For the project you will need:

  • Sulky Puffy Foam, 2mm thick (see
  • Quilter's tape,
  • Patterned fabric for the sashing and borders,
  • Solid cotton fabric for the base,
  • Solid light-weight cotton (such as batist) for the topping,
  • Light-weight tear-away stabilizer,
  • Rayon or polyester embroidery threads.
You will also need batting, fabric for the backing and binding.


First make the embroidery of the trapunto designs as described in the instructions.


Trim the embroidered pieces to 6" x 6" squares.

Out of the patterned fabric, cut
four strips measuring 2" x 6"
two strips measuring 2" x 15 1/2"
three strips measuring 2" x 19 1/2".


Using the 2" x 6" strips and the embroidered squares, assemble 2 strips:
square - strip - square - strip - square

Stitch one of the 2" x 19 1/2" strips between the two strips.

Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your working piece over it.

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins. Start quilting. Quilt in the ditch around the squares. Then quilt the sashing and the broders.

After the quilting is finished, press the work from the back side with heavy steam and square the work -- all corners should be 90 degrees and opposite sides should be of the same length.

Finish the raw edges with the binding.

Attach a sleeve, if you want to use the quilt as a wall hanging.
