Flower Patch Finished!!

Last night I put the finishing touches on the black area in the center. I am really glad I did the black after all, it really makes the flowers pop more. You can see how it looked without the black here. As a size reference it is on 8 inch square Q-Snaps.

I made myself a working copy and her is a photo of what I do with all my working copies when I am done with them.

They are trashed and I either keep, give away or sell the original. Note: I DO NOT keep the copy and give away or sell the original or give away or sell the copy, and neither should you since it violates copyright (at least here in the United States). And yes the page is all messed up to avoid anyone trying to use it. With the loss of the great electronic publication The Gift of Stitching due to blatant copyright abuse I just felt the need. Thanks for listening.

I will get off my soapbox now and hope you all have a GREAT day!!

Beautiful finish! It just pops on the black fabric!
I only keep my originals as well. We have a small shredder at home and I put all my copies through it.

Your finish is beautiful. That black really does make the colors pop!

I trash all my working copies too and usually hang on to the original. I don't know why, I should probably sell or give them away, but instead I hang on to them.
