I used water soluble thread, not the traditional way of stuffing through the back of the quilt after you have quilted, I like this way as it it neat and crisp...and no whip stitching any seams!
I did a feather in the border and designed a feather for the four cream corners.
Here is a close up of the feather border, I used a Signature variegated thread for the Micro stipple background.

Here is a close up of the nine patch. I McTavished swirly 'hair' in the cream squares.
I would really like to make time to do more Trapunto as I really love the rich textured look, but it is time consuming...but fun to do. The designing of the quilting pattern is fun too.
