Hi Suz, finally completed the 29 pieces. I did change a couple of things which may be useful to others too. I was able to purchase heavy weight black stabiliser/ interfacing, one side adhesive which helped. Also med.weight black stabiliser for sewing out. This meant that when the satin stitch edge was carefully cut neither is evident. Also used a little fray stopper around the edges for loose small frays on the edge. I put a small circle of adhesive Pell on in the centre as the curves were a little crinkly, and was able to quilt these pieces to smooth out a bit.
A challenging work but pleased with the result.
Would you tell me if YOU digitised the design so that I can acknowledge your work when/if I am able to enter it in Canberra Quilter’s exhibition. It might not be til next year with the current corona virus situation.
Great idea about the black stabilizer!
