- 3 techniques - 1 quilt -
1. The center design is stitched using English Paper Piecing technique.
2. The snowflakes are raw edge appliqued.
3. Under snowflakes there is trapunto.
This pattern doesn't explain in detail English Paper Piecing. There are instructions on how to baste the fabric to the paper templates. How to whip stitch the pieces together is not explained. It assumes that you know this technique.
If you don't know this technique and want to learn it, there are many free tutorials on Internet. You can search the terms "English Paper Piecing Tutorial" on Google.
Quick and easy quilt.
Print the pattern, cut out the templates and start stitching.
This design is handstitched, still this is a quick project.
Learn to make trapunto. Without water-soluble thread!
I did trapunto under the snowflakes.
This is an optional step, but it is worth the time and effort,
because the design will have a more pronounced 3D appearance.
