    I just tried one as a sample and it's really really cool!

    Maybe I should have chosen something with a bit fewer little spaces because they're really hard to cut out. It was a lot of fun!

    well, I can't say it was hard, but I'm not sure I was doing it exactly right, I had a really really hard time clipping the extra batting without clipping the organza on top. Plus it was really hard to get right on the edge without accidentally cutting the outline thread.

    I re-did the same pattern but it reverse, like, I traced out my symbol and cut it out of my fabric, like a negative of the last one, and placed it over my batting, then put my organza on top and quilted away. It worked much much better, but I'm not sure I could do that on a big item like a quilt. I'll keep playing around with it, and in a few weeks when the patterns and instructions are out, I'll get those from Geta.

    Melanie, did you sleep last night ? That little piece is great. As you will practice you will gain more experience.

    If you clip the organza, don't be afraid. Organza is so sheer so after quilting the hole will not be noticed ( I know because a few times I clipped mine).

    If you cut the outline thread and that piece of batting don't want to stay in its place, you can stitch it by hand (or use a little glue).

    Geta, love the new pics you added and I'm waiting for your instructions on your blog. I'll mark my calendar. It appears that the technique is just like how I learned to do machine quilt only you use organza on the top. I've also seen shadow trapunto done using regular muslin...of course the bottom fabric is a really strong color and shows through almost as a pastel. Interesting.

    I'm IN LOVE with your bags now!!! The shadow trapunto really lends itself to them.

    Those are so stunning. Makes me feel real insignifint(mispelled). Those are the most beautiful quilts I believe I have ever seen.

    I just caught up with this thread and there was a sharp intake of breath and as I looked I nearly forgot to let it out again. Those are simply stunning and I am waiting with baited breath for your patterns to come out. Think you are going to be a very rich lady someday soon, youso deserve it.

    The handbags are beautfiul too, perhaps I could do a little job like that, not sure about a whole quilt though.

    I like the idea of doing a tote bag or pillow, but what I want to know is, are they fragile? I'd hate to do all that work, and then catch the organza on something, and rip the face of the bag. thanks.
    Oh, and need I even say...anything, that hasn't already been said, here...gorgeous work! :D

    I have a pattern from years ago for this technique but I was too intimidated to try it, You have perfected it. Lovely.

    Question: do you have the feed dogs on the batting when you are sewing the organza? Doesn't the feed dogs chew at the batting?
