Trapunto is Italian for “to quilt” and I added “with a punch!” It is also called stuffed technique due to the process of stuffing or adding extra layers of batting to the design. I find it easier on the long arm machine because I am adding an extra layer of batting to an area as I roll the quilt on the frame. Then I add a design and micro quilt around it. This really made the butterflies pop up off the fabric. This quilt has poly batting then I added another poly batting to the butterfly squares.
