Pull compensation for applique
In most cases, applique requires no special compensation. Applique does not use a large number of stitches. The exception is cases where the number of stitches in the machine embroidery design of more than 50% of the embroidery design or use special types of fill (carved fill for Tajima Pulse software, curve fill..). Also, compensation is used for tissue that is easily contracted.
Pull compensation is critical when working with applique. If the edges of the satin stitch used to cover the applique are not wide enough for adequate coverage, they will eventually result in frayed edges, or the applique will not be held in place. By adding column width, or pull compensation, the coverage will be increased and secure the applique.
