Bloggers Quilt Festival ~ Spring 2012

May 19, 2012

     Welcome to my blog and viewing my entry for the Bloggers Quilt Festival ~ Spring 2012  that Amy hosts twice a year.

     This is my Valentine Quilt called "Valentine Feathers" I made this year.  It  is a 24" x 24" Trapunto Wall Quilt and quilted in free motion on my domestic sewing machine.

     I adapted this pattern and used techniques I learned from Sharon Schamber on her "Trapunto" YouTube;  I also applied techniques I learned from Cindy Needham called "Sunshine and Shadow" stippling. The fabric and batting is cotton, for the trapunto work I added a polyester batting, and the thread work is rayon thread.

     Thank you for viewing my work and visiting my blog J
