Text Trapunto Class

on Jan 7, 2015 in Blog, classes, quilting | 0 comments

This Saturday is the first Text Trapunto Class. It filled up quite quickly, and I’m super excited to show the San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild some of my tricks for making words/fonts on quilts.

In the class we are going to make the block above. Rather than have everyone bring a quilt or print fonts/words or plan a phrase, one block will get you the technique and give you a good understanding of how to make the letters pop off your quilts. And the cool part- if it turns out, you can still use it as a mini swap project, pillow or bag front.

I even put together batting packs for the class.

Not sure the students will needs these; they may have already rounded up their batting scraps and are ready for Saturday. But it is good to be prepared.

I even jammed out little tags. What a morning. All of the “step-outs” or steps for creating the block, are finished. Hum. I wonder if I numbered them…..

Wish me luck!!

I’m sure I’ll be back to post all the details and photos from the class. And of course, if you want info about having the class at your shop or guild, check out the deets here and send me an email.
