Love the decorative stitching. What a great idea and it looks beautiful. Good way to take advantage of all those beautiful stitches our machines can make! Great job!
Darns answered:
Thank you - thought the block was kind of plain before
beeboop71 asked:
Did you draw a line to follow? It's so perfectly even!
Darns answered:
Thanks - I did draw a line 2" from center square and then used the presser foot width for the other lines of stitching.
