Annis, I am completely in awe of your creativity. That quilt is so beautiful! You can see that it is related to the original but interpreted in a new way. You're inspiring!

I didn't see a category for month 5 so since mine is paper pieced I am adding it here. I'm not doing the baskets so was able to complete the full border over the weekend. I just needed one more hour today to finish it. I used the same paper piecing technique as my four-patch border tutorial, except the squares for the four-patch blocks were fussy cut from a large floral print and I didn't have to miter the border, which is the only border on this quilt that won't be mitered. The border is 2 1/4" wide and the quilt now measures 18" finished. The flower blocks were made by cutting 4 squares of the same flower, cutting them into 4 pieces, then sewing 4 like pieces together in a pinwheel fashion. I practiced on a few first until I got the finished flowers to measure the right size. I wish the floral fabric had a little of that brighter polk-a-dot pink in it. I will use some of it in the next borders so maybe that will help pull it all together.

Margo, do you have a check mark in the "auto-rotate and center" area? It's directly below the page scaling option. On my printer, if I have that selected and even if I have none selected for scale, I get a smaller page so everything is too small. Gotta love computers and printers...especially when they have a mind of their own.

P.S. Also, check your printer selections. If I go to Page, Setup in my printer setup area, I have similar selections to what Adobe has. If you have this area set to fit-to-page, it may override the Adobe instructions you are trying to set.


Good point JoJo. I've been having trouble with my computer lately and probably need to re-install Adobe. They can certainly be frustrating!!

EDITED: OK...I have re-installed Adobe Reader's latest version and was able to print exactly to scale.

Select Print from the File drop-down menu.
Be sure that scaling is set to "none"
Be sure that Auto-Rotate and Center is NOT checked.
Be sure that Choose paper source by PDF page size is NOT checked.
