my koi fish pond - shadow trapunto - second attempt at trapunto
Nice...very nice! What did you use to create the color in the trapunto? I did trupunto years back with dayglow yarn that was VERY fat. It wasn't as easy as it looked, lol. This is a very pretty quilt. You did a wonderful job on it!
aww thanks for the compliments! I"m embarassed for Karen McTavish to see how I mutilated her techniques! I sorta shoed myself into the batik challenge at the show and we were required to use the Hobbs batting (which I loved) and the Sew Batik 4 fabrics they gave us (also luvvvedddd!) in these bright tropical green, yellow, orange, and an orange with purple. Did everything on the fly with all the wrong supplies since I didn't have the $$ to go get all the right stuff but I think all in all it is ok ;) good practice at the very least! and YESSSS it's a little trickier than it looks! LOL
Fantastic quilting and the overall design is gorgeous. Great job with a difficult technique.
WOW! That is a beautiful and totally awesome quilt! Where your fabrics muted that way or did you use them backside out? You have some amazing talent and a fantastic imagination. There did I use enough adjectives, LOL.
hahahaa@Joni! Love it!!! This quilt is in the Sew Batik Challenge at the HMQS show this week! The fabric was bright tropical batiks furnished by Sew Batik and then we had to use the Hobbs batting also provided. I put them behind a sheer poplin white to get the pastel effect. I have to admit that I'm determined to get this technique down because I just love the results! The center koi fish started off with the basic design of the tattoo that is on my upper arm...also ispired by Karen McTavish lol ...When I showed my tattoo artist the quilt he was just amazed what i did with his design and how it turned out. :D
