I have been following a fantastic romanian quilter by the name of Geta Grama for a while now. She does fantastic shadow trapunto work and handbags. Last year I was delighted to learn that she put out a book for her shadow trapunto technique and bought my copy as soon as it came out!
|Shadow Trapunto Quilts, Geta Grama|
This is the second one I did:
This now has a happy home with S in Auckland.
I love the book, nice and clear instructions, great photography and some stunning quilts to try. It is was first time in a long long time that I was interested in making someone else's design as is. I usually can't bring myself to do more than the general idea of the pattern and adapt to fit my own style. But these are so lovely. I think the next time I'll still do my own design but...I'll also add one of her original designs to the to do list too!
In the meantime I'll just pore over the book a few more times
