Why 2 in 1 quilt?
Because on the back it looks like a trapunto quilt…
…and the front is actually a shadow trapunto quilt. A 40” quilt.
You usually see details like this one below in the background of my photos.
It is a quilt that I use for its back! I made it in 2008! I could say it’s a utilitarian quilt! It’s the only wall hanging I use, but not as wall hanging!
Since 2008 I washed it twice.
The front was important only when I took a picture of it and sent it to a big show in France. It was rejected! The theme was “feathers”!
So this quilt made me cry – silly Geta! I was so disappointed because I thought this quilt is much better than other two quilts that were accepted in the Houston show!
The technique was much improved (my free motion quilting skills, actually), unlike the one on my first shadow trapunto quilts.
It was entirely quilted with monofilament (invisible) thread. At the time I was a big fan of this thread. Not anymore – because the thread is so fine, the holes left by needle in fabric are more apparent (still, sometimes this thread is a must, so I have a few spools to hand!).
So, this is the story of this quilt (I receive often questions about the quilt in the background of my photos). It wasn’t good for a show in France, but it is PERFECT for my photography!! And it definitely is one of my favorite quilts and I don’t know when I will have time again for so much cutting batting away!
Now to choose fabric for a new quilt!
