Trapunto Designs

These are instructions on how to embroider the designs from the Fruits and Flower Trapunto Quilting Block Set I and Fruits and Flower Trapunto Quilting Block Set II. Both sets are available in 2 sizes for large (5" x 7") and mega (8" x 10") hoops. All designs from the sets are embroidered in the same way.

For the project you will need:

  • Sulky Puffy Foam, 2mm thick (see ),
  • 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 designs into your machine.

Hoop the base fabric with stabilizer. Place a sheet of puffy foam inside the hoop. To keep it in place, use pieces of quilter's tape.

Step Two: Start embroidering. The machine will embroider the outline (the frame) of the design and stop.
