    My First Shot at Trapunto

    So happy with this - my first real shot at trapunto. I wanted to do a few test runs before I do a big ol' quilt. I'm really happy with the results. I got a little bit of knotting and realized after a way I could have made it easier on myself. Lesson learned!

    All I can say is that polyester batting as earned it's place back in my quilts!

    Wow! I'm really impressed. I've never tried it because it looks hard to do.......! You certainly have the right stuff!

    Thank you guys so much! A1penny - it's not too terribly difficult, but really time consuming. The hardest part so far has probably been controlling those small stitches around the trapunto design. This has really opened up a whole new door for me though, IDEAS ABOUND!!!

    So nice! Congratulations on giving this a try and doing so well at it. I admire it, but have avoided giving it try.

    Oh Jan it's really easy I hope you'll try it! This is machine trapunto, so really it's just time consuming more than difficult. You can do it!!

    HAHAHA - thank you!! You know what? The sparkle is really just a result of the lighting and small stitches. It's a super cheapie polyester embroidery thread from Jo-Ann's...I think it's Coat's and Clark even!!! It's shiny and does sparkle a bit almost once the quilting gets really dense.

    Thank you all so much!!! Debra, no I did not use a book. I actually had played with the technique before on a few projects but wasn't sure what I was really doing. I decided to get brave and just read up on it a bit, get an idea for how I wanted to execute it, and then do it!!! It was totally a learning experience and I will definitely be doing some things differently on the next project...but I'm still really happy with it!
