This quilt is my Blogger Quilt Festival Entry. It is a quilt I made for a wedding present in 2010.
I invited the bride to my house to look through books to see what she liked. She loved the wholecloths in the Karen McTavish book and especially the shadow trapuntos. Blue is her color.
I took some other ideas from the book and drew out my pattern.
I used my longarm to sew the batting to the sheer fabric and then cut away. I had only a couple of tiny bad cuts. I thought that was pretty good for a first time.
I took some time to find a blue that would show through the sheer without looking like mud, but I found one that was beautiful big hydrandeas and it worked well. Quilting it was so much fun. Trapunto helps you to keep to the lines quite easily. It's like your machine wants to flow.
And here is the finished quilt on their bed. I heard for a fact that they are using it right now. It's so nice to have my quilts used.
