Hi you all, What does the batting need to be thick for the satin-material to become more fluffy? If you understand what I mean

You really need to do some testing of different batting combinations to see if you get the look you want. As mentioned below, where the crosshatching is dense, the fabric is not going to puff up. Stretch in a fabric can go up and down, side to side, and diagonally. This can add puckers. However, I do know people ME on satin. You can post this on the Quilting Board and see what they advise. It's a very busy Board and they usually advise using two layers of batting.

The more batting you use, the better the puffs will be. The fabric does not really matter that much. I have done many quilts blocks and used many different fabrics.

I agree with AnnaJar, the look will be more puffy with stretch material.

Saw something like this on another site. The digitizer used 4-way stretch material for the top to achieve a puffier look.

This looks lovely as it is. One thing to remember is that the more quilting stitches you put in the flatter it will look For example, look at your outer flowers and they pop out nicely but where all the cross hatching is it looks flat. Personally I think the different dimensions add depth. Keep experimenting until you find the look you like.

Some use the Trapunto technique to get more thickness or depth in the design. You use two layers of batting (could be cotton/wool or cotton/polyester, or wool/polyester or others).

I would try 2 layers of batting. Or if you have some Polar Fleece try as an experiment for thickness.
I have some thick poly stuff that my machine does not like.

One of the digitizers for designs like this said to use a thick loft poly batting. Some people had difficulty embroidering with it and used a lower loft. I just got my scuba fabric and am ready to try my first block.
