What are you most proud of? That I broke the rules already by using red thread (a no no!)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? In hindsight, for a small project like this, I should have just started with one large background. Trying to match the stitching lines in a seam is close to impossible. If this was a quilt, I could have easily gotten around this issue by sashing but I like the interaction of the pattern so I chose to let the lines be where they lay (oh my, what WOULD the quilt police say???) Do I care?

Looks great Carol. I like the idea of cutting it up and making new geometric shapes...........

I really like this modern Pillow - Great Work - It took me a long time to find it. How are the pictures displayed in the grouping? What is the quickest way to find one when you mention it? Thanks much.

Thanks for you kind words. I'm not sure how this works so I suggest you email to see what they recommend.

Was this done with the circle attachment

No, I just drew the lines using a pencil and compass and followed the line with stitching.
