Highlight backstitch border

Has anyone completed the backstitch border over one? I'm doing this on 32 count and I don't see a good way to do the "arch" border over the sun. Any suggestions on how to do the curve over one?

  1. I am stitching over one on 28ct fabric. Although I have not done the backstitched arch yet (I will probably do that last), I plan to use short diagonal backstitches in the area between threads 18 and 30, going from point to point, and long stitches between threads 30 and 80. The same on the opposite side. The horizontal and vertical stitches shouldn't be a problem. I'm not sure how smooth of an arc we're going to get, but I don't see any other way to stitch this arch, regardless of whether you are doing it over one or over two.
