I am really happy how it turned out. I love the colours. But it wasn't an easy journey...
Surprisingly the handstitching part of it went quite well. Of course, there was lots of redoing involved and it took ages, but I really, really enjoyed it. In fact, I was a bit sad when it was done...
I had issues attaching the freezer paper. It took me forever! And the ripping off, wasn't fun. I am afraid I sometimes pulled a bit too much and it ended up in untidy stitches.
Unfortunately I had problems with my starch. It left really nasty stains on my solid (Kona sage) behind. So I redone it in Kona aloe without any starch and it worked as well. BUT the corners are not as sharp as they are supposed to be. Basically my outer corners are round now... :)
Mitered corners are beautiful. In general. Not mine. They are all over the place. And the fabric turned out really wonky around it... Shame. That's why the last boarder was attached just squared up (if that's the right term?!).
Overall. I am really happy how this first part of the Modern Medallion turned out. I love the floss and all the colours. And all my little mistakes make it more personal, right?
Happy sewing everyone.
