are you satisfied with the level of "poof" you are getting?

Thanks for the how-to on your project. It looks great. What did you use for "puffy" batting, please?

Actually I used a wool batting I had on hand and I'd like a little more poof. I tried 2 layers of the wool but the foot got snagged. That being said, the design is about 5x5 so I might not be able to get much more. I'm going to experiment with a cotton low loft layer on top of the higher loft wool and a bigger design to see what I get.

I'm turning my sister's satin wedding dress into a wall hanging quilt so I need to get this perfect before I move on to the real fabric and yes, I'll be buying extra satin fabric to experiment with as well.

I can't offer advice but love the emb design. Did you digitize it yourself or is it a purchased item?

My method would be to

hoop the main fabric
place batting beneath and stitch the trapunto area
trim excess batting
place more batting (&backing if you like) under and finish stitching

I don't use any stabilizer with batting.

This way you don't have to remove anything from the hoop till done. you may prefer to use a little adhesive to hold the battings in place, but I generally find it all stays put once stitching has begun.
