TRAPUNTO QUILTING IN THE HOOP Thursdays, June 14th & 21st 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. By Valerie Witbracht $75 includes design CD

Trapunto is a traditional quilting technique that results in a “puffed” or raised design.  Originally done by cutting out the back of the design and stuffing it with poly-fill it is now so much easier using your embroidery machine and treating your batting as an applique. You can achieve the trapunto effect in less that half the time.  This runner class shows you how to complete this technique on your embroidery machine and can be adapted to any amount of blocks and any size.  You will leave this class confident in doing hooped trapunto blocks and able to make anything from a pillow size to a lap quilt in a fast and easy manner.

SUPPLY SHEET – We are using Anita Good Designs Mix and Match Quilting, “Trapunto Blocks” which you will need to order from S & R Sewing. These Trapunto designs are in four sizes, 5”, 6”, 7” and 8”. There are several designs to choose from. I only used one because it looked so good with my damask print. Feel free to use as many as five. Choose whichever size you can do on your embroidery machine. I have given the fabric supplies based on each size. Also feel free to make your runner longer or turn it into a lap quilt. You will leave class knowing how to do either. The following measurements are based on ten finished blocks. 

Fabric Supplies for 5” finished block: (Finished runner size is ~10” X 25”)

¼ yard solid color in 100% cotton fabric

7/8 yard medium to large print in 100% cotton fabric.

Enough batting for 30 / 7” squares. The higher the loft, the more the trapunto will stand out. Some recommend polyester batting for high loft. I used cotton and polyester blend, 80 cotton and 20 poly.

No Mesh, light weight stabilizer, enough for 10 hoopings the size you choose. We are going to leave this light weight stabilizer in so NO “wash away” needed.

Precutting: Cut 5 / 7” squares of your solid material. Cut your print in half lengthwise. Out of the one piece, cut out 5 / 7” squares of the print. Save the rest for the backing. Cut 30 / 7” squares of batting. If you do choose a high loft batting you can reduce the batting by cutting out only 20 squares.
