It was fun to chose the yellows and oranges from my stash. Even the center dotted fabric and the green leaf sashing was in my stash! I need to look through those drawers more often!
I used Darlene Epps book for some inspiration! I liked the look of this Madeline design. Of course, it didn't look like this when I got done with my interpretation!
I used black Bottom Line (60wt Superior Thread) in the bobbin, and King Tut on top for the sashings! Once I got in a rhythm, it became a lot of fun!
I think you can see the design better on the reverse. But the busy dotted background really keeps the black stitching from being distracting!
