I made a special wedding gift recently using a technique called "trapunto quilting". I decided to make something that they can put on their bed, and thought a monogrammed pillow with their initials would be a great gift.
At first I was thinking to applique the initials but I feel like applique would speak too loud for these pillows. So, to make things more subtle, I decided to just hide the initials among the quilting. Besides, there is always a time when you need to practice that free motion skill. So making this pillow was definitely a great practice!
To make the lettering stand out even more, trapunto technique was used for the lettering in these pillows.
At the bottom of their initials, I put " Together.. till Jannah". Jannah means Heaven in arabic.
What do you think? I sure hope the couple love them.
I will publish a tutorial soon for making these pillows. It is certainly a great chance to practice that free motion skill if you have been wanting to do so.
