Trapunto Flower Design






This is a little project I started and discarded a while ago. I didn't like the echoing I did around the flower. And the pebbles? They're about the size of a pencil eraser or smaller. Time consuming! But I've kept it around as an example of faux trapunto. There's both a polyester and wool batting in this sample. I'm thinking of incorporating a similar flower in a new project.

I'd like to make a wedding gift for a couple who are getting married very soon and I need to get some sort of design figured out. Problem is, I don't know them very well. I know they aren't very traditional, but more so than the last couple who got a wedding gift made by me. I know they've got bedding with grey in it.

What to do, what to do? Visit Pinterest, I guess and look through my stash. Which is where I stumbled upon this old project. I do have a nice light grey solid that I'm planning to use. Maybe it's time to leaf through my Dover copyright free image books.

I hope to share the design with you soon!

  1. LOL!! Now there's the difference between you and me. Your "discards" and "didn't likes" I'd be brandishing around like Olympic medals. Before I even read your article I LOVED the way you echoed the flower. Kudos on those pencil sized pebbles. They're awesome!
