Trapunto Quilting

Winter is here, and getting colder by the day.  So making time for sewing/quilting is hard, especially early mornings and evenings.  So I wait till the sun is warming up my little sewing space before I even think of doing any quilting.  

I would sit behind my laptop having few too many cups of coffee searching for ideas on the internet.  It's a wonderful source of information, especially since every thing I've learnt and learning still comes from this huge library.  So I was looking at trapunto quilting, how to and ideas.

So I thought of trying it and decided to do a small or rather medium quilt using circles.  

I used paisley FMQ design
Piecing this quilt was fast, simple and very quick.  I used scraps fabric for the circles.  I love how they 'pop' and it gives the quilt so much texture.  I'm about halfway done, and cant wait to bind it.  I plan on (if it comes out looking good) to put this on Kayleigh's wall.
Back of quilt
 Happy quilting.
