Peter Rabbit, Mrs Tiggy Winkle, the Flopsy Bunnies, Jemima Puddle Duck to name just a few. Not only were Beatrix Potters stories charming but her illustrations are something to behold and bring those lovely animals to life. These are stories that were read to me as a child, now I love to read them to my Grandchildren and I can see can see no reason why they will not be doing the exact same in years to come.
When you print out your motifs make sure your printer is set to print same size and not fit to media as this will distort the final size of the block. This block will be 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 ins, cut them 10 ins square to protect the edges. Sharpen your iron-on transfer pencil and draw over the design, place it design side down to the calico and iron. Iron some interfacing to the back and stitch away. Alternatively use a light box or tape your design to a window and trace with a fine pencil onto the fabric, if you use this technique use the non reversed version of the pattern.
