    If you have ever wanted to enlarge or reduce the size of a quilt block by using a copier and couldn't figure it out you will appreciate this link.

    To reduce a pattern (for example, 18" to 15"), divide 15 by 18 and then multiply by 100; this equals 83 percent.
    To reduce the size, divide the size you want it to be by the size you have. To enlarge, divide the size you have by the size you want it to be. Multiply both answers by 100 to get the percentage to enlarge or reduce."
