I'm working on a tute fro my blog. When it is up I will link to it from the original post.

Trapunto is a quilting method were, traditionally, parts of the quilt are stuffed to give it a more puffy and raised appearance.

Yet another update 8/28/09

I finally got around to posting a tutorial on  how I tinted this quilt. You can find the info on my blog:

Update 8/2/09

I have now added color to my quilt, and obviously quilted the background. You can see the original pictures if you scroll down. You can also visit my blog to read more and see many more photos( I think I have about 3-4 post on this quilt) http://blog.petitdebutant.com/2009/08/bada-bum.html

This is my very first project involving trapunto and while it isn't finished yet I wanted to share my progress so far:

This is the mini quilt after doing the trapunto. I still need to quilt the background.

This is the back of the quilt to give you an idea of what it will look like once I wash away the blue ink.

There are more pictures and info on my blog:

We too are cursed with blue countertops. Its a terrible plight.

Yours look fantastic. How well do they seem to be holding up? Any chipping?

None so far. I did 2 coats of polyurethane letting dry completely and sanding in between coats. The key to not chipping is a good primer and allowing the primer to cure the length of time specified on the can - it hardens/cures as it dries

I knew this pillow had been  done here before but it took me a minute to find it. lol

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=287223.0 she lists several tips on her blog which is listed in the thread!

I would say get a darning/freemotion foot (which ever your machine manf. calls it) and go to work. the best thing is its all done with fusible webbing such as wonder under and then raw edged applique so that makes it a TON easier! Good luck!

Hey that's me!

First of all (not to be rude or anything) you should probably add a link to Kellie's site since you are using her picture and not your own.

Kellie did a wonderful job with her tutorial and I would follow it exactly. Once you get to the quilting stage you can do a stipple/meandering pattern. And yes you will need a free motion/darning foot. It takes a little practice but like the previous poster said, you are your own worst critic and will notice every imperfection!

I have gotten lots of compliments on my pillow but only I notice the spots where I "messed up"

This is a great project to start off with because it's small enough to finish, and it's small enough to move easily while getting the hang of free motion quilting. Feel free to ask me any questions. Kellie is also great about answering questions

The story in a few key points:

1) Bought a house in November 07
2) Painted kitchen walls and cabinets before moving in
3) Lived with blue floors and blue counter tops for over a year
4) April 09 decided to bite the bullet and paint my counter tops
5) Hubby looking for a new job
6) After a month of planning and putting it off I painted 1/2 the counter tops - May 09
7)Hubby found new job - current company closing office
Cool June 09 - Replaced flooring and finished counter tops while packing for a move to another state
9) June 22 finished poly on counter tops and moved out!

We now have friends renting our house and enjoying my beautiful kitchen. Hopefully we can move back to TN when the economy picks back up. I know there is a nice kitchen waiting for me! It's amazing what a little paint and a lot of elbow grease can do.

there are more pictures and a how to on the counter tops on my blog:

The awesome "after"

The ugly "before"

I didn't read all the posts btu maybe mixing some textile medium with the acrylics would keep it from cracking.

What a pretty doll quilt!!!!  The colors you chose worked out perfect!  Do you mind sharing what issue the pattern was in?  Thanks

I'll have to go dig through my magazines... wait I just Googled it. It's the Fall 2008 "Easy Quilts" issue
