    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Any tips? Tricks?
    To tell you the truth, I'm pretty impressed with my satin stitching as well, especially since my tension went wonky on my twice during this project.

    I think the satin stitching has a raised appearance because there are 5 layers to this project - the applique pieces, the fabric the appliques are bonded to, the steam-a-seam I used to bond the appliques to the fabric, the lightweight fusible batting I added, and the backer piece (I brought the backer piece over to the front to make the binding).

    I also used embroidery thread for the satin stitching, which is a little more refined and has a very high sheen to it. My zig zag setting was 2.0 width x 0.3 length on the leaves, and 2.5 width x 0.3 length on the circle.

    Ah, so you did the SS to the quilt sandwich.
    Maybe that had something to do with it.
    But you obviously stopped and started and turned in exactly the right spots.
    I don't embroider so I don't have a lot of that type of thread around but I will try it next time.

    I have to say, because it looked so good, I originally thought it was digitized and done on an embroidery machine - or whatever the process/terminology is.
    I've seen Patty Thompson do it that way.

    Anyway, very impressive.

    Thanks for the tips!

    Thanks for the compliment! Patrick Lose has a lot of projects that are digitized machine embroidery, this just happened not to be one of them. If it had been, I would definitely be making more.

    Here is a sample of a design he does that is digitized machine embroidery. Unfortunately I didn't know that at the time I did it and so did it on my sewing machine. I've since purchased the embroidery design so I could do it on my embroidery machine.

    Very pretty, you can tell that you took a lot of time and done a fantastic job. Is the pattern still avialable, if so where can you get it?
