There is a plethora of patriot quilt blocks that tempt me. Wouldn't you know, I would love to make a block I found & it is an 11 1/2" and I need it to be 12 1/2.

I would love to be a mathematical genius but I'm not.
Is there anyone who can help? I appreciate it.

    To go from an 11" block to 12" block you would set your printer on "enlarge 109%". To go from 12" to 13" you would set printer to "enlarge 118%". To get 12 1/2", I believe you split the difference (4 1/2%) and "enlarge 112 or 113%" (most printers don't do 1/2's or decimals). Try this. Hope this helps. I found a great conversion table on:

    Yes, use 2 1/2 x 12 1/2 strips and 2 1/2" sqs. for nine patch should do it.
