What kind of stabilizer do you use when emb. motifs. I am doing it thru all 3 layers that is, after the top, batting and backing are together. What do you find is easiest to remove after it's finished. I usually do my emb., on other things, unhooped with sticky stabilizer. Hooping is so hard but if that is best that is what I will do. I practiced with a sample and I used the fix before and it held all 3 layers together fiine. It's just so hard to peel off the back. Do you wash it after the quilt is finished. Sorry so many questions just trying to find the best way.
