Click HERE to download and print the Crossed Canoes Foundation Pattern.

**You will want to Download the file and then print the .pdf file.  When you print, make sure that scaling is turned off enabling the document to print at 100%.  Take a moment to measure.  The Solid Line along the bottom edge of section A should measure 3".  If you print directly from the Google Docs screen you might come out with a slightly smaller sized block.**

Don't forget to come back and post the link to your blocks so I can see them.  I LOVE to see them!!  Don't have a blog or don't have time to post?  Just email me a picture and I'll get it uploaded.  I’ve also set up a Flickr Group if you’re interested!

I really like this block! Thanks for doing these blocks of the week.

When I went to list mine as done I messed up and ended up doing #3 and #4. The #3 one is not a good one though #4 is. Sorry about that.
Thanks again, Judy
