After Jacob went home today I got busy and managed to get a feathered heart stitched out on a practice square. It came out pretty good, especially since I haven't done any of these in quite some time. I selected the one I wanted from my stencil collection in EQ7 Quilting Design Series, printed it out to the size I wanted, pinned the paper design to the sandwich, and started stitching. I managed consistent small stitches so the paper tore away easily once the stitching was done. I think for my project that I'm practicing for I'll use a solid red Aurifil 50 thread rather than the variegated version I selected. With the overlaps, this doesn't look as clean to me. Good thing I practiced!
Carol Doak's foundation paper, which is very lightweight and is easy to remove after stitching. Now to start on the real one!
Still hooking up with Leah Day's FMQ Friday. Once again, Happy Friday!
