A Trapunto Brain
Certainly a brain is a strange thing to work in a form of quilting. I've had an idea for a design for over a year but an idea is a far cry from a finished design. It has taken a couple of tries but I may have the brain worked out. The design is not very realistic but it looks enough like a brain to be recognized with the rest of the embroidery. The trapunto piece is a 2 inch circle made by sewing two pieces of white fabric together with a random curling pattern. Then a pink yarn is run inside the pattern creating a pinkish dimensional brain. I wanted to show pictures but the pink isn't dark enough to photograph. This project is still in the creative planning state. Hopefully I will find a good way to do this because I am sure the finished embroidery will be amazing.
