Enlarging or Reducing 6-inch Blocks

Many Piece By Number’s patterns are offered as 6-inch blocks, primarily so that they can easily fit on standard computer printer paper sizes. By using the table on this page, you can take a 6-inch block pattern to your local copy shop and enlarge or reduce the block to the size you need.  Just find the size you would like your block to be in the left-hand column and use the percentage shown. For really large blocks, you will need to use larger paper sizes and/or tape pattern sections together.
