CQ Banner Letters - Y

Another letter I am sending off with the possibility of it being used in one of the new Contemporary Quilt banners.

This is Y.

I found a sample from when I was showing how to enhance printed fabrics with free machine embroidery. The spaces I had filled almost looked like a T, so I filled in a few more of the spaces.

But when I cut it out, I realised it looked more like a Y. So I trimmed it up to be a Y and stitched it onto the black using another programmed machine stitch. I don't recall using this one before. I quite like it because it gives a fine looping pattern which helps to blend an edge into the background.
