Finally, I'm almost done the meander stitch. It was supposed to be stippling but I couldn't manage to get it fine enough while working with such a large area. If I had done the centre in pieces, maybe...
I just have a few more areas around the edges to do but the bobbin ran out and my arms were tired. This technique is very hard on the arms if you do it on a regular machine. I suppose with a long-arm it would be easy or at least easier.
Next thing I have to do is go around all the stars and the seams inside the stars with red thread. Some of them look a bit puffy. I hope I can stitch in the ditch without any pleats. Then it's on to the border!
