Are you a trapunto enthusiast? Do you enjoy quilting by hand but also enjoy the ease by which you can quilt using a machine? If so, you are not alone. Many quilters, with today’s technology, find that using quilting machines create a more efficient quilting process, saving time, money, and energy. But, when using the trapunto style of quilting, engaging in the hand method may provide for a more rewarding experience.
When considering the ways in which you will display your quilting, it is always best to use the technique that provides the best quality result in the end. When showing your trapunto quilting technique, many quilters will appreciate your “by hand” technique far more than they will the machine quilting technique. To do the trapunto style by hand, special tools, yarn, and hand techniques must be employed and sites like, Quiltsalott, will provide tips on how to start the “by hand” process.
If you are still interested in using a machine for this type of quilting design, remember that your technique must still be accurate and clean. Enrolling in local trapunto quilting classes is always recommended but if you are pulled for time constraints, then consider viewing a variety of quilting YouTube channels for information on these techniques. We wish you the best in your quilting endeavors!
