As the last piece of my Christmas sewing project for this year, I transformed a quilt panel into 3 throw pillow covers. I cut up the “Share The Joy Snowman” (from Moda) quilt panel, and split it into 5 parts in order to get 3 snowman panels and 2 strips of text banners. With them and additional matching fabrics, I sewed and trapunto quilted 3 throw pillow covers that has 3 different snowman prints on each. In order to make all 3 pillows a little different, I changed the side panels with quilt blocks: Christmas Tree [updated] and Pinwheel (tutorial to follow soon).

Oh my, I deeply fell in love with this quilting style and technique, not only that it gives the 3 dimension effect on the print, it makes the quilt so soft and nice to touch. My kids can never stop stroking their face and hands on the snowman, squeeze and cuddle them all the time. I bet if the weather can get any cooler, they will sure love to hug them to sleep…. Kids, blankets are on the way… please be patient :)

Remember the Whale baby trapunto quilt blanket I sewed for my friend’s newborn son, where I mentioned that I have lost all the step by step tutorial photos and only can write the tutorial with some “done” photos to explain. If you landed here from that blanket post, you will be able to see some photos that could help you to understand better, especially the 3D trapunto quilting part. Click page 2 for details.

    I haven’t done any quilting before but promised to sew a friend’s new born a quilt. I just bought a nice panel and looking for tutorials on how to initiate the project. I am stressed out right now but thanks. absolutely going to give this trapunto technique a try. thanks for this wonderful blog.
