Trapunto Poppies

Trapunto Poppies No. 1

Trapunto has been around for eons. It is no less beautiful today as it was years ago. It took painstaking time and dexterity to make trapunto. Today with the invention of embroidery machines we can make trapunto in just a few minutes. Even better is the more recent quilt battings made for trapunto. No more trimming excess batting from outside the main design in a block. Just flatten out everything around it and it ‘poofs’. Voila’!

 

Available in 3 sizes – 4×4, 6×6, and 8×8

These designs include two types of trapunto designs.

  • First – Trapunto designs with intense stitching. These are actually 3 shades of a color, but I sewed mine in all one color thread – Pink
  • Second – Trapunto designs with less intense stitching and sewn in just one color. Shown in Green

Either one makes beautiful quilt blocks for you to enjoy.
