    Do you know of an 8" star block pattern on line? I can find patterns, but they print small & my Mac won't double the size.Need a pattern I can print that is already the right size. TIA

    Thank you, but the PP patterns are 1/2 size when printed on my Mac.A book I have has patterns for 7" 10" & 12....no 8.

    Plainpat - check your printer settings and make sure they are set to print at 100%. Some default settings reduce the size to fit on the paper.

    Yes, my default is set on 100%, but it prints at 50% of whatever PP pattern is shown.Quilter's Cache says Apple products need to print at 97%....don't understand that, but there's lots I don't understand :-(

    Yes, I saved the PDF...bit really prefer to have it on paper. Will ask son in law...he's the puter expert in the family.

    A pattern that is given in PDF format should print at actual size on a MAC if the scaling on your printer is set at 'none'.

    Sometimes they won't print out at the right size, so what I do if it's just a little smaller, I'll draft the pattern out to the correct size, or I'll take the pattern to a commercial copy place and have them enlarge it, little by little.

    I would take it to a print shop and have them do it.
