Many of us growing up with have been to Scouts or Guides. This fabulous organization, which is part of the fabric of our society, helps nearly half a million young people a year understand and learn how to enjoy the great outdoors and despite being over 100 years old remains as relevant today as ever. Truly something to celebrate.
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.
