The satin stitch is a decorative stitch that often is used to border appliqued pieces.  The stitch is actually a zig zag stitch with zero stitch length.  Some sort of stabilizer is usually needed when making this stitch as it has a tendency to “pull up” the fabric around the stitching.  It’s a good idea to experiment with scraps of fabric before committing to your project’s fabric.
