I decided to just use a piece of white fabric. I used rayon thread. It broke every 2 inches. I changed to an embroidery needle. More breakage. I said @#)(*#$)(* it and went back to Isacord thread.
Although I don’t by any stretch of the imagination think I excelled at this mini-quilting technique, I will definitely be doing more of it. And, most likely purchasing some of Cindy’s e-books as I think they will help me develop my doodle quilting style.
