Trapunto, from the Italian for “to embroider,” is a method of quilting that is also called “stuffed technique.” A puffy, decorative feature, trapunto utilizes at least two layers, the underside of which is slit and padded, producing a raised surface on the quilt.
Traditional Trapunto was a very time consuming technique because it was all created by hand. We have found a faster way. Utilizing a technique where you place and cut multiple layers of batting we have found a way for you to create classic Trapunto techniques in your hoop.
For our latest Trapunto collection we decided to a sewing machine and notions collection. What better way to showcase this technique! There are 20 different main designs along with border designs. We have of course also included a step-by-step tutorial so you will master this technique in no-time.
The best part about this collection is that you can combine it with other Anita Goodesign collections! This collection is part of the “Mix and Match” quilt line. All of the design collections that are in the “Mix and Match” line come with 5”, 6”, 7” and 8” blocks and are fully interchangeable. There are redwork collections, folded fabric collections, special editions, jelly roll collections plus many others.
Hoop sizes 5” x 7” to 8” x 12”
