Trapunto flowers wall hanging

I wanted to practice trapunto so I went searching for a video on You-tube.  I have been watching free motion quilting videos by Patsy Thompson and saw that she had a couple of videos about trapunto.  So I found some hand dyed fabric from another play day of experimenting with dyes and cut out some tulip flowers and stems and fused them on black fabric.  I used wool batting and placed the batting behind the flowers and stems.  Then I stitched around the flowers and stems and added some thread work on the flowers and stems.  I added cotton batting and a backing.  Then I used a decorative stitch to outline the black fabric using a variegated thread.  Using invisible thread, I quilted the black background and then black thread to quilt the border areas.  I want to try a new technique for an edge finish or binding.  So I will look at ideas on the internet.  Stay tuned to see what I find.  Looking for something fun and different.  Keep having fun sewing and quilting.  Donna
