I feel good about the vine and leaves now. I narrowed the vine to ½” so it curves better and I’m using fewer leaves. Two sides are ready to appliqué down. I would like to find a variegated green that looks good on the vine and leaves so I won’t have to change thread. I probably should have appliquéd the vine before I cut the border length. I hope it won’t shrink too much. I will use an iron on tear away stabilizer and that should help.
