Here is a page from my 1935 Needlewoman magazine showing the latest fashion houses' Trapunto designs:
Here's a great Trapunto design on a 1940s dress from Etsy:
Two great links for Trapunto quilting includes this great tutorial and video link from the QuiltsALott blog and this link to a great pinterest board on Trapunto designs.
Don't you just love it? I definitely want to try my hand at Trapunto quilting and have the perfect pattern in McCall 840 from 1941:
I've had this pattern in my collection for some time, I just love the design (looks almost Scottish or Celtic). When I found the pattern again for a steal in my size, I bought it again so that I could give one away for someone else to try their hand at a vintage Trapunto pattern! I'm hosting the giveaway for McCall 840 in size 14 (or Bust 32) over at my Facebook page (there's a link to my Facebook page in my right sidebar) where it's easier to keep track of entries and notify the winner. Hop on over and enter to win! I'll ship anywhere. It will be fun to have a sewing buddy who's making this at the same time as me :)
Have you ever tried Trapunto? What do you think?
