In some ways this is easier to stick the trapunto shapes on the back of the top, but not on this quilt. When I've done it this way before, it's not been on a quilt where the trapunto cutting will show on the front. Even that would not be too great a problem if the shapes weren't so large, particularly those big feathers which go round the corners on the border. I'm finding I have to stick one or two down then wait a good ten minutes for it to dry enough so I can move to another area. Love these Scotch glue sticks from Costco. Although they say permanent, they do wash out. With the ironing board set up so I can watch the tennis at Wimbledon, it's quite a good way to spend the afternoons.
