**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 C should measure 6".  If you print directly from the Google Docs screen you might come out with a slightly smaller sized block.**

This is beautiful! Thanks for the Paper Piecing template! I really want to scale this to 24" and 36" sizes... I've seen entire quilts made from one of these blocks and they are breathtaking! Maybe I'll use your template to make blocks in visio and scale it up 400 and 600 percent. :-)
