    Thanks to the three board members for inspiration and tutorial I worked up a cool project today. I wanted to try Trapunto after seeing Joy's Stars & Sunflowers quilt. Shortly after that, SandPat gave us a wonderful tute on how to do it. Soon after, abdconsultant showed us a neat idea to display pretty fabrics in embroidery hoops. So I decided to try my hand at trapunto and display it in a hoop. I had also wanted to try micro-stipling so this was a perfect project for that as well.

    I'm happy with it! It needs to be centered more, trimmed, and I want to put lace or something around it. I had intentionally left some border area un-quilted as a "frame" but I might go back and fill it in with micro stipling. I was OK with the micro stipling but it sure is tiresome!

    This is a great way to learn a new technique and not waste a whole project, yet still have something to show for it. Thanks ladies!!

    This is in an 8" hoop.

    Very nice. That stippling makes my hands hurt just looking at all that work. I'm pretty sure this won't be on my to do list

    It's all machine work Pat - I don't do handwork - even hate finishing the binding but I have to :(

    Even though it's machine work though, it was still exhausting! I took several breaks. If for nothing else to re-adjust my eyes to focus on something more than 18" from my face.
