Block ten has been started! I have decided to get a couple of the vase blocks taken care of before the summer ends. They are a bit more time consuming, but I find them fun to stitch. This will be the second vase block I have done for this quilt, and you know what they say about third time's the charm. So, for my third vase block I will attempt to actually weave basket reeds!Tim Latimer's great tutorial and some inspiration from the Facebook Group Celebrate Hand Quilting. I have spent several hours today trying a technique called trapunto. There are several methods to achieve a trapunto look, but I am using the method that uses a large darning needle and yarn. As you see in the picture below it is hard to see the feathered wreath on my Amish Ice Cream Social quilt. So, I thought a little trapunto might spice it up.
