Could you smooth around the animals and carefully stitch around, doing same with wording, then gently arrange tucks where the puckers are and use a decorative stitch on top of the tucks. An odd solution might work.
Kind of like a crazy quilt effect.
You could test it by pinning before doing any sewing.
Wonderful job, sorry for your problem, that hurts.
I would rip the satin stitch. Smooth the material as best as you can. Square the coaster and then use binding. Good luck. Let us know what you decided to do and if it worked.
The part for my embroidery machine bobbin winder has finally arrived ,so I will have a few days to decide what to do.
There is about 10,000 sts in each mat.
Just a thought, but maybe take the binding off - if it has not been quilted yet. Then iron really good them put binding back on. Know it is a pain but would save them as they are really Cute. Good luck
Thank you.It isn't bound but embroidered satin stitch edge
I would stitch around the outside of the motif after smoothing it out and pinning it well. Then stipple around the outside of your outline. That may save them.
I have never stippled very well.I was wondering if I did this using the stippling stitch on my machine ,would I create creases (small tucks ) because the surface isn't flat.
I'm not sure. I always just freehand.
Looks like the Batting shrunk. I don't think anything would help.
What I would do is cut off the edge stitching and put it on a background piece. That way you can save the printed picture. I know it is not how you wanted to do it but these prints were not cheap and it would be a save.
I never wash my batting never even thought about this happening. I feel for you.
Thank you.It was hard enough to cut each print from the panel ,so it was centered because the panel was not cut exactly even along the top & bottom edges.
Could cut around the beagle & re do it but there isn't enough room around the cats to do it ,without losing the writing
All so Beautiful!!!Pity about the creases.....Big job well done!!
I spray my batting on all small quilting and embroidery projects. It does not move during embroidery and quilting. The other option is to quilt a grid and then add embroidery. If you cannot digitize, there are free grids for different hoops for free on the internet. Check Hatch in Africa and Kiwi Kreations. I pre-grid or meander all backgrounds first. Hope it helps.

I am not a quilter but I think it is the batting causing a problem. Or maybe the backing? I will be interested in the answers you get.
Thank you ,it is definitely the batting.
I don't think there is anything you can do to fix at this point. Sorry. Hugs. Nan W
Thank you,that is what I thought.
