What materials did you use? muslin, stabilizer, embroidery thread

You did a really nice job with digitizing the design elements. There is a wrinkling on the fabric that looks like it could be a stabilizer or fabric issue. Share a bit on the type of stabilizer used, and whether the fabric was cut on the grain or on the bias. It's my job to ask, as I want your design work to be showcased on the items you stitch on. Thank you for sharing and all of us have had a wrinkle or two. Cookie ;)

I used a very thin muslin cut on the grain and a lightweight cutaway. I honestly didn't think the design would stitch well, so I was careless with my hooping. I plan to make a few adjustments to the design's density as the flower petals were bulletproof and I'd like the feathering to be more dense. I will get it stitched and stabilized and post a picture this weekend if my teething baby allows me time to stitch!

The colors are beautiful, too.

Congratulations! I have yet to tackle the digitizer. You must feel very proud of your achievement.

It's really intimidating at first. I've been digitizing for about a year, but mostly applique and small feltie designs. I am super excited about every new technique I learn! I am a bit of a geek about embroidery. I read, study, do everything to learn as much as I can. I really love it!

Design looks great!!! yes we all have had the dreaded wrinkles. Your seem to add a little texture to your design. They are no mistakens just learning experiences.

Your design looks quite lovely and you should be very proud of yourself. Now that you know the design is good (except for the few things you plan to adjust), you can be more careful with your hooping and make a truly gorgeous project. Yea!!!!
