I use water soluble thread for the second stitching around the appliqué. The first being to secure the appliqué to the quilt. Either by hand or machine. The second to sew the trapunto batting to the applique. Trim away excess batting. Then make the sandwich and quilt as desired. Wash the quilt and the water soluble thread disolves. This eliminates the thread build up around the appliqué.
