Please note: When downloading and printing a PDF that has size-specific material such as templates, applique patterns, and quilting motifs, you must turn the scaling to "off" to prevent your system from defaulting to settings that may shrink the page and distort sizes. In the print dialog box, look for the drop-down menu next to "Page Scaling." You'll have a few options depending on the computer system you are using. Choose "None" before you hit print. And always make a test unit or block before cutting into expensive fabric.
