There are many variables which can mean the same design will stitch out differently: digitizer, stabilizer, fabric, tension, needle and thread. Therefore, when you are starting out, or using a new design, it is always sensible to take the time to do some test runs on a similar fabric before embroidering your Cubby.
The best way to hoop a Cubby is by using a 4×4 square or 5″ circular hoop. Everybody has their own technique when it comes to hooping, whether you float, clamp or hoop on either a Cubby, Dumble or Blankie. Here are a few videos outlining some of the most popular methods.
