DDT Wreath Trapunto christmas block in the hoop quilting

Drop Dead Threads


Trapunto is a method similar to applique, but gives a totally different effect. You initially lay batting instead of fabric over placement lines and a design stitches over the top of the batting, you then trim the batting down as close the to the tack down stitches leaving the remaining batting inside the design lines, you then lay a piece of fabric which you intend to use for the top of the quilt block and then continue to stitch the rest of the design out, the machine will stitch the design around the batting first then the last step adds a tight dense stipple stitch around the entire block, this gives the design a puffy 3D effect. You will create your blocks in the hoop but there are some basic sewing skills are required to piece your blocks and assemble as part of a finished product eg. Quilt, placement, table runner etc
