    Printing for paper piecing question

    For anyone paper piecing, is your quarter inch a tiny bit larger? When I’m trimming up the finished building, I line up the 1/4 inch (broken line) on my ruler and seem to be cutting off the whole solid line,
    am I explaining this correctly?
    if this has previously been answered, I apologize and please send me there.

    Sandi C, I would use the sewing line as the important line. If your printer gave you an exact 1 inch square, the lines should be
    accurate for the correct size house. When you align houses to put them together use pins in the sewing line to sewing line even
    if your seam allowance does not seem exact.If the sewing lines are stacked on top of each other and you sew on it, it should give you the correct size house. That is what I would do. You might get a different idea from Barbara. HelenW

    Sandi, Have you already removed the paper from your houses? Can you post a picture of the back of what you
    are having problems with?

        I have finished piecing the Paper Piecing Sampler. Pieced a back and used the Lantern block as the label.
