5". Please translate that when you read 9" below. My apologies. To those that have already printed and enlarged their patterns, it's OKAY to finish this out using 9x9 inch squares. It just means more leftover fabric instead of not enough. I'm sorry for the inconvience.
I'm sorry this post is a couple days late. With it being quarter end at work and March Madness here, I lost 2 days of the week to other stuff.
This week: Pattern preparation and cutting. Say it with me, "yea!"
Preparing the Pattern:
1) Pring this pattern. Use THIS LINK, not the picture below (and disregard the "A" in front of the letters, it means nothing). I've set it up so if you print both pages at your normal printer settings (for normal 8.5"x11" paper), it should come out to look like each sheet pictured in the link. You may have to "download" it first but it should still print as 2 pages.
For my friends using A4 paper (thanks for asking Shevy!) I am not sure how to advise you the best way to print. There is another link below, a JPEG of the entire block but it prints (for me) as a 6"x6" square instead of 9"x9". Here's the JPEG link.
UPDATE: Ms Pyjamas of Australia states she printed this and it came out at 6.75". She then enlarged it by 31% and it came out to be 9" blocks. Just get it as close to 9" as possible without going over too much and make all your blocks the same size and this will still work out with fabric requirements.
Once you print, fold one side on the line and tape the folded part to the matching line on the other sheet. THEN MEASURE IT, please. Each block should print up at 9"x9" with both sheets.
Sections 2 & 4 = 4 1/4 x 8 1/4"
Sections 6 & 7 = 4 1/4 x 8 1/4"
Examples of cut sections for my yellow blocks.
B) You can cut borders now if you don't already have them cut and (please refer to week 1 post for the measurements you need) but I always wait until the end to cut those. I tend to measure better.
That's it for this week, folks. Next week, we will begin piecing. I will post every Monday from here on out! Let me know if you have any questions and please remember to post progress on our Flickr group. :-)
