    Thinking of Starting Over

    There are 20 blocks in this, and I have about 4 done. I don't like that the template was not large enough for the blocks. I thought I would put something else in the little corners to fill it in, but now I think I want to take the stitching out and just do something simple. This has been a UFO now for several months, and I want to get back to it. I am wondering if I would like you to pull me back or tell me to go ahead and do another pattern for my stitching.

    I'm not a pro, but I think if you extended this pattern, echo it if you will, you would have what you're looking for. Just a suggestion.

    yep, you could echo that design. or maybe do something in the near by ones that fall into those blocks.

    I have used that pattern myself. It looks great. Maybe do some cross hatch behind it.

    I think CJsews has a really good idea. Crosshatching would fill the block up. It would look good.

    Or a smaller design over the corners where the blocks meet. Large enough to fill in the block.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    You can copy your stencil and enlarge it to suit your needs. I've also done it at Staples onto clear plastic which I just had to cut out
