Oh my goodness, I’m certain you are going to love the quilty goodness I’m sharing today. Geta Grama has the most unbelievable blog on quilting I have ever seen!!! Her quilts, shadow trapunto, quilted boxes and ideas are out of this world. Geta is from Romania and her story about quilting is simply amazing. Rather than me trying to re-tell what she has so eloquently written herself, I direct you to Geta’s blog to read the story about her love of quilting and shadow trapunto for yourself. I believe you will enjoy reading about her quilting journey as much as I have.
But wait until you see the project she shares on her blog which she simply calls a “Quilted Bowl”. Now I have seen a variety of stitched bowls in the past. Some of those bowls were quite unique and lovely, yet none have measured up to this amazing trapunto bowl made by Geta. Not only has Geta shared pictures of the finished bowl, but she also has an in-depth picture tutorial along with a pattern download for this incredible project. No, in my opinion this isn’t just a quilted bowl, but rather a beautiful piece of artwork made by the hands of a talented artisan.
I have never tried trapunto but who knows, maybe Geta has placed a bug in my ear to try a new technique that I never thought I would. Even in my wildest dreams I could never do this bowl justice when making one myself, but I’d love to give this technique a try to see the results. I may make one panel using the trapunto shadow technique to get a feel for making the intricate design then I can move forward from that point.
In my humble opinion, Geta’s blog is one you want to spend some time with and enjoy. There is so much to learn, including a unique method of holding a quilt while Free Motion Quilting. She shares this technique with an excellent pictorial which I wholeheartedly recommend reading.
I just can’t say enough about Geta, so if you are a beginning quilter and just starting the adventure of quilting or a seasoned professional, I feel certain Geta’s blog will inspire and teach you much as it has me. Thank you, Geta, for sharing your beautiful quilted creations, tutorials, inspiration and of course your quilted bowl with us.
Just one more thing, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the beautiful quilt the bowl is sitting upon. The quilting is absolutely stunning and I can’t imagine the hours and hours it took to create such a beautiful quilt. You can see more of this beautiful quilt as it is featured at the bottom of the free motion quilting tutorial.
Well that’s it for today, I hope you enjoy the beautiful project, tutorials and story of an inspirational artist.
Thanks for visiting and have a Blessed Day!
