Captivating both children’s and adults hearts since 1964 Mary Poppins is the quintessential British Nanny, strictly insisting on good manners and impeccable behavior and but unlike most nannies, rewarding it with a touch of magic! The film was a huge influence on me as a child, I made sure my kids grew up with it too and now, with the sequel about to come out, it seems like their kids will also have Mary Poppins in their lives. But whatever your age, I am sure you will agree, you are never too old to have a nanny like Mary Poppins in your life, in fact I could do with her waving her magic wand over me right now!
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. Now we have finalised our quilt layout the blocks 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.
