Kimberbell Exclusives Club: "Baby is Sleeping" Trapunto Pillow (Aug. 2019)

From the Italian word for quilt, Trapunto is a technique which adds decorative dimension to quilted designs. We used two extra layers of batting and dense lines of quilting to create the trapunto effect for this sweet baby pillow on the embroidery machine. The bottom border of pink or blue is pieced in-the-hoop to finish the phrase "... is sleeping."

Additional borders with pompom trim and hanging tassels are added on the sewing machine to make a cover just right for Kimberbell's 9.5" x 5.5" rectangle pillow form. Place it on the doorknob whenever baby goes down for a nap as a gentle reminder for big brother and sister to play quietly.
