    Here are a few of my shadow trapunto quilts.
    I am in love ( and crazy) with this technique.
    I made even bowls, purses and postcards using it.
    I hope you like them.

    They are absolutely beautiful. You go back and hand dye the fabrics after you do the quilting stitches?

    Here it is the essence of making my shadow trapunto quilt.

    http://cadouri-din-inima.blogspot.co...nou-quilt.html

    The first layer of the quilt is organza. The white motifs under organza are made from batting. And under these there are 3 layers (cotton fabric, batting and a backing)- like in an ordinary quilt.

    O. MY. GOD!!


    That's soooooo amazing!
    I just quickly looked through your blog, I'll have to check it out some more when I get home from work tonight. I understand the process, thanks! Actually, I reallllly wantto try it now, I'm going to try a small wall hanging or pillow cover or something to start out with. I will pick up some fabric tonight at work and try it. Thank you soooo much for explaining it in detail on your blog :)

    Oh, ya, what is that tool you were talking about on the site that is for cutting away the batting? I didn't see anywhere where I could buy or download the patterns or instructions, it just says coming soon...
