This post doesn’t have pretty pictures. But I hope I will show you a beautiful quilt in a few weeks.
I started a new shadow trapunto quilt. A large one – well, as large as my organza – a little bigger than 50”.
As I have a small table, I thought to baste the layers on the floor…
Here are batting and organza…
and here I added the paper pattern.
I had the most difficult time pinning through paper on the floor…
I just hope that organza remained stretched and smooth under the paper…
My sister Nina helped me on Friday for a few hours, and now half of the trimming is done…
After the 30 shadow trapunto projects I made for the book, in about 7 months, I was really worried that I will never enjoy making shadow trapunto quilts. But I made a nice design and I thought it would look beautiful done in shadow trapunto. And I started to make it. And I am happy to report that I fell in love with the technique again!
Wishing you a great sewing week,
When I saw your first photo I thought how tricky it might be working with such a big piece of organza. Whatever you make it will look beautiful. So looking forward to seeing it completed.
uffff….great work and patient.
This looks like an interesting design! My days of doing anything on the floor are gone, I use my outdoor picnic table with a heavy plastic cloth over it. Still the weather here in Australia is probably more suited to outdoor pinning!
Your book is wonderful and I'm looking forward to trying out your technique. I just need to clear up a few other projects first! (Like most quilters I guess!)

And it will be another masterpiece!
So glad you are enjoying doing your method of shadow trapunto and can't wait to see the new piece of art you create.
looks wonderful. I can't wait to see it finished.
this looks like it will be beautiful when finished! I received my copy of the book today and what a great book it is.
Era imposibil sa-ti dispara dragostea de trapunto!!Abia astept sa vad acest model!Cele din carte m-au incantat si sper sa reusesc si eu sa fac cael putin modelele mai mici!!!
Inca odata felicitari pentru carte!Totul arata foarte bine!!
I so adore your trapunto method. I am excited to see your new masterpiece!
BTW, I'm a floor girl, too! I tell my kids it keeps me young and flexible, hahahha.

I am fascinated by this method, it looks fab
Gracias por todos tus tutoriales son fantásticos.
Cuando acolchas sobre la organización, no se arruga? No pierde color la tela de fondo debajo de la organza?
Me encantaría ver la técnica de shadow trapunto con diferentes colores, por ejemplo una flor de color rojo con sus hojas verdes, utilizar varias telas de color en el mismo quilt.
Gracias. Saludos desde Spain.
El móvil ha escrito mal mi primera pregunta, quería decir que cuando se acolcha sobre la organza no se arruga?
