Simplifying your options.

Have you ever wondered why so many designs have soooooo many options?

Well, people like options. 

No. Really. They do. 

And I do too. 

Take this fun #1 Racing Flames design. 

 I love that I have the option to put in two different colored flames fabrics. 

Most of the time. 

Sometimes simpler is better.


I wanted to do something different with the #4.

 There go my placement stitches!

And *gasp* I'm putting only ONE fabric down for ALL of the flames!

Is this even possible?

Why YES, it is!

You can either stitch the second placement line on top or skip it altogether.

 Move on to your tackdown lines and then trim.

 Look at that! 

Only one piece of fabric for BOTH flames!

I still used two different threads for my satin stitch. 

Options. Remember?

And I LOVE the outcome!
