Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Trapunto, the technique used to produce raised quilting designs, is traditionally a time-consuming, labor-intensive task. Tiny holes must be made in the back of the quilt, stuffing added, then the holes stitched closed. But this handsome book demonstrates a different method that produces the same beautiful results with much less work. (One of the secrets to this approach is water-soluble basting thread.) In six easy lessons, we learn stipple quilting, machine trapunto, backtracking over stitches, shading with stitches, two-layer trapunto, and shadow trapunto. All of this is prefaced by a section on tools, accessories, choosing batting, and the basics of free-motion stitching. There are plenty of tips and helpful hints scattered throughout, and many lovely full-size trapunto patterns interspersed with color photos of finished quilts utilizing these patterns.

This book was published in 1996 and the designs appear slightly dated.

I just received this book and can't wait to try some of the ideas presented. The book covers everything from simple (heart-shaped) designs to shadow trapunto to more complex quilting designs. The projects are very well presented. Each chapter builds on the techniques presented in the one before. The book is very well organized and contains beautiful color photographs of finished quilts that are sure to inspire you. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to try machine trapunto.

This book was published in 1996 and the designs appear slightly dated. It has excellent information regarding the equipment and conditions necessary for successful machine trapunto and seems geared for the beginning quilter. While the book pictures every kind of darning foot you will ever find, it does not show the more modern (and similar) free motion quilting feet available now. While the book does recommend the sturdy Schmetz jeans/denim needle, it does not really address needle breakage, which could occur given the very thick quilts which might result using this technique.

The book contains practice exercises, shows what mistakes might occur and contains patterns and ideas. Some of the design are a little dated, others still look very useful. The instructions for the trapunto technique are very good. The book is divided into six lessons and contains 21 full-size patterns.

Hari Walner's 1999 book Exploring Machine Trapunto New Dimensions contains additional more complicated designs and full size patterns, but not as much information on the basics. I also liked Diane Gaudynski's Quilt Savvy Machine Quilting Guidebook, which contains a good ideas for trapunto and machine quilting beginner - intermediate quilts.

I have this book and Hari Walner's other book (Exploring Machine Trapunto: New Dimensions) and both are wonderful. Beautiful illustrations and detailed instructions. And the quilt I made is fantastic, going to make another one soon! I highly recommend either book.
