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:
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.
Step Three: Neatly break off the foam around the outline of the design.
Step Four: 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 Five: Start the machine again and finish the embroidery.
The finished embroidery can be used in quilts or can be framed.
