Need recommendation for 'Fill Stitch Overlap' setting

I have a 150mm tall letter that will be sewn on faux white fur. I practiced on a sample, adding a border on the top half & leaving it off on the bottom part.
I think the satin border adds a nice finish. (and thank you Antony; you were right, I didn't need the knockdown stitches since overall columns were pretty wide)

Anyway, on to my question ....
One can clearly see the area where the tatami fill comes together. The setting is currently set to 1 (which according to the manual means there is no overlap). I haven't had the occasion to really mess with this setting before. What setting would you all recommend for this design & fabric?

Is it possible to have too much overlap and thereby cause it to stand out even more?

I've attached screenshot of my workspace along with photo of my test sewout.

Thanks!

Hi Pascale,

They look like gaps for me. I am wondering if it will help by increasing the Overlap to 2 and/or adjusting the Stitch Angle a little bit. Would you like to share your design here?

Thanks,
Hong

I would say most customers wouldn't notice any "gap" in your actual sample.

Sure! Here is the design.
Adjusting stitch angle ... I hadn't thought of that.

You also should check the underlay and even topper. You are sewing on Faux fur. That has a tendency to walk around a little, I always use a manual underlay or a double tatami on single large letters. That prevents it from walking as it is sewn. You also should look at the start/stop settings. Many times you can improve the results by relocating them. Lastly, if this is just a single job I would not be concerned about trims. If start/stops improve the results but increases trims, live with the trims.
