Trapunto Pattern - Reproduction of Museum Quilt

Recently I corresponded with Donna about an antique quilt she had shown which belongs to a local museum.  At first I thought it might even be a boutis, and Donna was kind enough to go and look again and take more pictures.  The quilt is a lovely white  trapunto, and she had the idea of reproducing the pattern to raise money for the museum.  So of course when the pattern was ready, I bought one.  If you are interested, go visit her blog.  The quilt is large, 88 x 88 inches, and the border is quite lovely.  Donna has included her instructions  for the trapunto.  Of course, this could also be made as a boutis, omitting the batting, drawing in channel lines and stitching and stuffing as for the boutis.  The cost is $40 plus $4.95 for priority mailing in the US. (No affiliation, of course !)

It's a really great project and an impressive pattern for both of trapunto and boutis!

Oh my gosh Heather!I've died and gone to boutis' heaven! I'm so excited to have found your blog!

Oh I can't wait to read more. Learning boutis' has been such a lonely art. :o)

I'll be bragging about you soon!

Hi Donna,
I'm glad you like the blog. I adore boutis and am sure I will always make them. I have been doing this for a few years now, you might want to look at old blog posts.
