Smile question on fill

Hey all!

I'm brand new - I just introduced myself on the forums.

I have a friend who wants a superman patch - I'm trying to figure out how to do all the red in ONE sew - I don't want to break it down into multiple sections because I think it will look bad. I've thought about doing the red part of the outline first and then coming back and doing the "S" so that it overlaps the outside red and use a different direction for the stitches - but that's still 2 sections instead of one - anyone have any ideas?

hello moreenz.... a few different ways to do this one......and depending on size you could do the "red" shape as one solid horizontal fill while stitching out the "yellow" over top in the opposite direction and then proceed with the "black" borders.....or your second option would look good also......if big enough you should void out the red fill behind the yellow shapes if possible.....hope that makes sense and helped you a little.......
