Trapunto in OLD Quilts
Part 2

My last blog featured two mid-19th century quilts with two different styles of trapunto .

Below are two more examples of early quilts, made by women who used trapunto in yet more ways!

"Single Lily" ~ circa 1850
A "sampler" of trapunto designs ~ a different one in each white block

Boutis ~ Provence, France ~ circa 1850

A wholecloth quilt in which the trapunto IS the design of the quilt.

To see more photos of the Boutis:
