|I used the Leaves Galore ruler and a chalk pencil to create the curved spine.|
After drawing the spine, I drew a couple tendrils, then marked an outside border to stitch up to. The backing fabric is not as large as the front, so I needed to be careful where to place this line.
I used the walking foot to create a border next to the center, then stitched and echoed the spine. I've started the feathers, but decided it was a good time to stop for the night since I ran out of thread in the bobbin.
