    I have the Quest Plus quilting machine and while watching how to do the applique, in the second Episode was interesting the only problem I was wondering is..what is the satin stitch set number that I use at to or that you used. It would helpful if I knew what to set the machine at. or there of.

    • Hi Jean – I always set my machine at 2.5mm stitch width and .2 stitch length (or the shortest you can go and stitch without getting stuck!). On projects with more curvy lines, I’ve used as low as a 1.5mm stitch width for smoother curves and easier turning.

      I hope this helps and thanks, very much, for your comments!
