The San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild recently hosted a Texty Trapunto workshop! It was taught by me, Jen. I'm the owner of ReannaLily Designs Sewing & Quilting Pattern Company and an advertising sponsor of the SAMQG.
Big thanks to Danielle who is the Workshops Committee chair. She organized the class location, registration and, in this case, the re-schedule date due to weather.
The class was held at Sew It Fabulous in Boerne, TX, in January 2015. If you missed the class, the shop owner, Tish, is having me out to teach it again on February 28th, 2015. Contact the shop for more details.
We had a total of 14 students. Sew It Fabulous was so nice to host us and let us keep a tab as we shopped & stitched.
The Trapunto method was going along very smoothly. Cutting and cutting. Prepping and prepping.
Then we got into the stitching. Stitching and Stitching and free motion quilting and quilting.
We had ladies use the Ampersand stencil. We had ladies bring their own chubby fonts for tracing and we had one industrious stitcher draft her own letter. It was quite an assortment of projects.
The class even saw a few folks finish the whole trapunto, raised-text block. The last step is to dissolve the water soluble thread.
I hope to see the blocks at the next quilt meeting. You guys did an amazing job! And now, just think of all the fun quilted projects where you can add shapes and letters.
Thanks again for letting me share the Texty Trapunto technique.
