Easy and simple patterns come with actual original size templates instead of measurements in numbers in order to help new quilters and inexperienced to avoid mistakes in measurement. To make the size as the template, just print it on card pater (easily available at newsagents) and cut the templates up and use them as guides.

To make a larger or smaller version of the design, just take the design (save it on a USB drive) to your local printer (e.g. Officework or Kinko) to print it at a reduced or enlarged size without messing up the proportions. 

For how to piece or applique instructions, get my book/dvds to learn the techniques properly. But most designs here are designed to be easy in techniques, so if you know how to sew straight on a basic sewing machine, that is enough to make a stunning quilt.
