I did something a little different this time in the digitizing and trimming. I scooted the decorative stitch out a bit and didn't trim the fabric as closely to see if I could get a better looking cover stitch. Remember, I'm hand trimming these appliques rather than using the Bernina Cutwork Tool. This makes half or more of the decorative stitch off of the stitched applique, but still keeps applique fabric under the stitches...well that was my intention, anyway. Most turned out pretty good, but I'm still not satisfied. Will I ever be??? Maybe by the time the 12th BOM is done.....Ya think??? LOL
