This time, I thought I would try using a regular, wide zig zag stitch to attach the collaged fabric pieces.
I did not use the darning foot for free motion. I set my machine for a wide zig zag stitch.
This went quick, much quicker than when I am using the free motion and creating texture.
I changed the thread several times.
Here it is all stitched down. Next, I will add the block printing.
