Size the half square triangles to 1 1/2″ each.

Make the following half square triangles:

(4) Dark purple and light blue
(4) Dark purple and dark blue
(4) Dark blue and light blue

Remember each set of squares makes 2 half square triangles.

Can anyone tell me how I can make this block to a 10 inch block instead of 8. I want to incorporate it into another quilt I am working on. Thanks
