Why have I avoided talking about machine decorative stitching over the raw edges of the vintage linen circles? This is how things progressed for me:
Once I had all my circles cut and glued to my background fabric I began to position them on my design wall in what I considered to be a pleasing layout. (And I forgot to take a pic at this point ☹️) I immediately learned a few things, the first being that there was one circle that while upclose looked fine…from a distance looked dirty/stained. See the first two pics below. Before you scroll to pic 2 see if you immediately spot the culprit circle. Even before you cut fabrics for your arcs, lay out your center block pieces to weed out those that just do not enhance your project.
Don’t begin choosing the various colors for your decorative stitches until you’re comfortable with your fabric(s) layout.
Happy quilting and blessings, Rhonda
