Trapunto Quilting Block Set

These are instructions on how to embroider the designs from the Trapunto Quilting Block Set. The set is available in 2 sizes for large (5" x 7") and mega (8" x 10") hoops.
All 6 designs from the set are embroidered in the same way.

For the project you will need:

  • Sulky Puffy Foam, 2mm thick (see https://www.sulky.com/puffyfoam/ ),
  • Quilter's tape,
  • Regular cotton fabric for the base,
  • Light-weight cotton (such as batist) for the top,
  • Light-weight tear-away stabilizer,
  • Rayon or polyester embroidery threads.
Use size 12/80 embroidery needle.

Step One: Upload any of the trapunto design into your machine.

Hoop the base fabric with stabilizer. Start embroidering. The machine will embroider the outline of the design and stop.

Step Two: Cover the outline with a sheet of puffy foam. To keep it in place, use pieces of quilter's tape.

Step Three: Start the machine. It will embroider the outlines of the design and stop.

Step Four: Neatly break off the foam around the outline of the design and inside the stitched shapes.

Step Five: Cover the working piece with a sheet of light-weight cotton fabric, e.g. batist. Pin the edges of the fabric outside the embroidery field.

Step Six: Start the machine again and finish the embroidery.

Happy Embroidering!
