The trapunto pillow cover is finally completed. Here are some pictures:
Here's the new pillow cover before it was washed. See how pointy the corners are. This is when I realized that I forgot to adjust for the dogears.
Here's the pillow cover after the dogear adjustment and being washed. I looks like I could done more than 1/2" adjustment but I do not plan on making any additional changes to this pillow cover. I don't have a picture of the back but it has a lapped zipper application as shown in this tutorial.
I'm happy with my first attempt at machine trapunto. As far as a technique for our monthly sewing get together, I would call this a success. Both of us finished our projects. This is a technique I would like to revisit for other projects. I'm even happy with my second attempt at doing free motion quilting. I can't remember if I said anything about my first free motion quilting attempt but I wasn't sure that I would ever revisit the free motion quilting after I did it.
If you're interested in attempting the machine trapunto, this post talks a bit about technique with links to how-to sources. This post shows my work on the pillow case.
