How to resize your templates quickly.

Patterns aren't always the size we want, but this isn't a problem - we can solve it simply by adjusting the scale of the design (printing percentage).

It's worth noting that the difficulty increases when we reduce the size of our patterns because the pieces become too small. And when you enlarge them, they won't fit on the sheet, so you'll have to splice or print them on a larger sheet at a copy shop.

Whatever you want, follow the percentages in the resizing chart

How to use the chart:

For example, if you have a 12" x 12" block and want to print it at 8" x 8". In the row, the original size of the block goes to 12", and in the column, the desired size goes to 8". Cross the row and column and get the value of 67%. Now go to your print box, select the USA letter size (8.5" x 11"), and set the size to 67%. Your pattern will be printed to the desired size.

If the pattern is rectangular, you must choose one side to resize and check the size in the other direction. For example, you have a 16" x 12" block, and you want the largest measurement to be 24". Go to the table, in the 16" row and 24" column, get 150%. Now look in row 12" which column has 150%, which will be 18". So if you print at 150% your block will be 24" x 18".
