|trapunto step 1|
To get the trapunto effect I lay a piece of batting on the top back, over the area where the flowers are located. I am using a wool batting piece for this because it is puffier than the batting I will use for the entire piece.
The next step is to stitch from the front around the flower shapes, very close to the edge of the flower shapes. This photo shows the stitching around one of the flower shapes.

The photo below shows the puffier appearance of the flower area with the batting behind it. Now I'm onto the machine quilting phase!
