Does anyone out there use digitizing software to create their quilts?  I am learning Masterworks for my machine and I think it will let me design appliques.  Very steep learning curve..... LisaContinue

Thanks again LeAnne Law for all your help.  I just posted a picture of the panels I embroidered with the stabilizer you told me of.  It worked better than any other.  I think some of it was the design.

I only use Sulky iron on with light designs.  The fusible Floriani does not separate from the fabric after it's been stitched on for a while like the Sulky does.

Thanks  so much LeAnne, I have tried everything I have and now trying Sulky ion on tear away + a tear away.  If that fails I will send for the ones you recommended.  Your turtle is dear. :)

I used a medium fusible tearaway.  I like Floriani's the best.

I just found it here, I was looking on your page instead.  It looks great!

LeAnne, did you use a tear away stabilizer as wee as the Jenny Haskins?  I was not able to see any pictures.

Thanks so much LeAnne!

I have had really good luck with Jenny Haskins Sheer Magic Plus.  It's a sheer fusible that you leave in.  Will need a stabilizer also with it.  I did a very dense Embroidery Library design on quilters cotton and there were no puckers anywhere.  If you can't find the Jenny Haskins brand, try Floiriani.   They might make something similar.  Look for my 9/24/13 post for a picture of the embroidery I did with it (a rosemaling turtle).

.I am trying to embroidery a design 5 times down a strip of Kona cotton. It keep wrinkling no matter how I try it.  I have tried two layers of stabilizer, iron on and tear away stabilizer.  Now I am trying spray on stabilizer and regular tear away stabilizer.  Also tried cut away which wasn't bad, but do not like the effect.  It is for a quilt.
Any ideas??  I am at my wits end.  I really want this to be nice - not just ok.

Beautiful, Joanne.  Not sure if I have that peacock design yet or it's just in my  wish list.  Gorgeous fabric too.  I envy you being able to get together with friends every week to embroider.
