It has sewn really well using non iron on vilene as stabiliser on the back. I have ( as always ) used Gutermann thread; a green varigated on the top with dark green in the bobbin and a pale blue variagated on the flowers with a dark blue in the bobbin. The background fabric is actually a pale green moda marble, it looks very pale in the photo.
Here is a close up of the stitching - I chose to just straight stitch the applique with a stitch length of 1.9 on the Bernina.
Later I will start on the saw tooth under border then the next 2 borders and then the embellishments. ( so far I am liking it ).
