March TIF II

I'm quite pleased with the clarity of the reverse machine applique, but the large letters have left more negative space than I had imagined. Also, the letters are quite 'baggy' and will need some stitching to anchor them, so the original quilting plan has to be abandoned! I'm going to sample stitching the text from which these letters were taken across the full width of the piece. If I can match the colour of either of the fabrics then at first glance, it could give interesting glimpses of the text - without revealing the whole.

This looks interesting, Linda, I'm looking forward to seeing how you combine the quilting of the original text and the smooth clear lines of this piece. Or have I misread your intentions?
