    Default Best stabilizer

    I am about to embark on a journey into making a quilt for an anniversary present to my husband.
    It will be made from satin fabric. Any ideas on which type of satin to use? Also, need to what is
    the best stabilizer to use for that particular satin. This will be a full size quilt and the very
    center will have our wedding vows embroidered onto each square. From dearly beloved to
    i present to you mr. & mrs. This may take me awhile maybe even into mext year, but no matter
    it will be made with love.
    So again, what would be the best stabilizer for satin?
    Thanks in advance for any advice

    Cindymae68, I always go to EmbLibrary when I want to know what stabilizer to use. They have great information on all fabric types.

ID:	42414When I made this wall hanging I used polyester satin and an iron on stabiliser, I used metallic thread, so I did not want anything to move. Using the iron on stabiliser there was no puckering of the fabric.

    Off topic, but that is gorgeous, Phillipa! Is it separate pieces stitched together? Where did you get the embroidery design? Did you use one color of thread or multiple colors?

    Bearington it is an Anita Goodesign pattern all in separate blocks and only one colour gold metallic thread used. I used Marathon Gold Metallic thread with brother 60wt under thread and used a gold metallic needle. Slowed my machine down to 300 stitches a minute,
