Ocean Waves Trapunto Square

Trapunto is an elegant quilting technique that raises surfaces on the front of a quilt by either padding it from the back or by stuffing it with batting. In Italian, trapunto translates as “to embroider” and in Latin it translates as “to prick”. It is reported to have originated as early as the 14th century, and was brought to America by Italian and English immigrants. Traditionally, trapunto was done entirely by hand, then later by free motion embroidery. OESD has now developed a technique that allows machine embroiderers to achieve the same regal look with their embroidery machine. Beautiful!
