This quilt was hand appliqued and then the applique flowers and baskets were stuffed for a trapunto effect. While the borders/ major seams were machine quilted, the applique motifs and blocks were hand quilted. The Legacy wool batting was a dream to quilt through and even with heavier thread I was getting about 10 stitches per inch without (hardly) trying.
