    OMG!!! This was so fun! I will for sure be doing more!!!!
    Geta"s beautiful work was my inspiration, just had to give it a shot!!!! I am pretty happy with it but should have done the swags a little different, they look kind of big and clunky. But my thought was to do something fairly simple for the first one.

    It measures 35 x 33

    Wow! This looks tricky. Did you find a tut or have a book?

    Great job!

    Nice work. Trapunto is one of those things that scares me and I've never tried it. Fun, huh?

    No book or tute. After checking out Geta's blog, I just winged it! It really is a lot easier than it looks!! :D

    I think she should come to Spain with me and then she can teach the both of us how to do it. What you think?

    Thank you Geta! I just love yours so much, I had to try!! The next one will be a little more intricate. I was afraid to do too much detail at first but it much easier than I thought so I am ready to go a little fancier!! :D
