My Trapunto Progress

Since I was off this Monday, I made sure I had a productive one! I managed to get 5 Trapunto blocks trapuntoed!!!!!! I still have a ton more to go, but hey it's a start right!!!

The other big thing I did today was pick out the paint colours for my new house! It was a really nice sunny day and the sun was just pouring into the condo living room. So I took the ton of paint chips and colours booklets I picked up last week and chose all the rooms! I'm soooooo excited! This Trapunto quilt will be for my bedroom! I used a muslin for the fabric. I want to put the room in creams, browns and blues. With the trapunto quilt on the bed, I am thinking of a nice chocolate brown for a bed skirt, then make lots of nice pillow accents in browns, creams and blues!!! ooh and my kitchen walls will be a chocolate colour!! hee hee do you see a pattern here??? Chocolate all over the house !!!! I will post some photos soon of the paint chips I am thinking of using soon. First I want to take them to the house this weekend and see how they will work up against the walls. The closing day is Thursday!! I can't WAIT!!! Soon I will have the keys in my hands!

Til Next Time!

Quiltingly Yours

Happy St. Patrick's Day! It isn't a legal holiday here but it is celebrated with lots of fun.

Your trapunto looks fabulous! I've never done any of that -- is it hard?

Question -- you mention glue on your Grandmother's Flower Garden.
What are you glueing? I worked on mine, also, but I don't seem to have made as much progress as you did -- tell me your secret, please!
