Does any one have a easy way to enlarge any quilt block, I want to go from a 6 inch to a 12 inch.

if it is printed on paper you can enlarge it using a photo copier. Other than that draw the original to on graph paer and using the grids as a guide you can redraw it that way.

Think it through... Squares all sides =
Triangles a square + b square = c square
mid-point just a workout for the brain... Physics..

If you share with us the contents of your block, a square, triangle etc.. and their sizes right now, we could help translate to 12 inch..
