When Sarah has us cut a 16x13 piece of stabilizer for the background piece it has always fit perfectly. Now when you cut a 16x13 it is 1" short on width and length

The August template for Applique in the hoop and placing it on copy paper is only 15x12 when you measure it between the blue dotted line

Just started my August block and after reading the above comments thought I'd better check my template against June/July. I did not find any issues with the August template. Just a suggestion, when I'm doing any type of embroidery/applique in the hoop, I always allow for adjustment by making my background piece at least 2 to 3 inches larger so much easier to reduce than try to increase.

For people USING an embroidery machine the size of the template is wrong for the background too

I understand what you are saying about re-centering the 15x12 template onto the 16x13 background fabric piece. But I wonder if it will really be noticeable that the design itself is one inch smaller all the way around.

I just sent that same question to Sarah. I am doing applique in the hoop. But no matter how you are doing it the size is no longer 16x13 but 15x12. That has to make it smaller than our other six that are finished.

For people not using an embroidery machine, I noticed that the blue dashed outline for August is a different size than for June and July. It is smaller. The lines defining the outside sashings line up though, so it is just a matter of centering your background fabric using some method other than the blue dashed lines.
