This is one of my favorite shadow trapunto quilts. It measures about 35”.
The design was inspired by a sashiko pattern; I adore its simplicity.
You must think that it was hard to cut away this intricate design. Not at all!
Do you remember the AMAZING tool I use for cutting away?? With these thread snips, it is so easy to access any area you need to cut away. Its tip is sharp and because the blade is short, you have an amazing control over what you have to cut away.
And the (trapunto) back!
I must admit: this technique produces AMAZING quilts!
