What advice would you give someone starting this project? I started with a piece that is a bit small (Carol did recommend a fat quarter) but I had this fabric in my stash and it seemed just right for a background. The only oproblem is I think I am starting to overcrowd it a bit so this may not happen with a bigger piece of fabric.

The background is perfect for this kind of stitching. Next time, if work on a bigger piece and it will give you more options!

This piece gave me an idea to take a plain skirt, dress, jacket or shirt and add interest at the hemline.
