Do you know someone that needs a word of encouragement? Creating messages with batting and thread is a simple task! Let’s see the example below.
Enhancing a quilt design and giving it a pronounced “stuffed” effect with an additional layer of batting is called “trapunto”.
It’s a beautiful technique, it requires simple tasks and the effect is gorgeous – you don’t only see it, you feel it!
If you want to learn more about this technique, follow this trapunto tutorial.
Here are a few pictures that illustrate the whole process.
I quilted the entire quilt with Aurifil thread: 12wt thread to outline the letters and for the heart lines and 50wt for the dense quilting around the letters.
So much fun!
