Photography and advice

First, isn’t this a cool photo?

Second, notice how I’m cutting just inside the dotted lines? I do that on purpose because after the inlay is done I’ll need to stitch around it. The dotted line is my stitching line, NOT my cutting line. If I cut directly on the dotted line and then stitch on the edge, the entire design “grows” a little. This can be fatal for a design with multiple small elements close together or one that’s very close to the side seam.
