    FMQ, Shadow Trapunto and Curved Crosshatching

    This is my second attempt at Shadow Trapunto. (Geta got me started at this...)

    This piece was made by doing reverse trapunto using black felt on toile, then layering an off-white shimmery organza over the top and FMQing the whole thing. The binding is a mottled grey fabric with red piping. This piece measures 27" x 30". I had fun with this piece and am fairly pleased with how it turned out. Next time though, I'll use a backing fabric that is closer in color to my quilting thread.

    So... what do you think?

    Some of the FMQ from the back; the center is curved crosshatching

    And here's the whole top. In person it is much easier to see the picture on the toile in the center, but I couldn't seem to get a good shot of it with the camera in the evening light

    Wow that is so beautiful. I haven't touched on Shadow Trapunto. The most I ever do is just add a little extra batting to certain parts of a quilt. I really, really like what you did it is totally awesome

    Amazing. I think I like the back even better. It shows your wonderful quilting in such detail. And I really like the thread color on the back. Great job. Is the organza only on the raised trapunto or is it over the entire top?

    Thanks Kitsy! To answer your question, the organza covers the entire top and is held in place by the quilting.
