A Grey Tone Miniature

This required some premarking... Love frixion pens and my 6" omnigrid clear ruler. The first angled line is drawn with the ruler.. then the 1/4" line on the ruler helps draw the parallel line/s as desired.  It's easy to free motion stitch these super straight parallels with pre marking.
I enjoy this echoed thread pool approach. Very forgiving and pretty quick.
Sometimes one lets the fabric tell the story...    This fabric had an irregular criss cross grid of lines.   I chose which lines I would stitch and marked them as in the thick of things... it is easy to get "OFF"
  Now trimmed but yet to be faced. "Click on photos for enlarged view .
