A true celebration of everything horticultural and British the Chelsea Flower Show is an event I look forward to every year. As you know I love my garden, so seeing an abundance of beautiful plants, flowers and exciting garden designs is pure joy. If I am lucky I actually get to go but watching it on telly is almost as good!
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.
