I notice from time to time that members are using machine embroidery to embellish or create blocks for a quilt. For those of you who do use machine embroidery, what type of fabric do you find best for a project of this type? For instance, I just purchased 16 designs showing ladies wearing fashions from the 1800s through to the 2010s. I would like to use these designs in blocks to construct a quilt for my granddaughter. Would kona be better because it is thicker? My main issue is to prevent puckering because it looks as if these designs are quite stitch intensive. Thanks for any advice!
