Trapunto Rose Cushion
Author: Rhonda Chandler Date Posted:23 April 2020
Skill level: Advanced
In this project, we'll be creating a beautiful cushion cover using our Echidna Rose Blocks 1 and Rose Blocks 2 design sets. We will apply both the redwork and trapunto method along with adding quilting fill around the center design to create an elegant dimensional effect to the cushion. For an extra special touch, we'll attach gathered lace and frill to the outer edge of the cushion using My Design Center.
