Q&A with Luya

Cookie Gaynor asked:
Love your first appliqu project. If you prewash all your "cottons" involved in a project then shrinkage will not be a problem. I you didn't then "cold water" and lay it flat to dry.It's really pretty.
Luya answered:
Thanks for your comment! There was a shift between the tucking stitches and the satin border. Now I know why. I noticed yesterday when I opened this project (4x4 pes file) on Embird, there was offset between tucking stitch and satin border. As I am trying with different type of stabilizers between applique and fabric, would you please mention which materials would be appropriate? Thank you
