trapunto

Here's my first try at trapunto.
I saw this pattern in a magazine, now it did have some applique on the border, but once I did everything else here, I just loved the simpleness of it all
I instead quilted holly stuff around the border
a new squiggly design around the white part

so this is the trapunto part, when appliqueing, you cut out a piece of batting that's larger than what you are appliqueing, I pinned it to the front and back, the zig zagged around the edges



then flipped it over and CAREFULLY cut away the surrounding batting


when everything is done, I quilt like normal with a layer of batting between everything.
