TRAPUNTO CUSHION

Been busy lately (as has everyone else) and I havent been posting much...sorry (I still read all of yours though)

With my second grandchild due any day now, my very pregnant daughter asked for a cushion for the baby girls room.  She asked for a H on the cushion (wonder what the name will be??)

I found a wonderful tutorial on Pinterest (dont you just love that site) from Quilted Hugs and Other Nonsense.




It was extremely easy to do, I simply cut out the shapes and using Steam-A-Seam, ironed them onto the spotted square.  Then with a layer of batting behind, I raw edged all the shapes.  I then cut away all the loose batting.  This left just the shapes in batting.



Another full layer of batting behind, and I sewed around the outside of the shapes.  This made them stand out but then I stippled all the cushion front.  This REALLY made my applique POP right out.




A ruffle around the edge and a zippered backing and its finished.

   
                                                                                                 
Now all we need is the baby....
