Rose’s technique for trapunto does not involve threading wool into an area or cutting into the back of a quilt to stuff the area. Her technique is all done before the quilt is layered ready for quilting.

Participants will be able to complete her Daisy project or, if they have completed the machine applique workshop, add trapunto to their Poppies project.
