Trapunto - Technique Tuesday


 Come and learn a simple way of making your quilted projects stand out --- quite literally.

Trapunto is an Italian word meaning “to quilt.” This method originated in Italy before the 14th century. Recently it was used on the inner-tunic collars on Star Fleet uniforms in the movie Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

This technique, part by machine, part by hand, will add a third dimension to your wall-hangings, throw-pillows, even handbags.
