“Trapunto” Quilting in the hoop
Trapunto, from the Italian for "to quilt," is a method of quilting that is also called "stuffed technique." A puffy, decorative feature, Trapunto utilizes at least two layers of batting. Traditional Trapunto would have you slit the backing of the quilt to stuff another layer of batting into the quilt, but with today’s technology and embroidery machines, we can create Trapunto quilting as easy as changing the thread and pushing the ‘go’ button on our machines. Come and see how to sew out Trapunto quilt designs, create your own designs, and modify existing applique embroidery designs to be Trapunto designs. The possibilities are almost endless!
