“X” pieces and circles all cut out and fused onto the black/grey/white background panel.
I’ve just picked up some black with grey and white on white fabric for a 3 1/2″ border all around. I have to add the border before stitching all the “X”s and circles in place because I may want to pin stitch the elements in place using the batting instead of using a layer of stabilizer. I will have to run some samples with/without batting, rayon embroidery thread/Sulky variegated thread to see which combination works most easily and gives the look I’m after.
So tomorrow – the border (with mitred corners).
