Today I did a workshop with Deb Louie…she is an award winning quilter and teaches her techniques too!
We got to try Trapunto feathers -
Excuse my basting lines, it is a work in progress!
We did practice quilting, I guess you’d call this feature quilting because of the black thread and then we coloured in the flowers and leaves.
I have never done trapunto, feathers, flowers or leaves like this before so it has been great to build on the skills I already have. And I found out about a few things I didn’t know before which is always great – like wash away thread!
This is very much a work in progress, maybe a 2 day workshop would have given us a finished project but I will keep plugging away at it at home.
And lastly something else I couldn’t leave in the shop….
PS. Sorry about the less than fabulous pictures!
