I need to embroider a large letter (6-8" tall) on a Christmas Tree skirt (it's a faux fur fabric). I will add a knockdown base, but not sure what setting to use for the actual letter. Thinking of using a Tatami fill (rather than a satin split fill) with or without flexisplit.

What settings have you all used to get a nice fill for wide columns?

Thanks in advance!

For large letters, I generally go for tatami. (Unless being specified.)

If letter is large, I don't see the need for knockdown stitch. (Knockdown stitch does make the fabric harder.) My 2.2 cents (incl 10% GST) .

Thanks Antony ... would you use a single stitch angle or would you alter stitch angle to match the curve of the letter?

With large letters in tatami, no multiple stitch angles (i.e. single stitch angles).

Sometimes, I even add an outline, make it look a bit like appliqué.

However, if the letter is large, but thin (something like ultra thin style), I would go for satin (with its regular multiple stitch angles.)

Thank you Antony. I like the outline around large tatami filled letters as well! I think it finishes off the edges nicely.
