Vol 2 - Project 13 - Quilted!

A shot at Trapunto.  Only 8 blocks were done this way as it was my first go at the technique.  I enjoyed the process though and will be doing more of this.

Simple but pretty
I padded the four corner blocks and the four centre blocks, the rest were the same design without the padding.  The borders got a feather/cable treatment.  The quilt has a cotton batting and a cotton damask backing, with a lovely polished sheen to it.  Very classy!


A bit of stipple to pop that design up

 Compare the padded block with the unpadded one - I know which one I prefer!
Polished Damask Cotton Backing

Feathered Cable around the borders



  1. Gorgeous! Thanks for the step by step pictures on the trapunto. I hope someday to try this technique.

    Cheers, K

  2. What lovely quilting. You have really come a long way with machine quilting. Harriet and Carrie must be so proud!
