Winter is the CPP word prompt this week. Let me say right off.........I HATE winter, seriously, yes I am Canadian but I could happily skip from Autumn right into Spring. I have 2 responses to this word. ( well 3 really but I can't post the third)
The first idea came to me as I was blog hopping, I came across Geta's Quilting Studio where you can see her incredible Shadow Trapunto. Not only does she have a monthly giveaway of her quilts but you can purchase her E-Book that gives you all you need to know to begin your own journey into Shadow Trapunto.
Those of you who are regular readers know that I generally like to do my own thing and when I saw her work I thought........hmmmmm I wonder how she does this. So I set about making this piece with supplies I had on hand.........not quite it, but quick and fun to do. In this particular case, I cut my snowflake from Warm and White Cotton batting, layered it under tulle and over a regular quilt sandwich. I stitched around the snowflake with invisible thread and then spent time getting in some free motion practice.
I want to be clear that this is NOT Geta's method ....... I have since purchased her E-Book and I am not about to giveaway her secrets. I can hardly wait to give her technique a try.
and of course, there just had to be a doodle. Used one of these way too often last year, hopefully we will have just a bit less to have to move this season.
