B is for Book - Work on B

Progress made on the B. I used the grid brocade pattern to guide where I would couch a thick gold thread on the blue. This is a reference to what is called a diaper pattern - usually on the inner portions of a letter.

I also free machined with thinner gold thread round the pattern in the red brocade.
Then used a gold braid to go round the outline (inline?) of the cut out areas of the blue. I will use the same braid to go round the outline when I stitch it to the silk background.
