Step one was the starbursts and to make sure they line up correctly.
Step two was the red background. This was broken down into 2 steps too. I used all different methods of laying my thread. My finger, a needle, my trolley needle, and my BLT. I love using the trolley needle but the BLT REALLY separates the threads giving better coverage. I'm just not that comfortable holding it. I guess I need some more practice.
Tonight I will tackle the white diamonds - just finished ironing my neon rays!
