would have a place in the yellow border that was made up of 4.25” tall half-square triangles and a 2.5” straight piece. The leafy motif would give me heavier stitching, be a better contrast to the vines in the center portion and bridge/mask the piecing line that joined the triangles to the straight border piecing.
I did need to mark a few registration lines to keep things going evenly. A couple of appropriately sized items from the kitchen (for the curved lines), a cardboard cut oval and my Frixion pen would do perfectly.
I know that there’s been some discussion about the Frixion pen’s tendency to leave a “ghost”/light grey mark after heat is applied but, even if it does, it will not be seen on the yellow fabric and it will be covered by the thread stitching. So, onward to the marking……………………
Now, on to the other 3 sides of this border…………..
