She wanted to make a pillow for her friend, so she had me quilt up a small piece of fabric with a letter T on it. It’s hard to see the quilting on the front, so here is a picture of the back:
This was quilted with 2 layers of Dream Puff Batting, made by Quilter’s Dream….it was so thick, I thought that I wasn’t going to be able to quilt it! But I just took it slow and it ended up working fine.
Look how thick the T is!
In case you were wondering, real trapunto is when you quilt around the designs with with a thick batting and then trim the excess batting away. Then you reload it and quilt the whole thing again. Here is a blog post about a quilt I quilted with trapunto.
And here are some pictures of the finished quilt. It was definitely worth the hours of work!
On a totally different subject, I wanted to point out that if you follow me on twitter, I changed my twitter name to AngelaFMQ. When I first signed up for twitter, I never imagined that people would actually follow me, so I didn’t pick an easy name…oops!
On Monday, I will have the next post in the “Deciding What to Quilt” series…..but this time, I am turning the tables. I have a quilt that I have no idea how to quilt. So put on your thinking caps, because I am going to bribe you for your suggestions with a giveaway!!
Have a fabulous weekend! Happy Quilting!!!
