Patchwork & Embroidered Waistcoat: Step 4 - Fronts ...

I've now finished with the embroidery (pre-programmed machine) on the 2 fronts (further close-ups of the stitching are here).

The 1st row (using 3 different stitches - feather, a floral & a cross) is stitched in purple thread on all pieces & worked close to the edge, removing tacking as stitching.

Another row, in pink thread, worked on the patchwork edges to hold the pieces down & flatten them. This time only the feather & floral stitches have been used.

A further pink row on the inside of the lighter colour pieces & using a slightly smaller cross stitch.

Finally, a white row on the inside of the darker colour pieces, again using the smaller cross stitch.
