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!
