I started this quilt quite a while ago. I based it on one of my snowflakes. (see the sidebar on the right of this page for snowflake patterns)
I did all the hand quilting with blue thread and used wool batting. I was pleased with the result and entered it into a few AQS shows.
It is going to AQS in Syracuse next and I decided to add trapunto to it first. You can see a how to trapinto demo here https://timquilts.com/2013/03/26/trapunto-video/
I finished the trapunto last night and washed it today. I wash after doing the trapunto because it helps to close up the little needle holes made by doing the stuffing.
I think it really adds a lot by making the design stand out more.
Several people have asked about what the back will look like so I folded it over to show it, the top layer in the pic is the back.
It always looks better when I erase the floor from the picture.
and changing the background color changes the look
I need to hang it to take another picture…when I take pictures on the floor the quilt gets a bit distorted looking from the camera angle….it really is square.
I have a pattern for the quilt as well which is also linked at the right sidebar of this page. The pattern does not include trapunto directions since I did the pattern long before I decided to add the trapunto.
It is rainy again here today so looks like another quilting day
