What materials did you use? I used medium weight tearaway and 100% quilt shop quality cotton fabric for my base and for my applique fabric. Madeira thread used throughout this project.

Looks really nice, can you share what size you increased your satin stitch to? Love the colors, too!

I see a little bit of "tack down" stitches which you can adjust by numerical sizing in editing that one outline. Or you can move the points with the Select, move point tool. For the body, either run them across at 1 degree or so traveling a shorter distance. If the satin is longer than 10mm across then change it to a tatami regular fill at that point.

I added the comments since you asked for feedback but truly it is really pretty! I really like it.

I increased the satin stitching to 3.4. I like a chunkier stitch! I also went back in and changed the body to a fill stitch and it really made a nicer stitch for the body. Will play with that too because I am thinking I want a bit more texture added to it. Here is the stitchout change for the body only. Will continue working on covering up the tackdown stitches. Thanks SEW much! I'm having more fun doing this than should be allowed :)
