Machine Trapunto without the lengthy cutting process

You do need to click on these photos to see what I'm talking about.

I get really fed up with cutting away trapunto batting, so I thought I'd find another way. This doesn't work an all quilts but does on some. For this little quilt I needed alternate 1" squares, si Just cut them with my rotary cutter and used a glue stick to hold them on the back.
This one was a little more tricky but the trapunto shape for the feather didn't need to be exact as I was going to micro stipple right up to the edge of the feather to flatten any excess trapunto batting.
And this is how it turned out.

This is the one with the squares.
