Catherine Coget illustrates these techniques, inspired by designs used by embroiderers in years gone by. Flowers, leaves, fruit, birds and hearts are embellished with lines, curves, scallops and circles, and the quilted outlines accentuate the simple elegance of the work. Transparent white fabric is traditionally used for boutis, which is padded and worked on both sides; this highlights the delicate patterns adding to their beauty. Trapunto is padded and worked on one side of cotton fabric. Both methods can be combined to create stunning, original designs for the home. Using step-by-step photographs, simple patterns and easy-to-follow instructions, the author presents an interesting and inspiring guide to these timeless techniques.
