Quilt Top Notes/Techniques

I wanted to make a trapunto feathered wreath for my buzzsaw blocks in my Blue Steel quilt. This was the sampler. I didn’t end up using the wreath on the main quilt, but my samples were worthy of finishing off Quilt As You Go.

Top wreath was my design.
Middle wreath was designed by Anita Shackelford.
Bottom wreath was designed by Three Sisters Fabric.

I thought the finished quilt had a Japanese look, so I named it “Hanawa” or “wreath” in Japanese.

Quilting Notes/Techniques
