    I have small circles that i want to applique
    When I finished basting the edges, the circles seem to buckle?
    I have ironed them, but they are still buckled
    Should i remove the basting before hand applique?
    Help

    I always use a stabilizer on the back. Did you do that?

    You also might be pulling your basting threads too tight. Just a thought.

    I always use a template for my circles, leave it in while basting and spray starch...you can use plastic lids or card board cut out templates. Takes a little practice but gets easier the more you do them.
    hope that helps.
