melody, if you can't reduce it in your printer, you can take it to staples and have them do it. how is the block constructed? is it paper pieced, appliqued, pieced. can we see a picture of it?

Usually to reduce a block you would take what you want (8) and divide by what you have (14) then multiply by 100. This will give you a percentage. You can use this number in a copier to reduce.
The same formula applies for enlarging.
8/14 x 100 = 57.14%
melody, I printed this pattern out, would you like me to mail it to you?
Mel, I love that block and may have to try it. You say on picture link that you will be sewing the center circle by hand. Did I understand that right?
