Taking pics on a windy day does not help and quilting will make everything lay down nicely- (there's still some stabilizer in the back...)
So this was the original design. Decided to simplify and take out all piecing.
This is the final stitch out! Shout out to Lisa Shaw & her Craftsy Class "Big Embroidery in a Small Hoop." I took it a few weeks ago and that's what gave me the idea to just take a 24"x24" fabric piece and mark out the sections and then use her method for placing designs. OH MY WORD - it has really just opened up so many possibilities! If you have stalled or just not inspired with your embroidery, totally recommend her class!
Huge fan of Sarah Vedeler's work, so I tried some motif stitches - love the texture! (Also really enjoy her use of color!)
Little blurry, but here is the center. Only had to create the one design and then just rotate the fabric and layer. It stitched out fine!
I love side shots - Have to get rid of my markings now and layer and quilt!
