It may help to use the straw method TurboBeads uses in his ladder stitch tutorials (cutting a straw and putting it through the beads) It would help somewhat with stability.

The beads tend to curl and bend over one another when you try and do a ladder stitch with a higher bead count. Plus it's not as sturdy as the peyote stitch and probably more of a hassle to put together. But if you must do ladder stich for a panel, use a thick string that takes up the majority of the bead. The thick string helps the beads stay in place
