« Back to Glossary Index

A method of adding dimension to an object creating the depth and height to be increased from the surrounding quilt layer. The traditional method was to cut an opening in the back of the quilt, stuff with wadding, and stitch closed creating a freshly damaged quilt. More modern techniques involve applying a secondary layer of batting prior to the final quilting, eliminating a damaged quilt backing. Stipple work is often stitched around the trupuntoed image to draw more attention to the heightened shape or object.
