I need advice for this 11" x 11" piece of quilting to be attached to a quilted background. My problem: I attached the photo transfer image of my Grandmother to a lace handkerchief and a piece of wool felt. When I did the Kantha stitch on the surrounding hankie, the wool felt puckered and made the image buckle. If it weren't for the bead border, I would just make a new image that would fit the space. I don't want to do that, so if anyone has any suggestions for how to remedy this problem, I would be eternally grateful.

Thanks to Carole K of the UK who gave me a great suggestion: stuff the portrait with polyester batting and give it a trapunto effect. I had to use cotton balls, but it worked. I'll post a photo later.
